So I’ve been running Dogwonder Ltd. since 10th September 2012, just over a year. It’s been quite a ride, I’ve learnt an incredible amount about myself and had to deal with many challenges, not least project managing myself. I’ve not shared much during my first year as really just wanted to get on with it, but felt it was time to show some of the sites I have been working on in the last year. I’ve not put everything here, as mostly wanted to share the sites I have built responsively. All of the sites below are built on WordPress.
So this blog turns nine years old today.
Still posting rather infrequently, but it’s still mine, and now the official company website.
As per tradition(ish) I will re-post my first ever post, which still holds up imho as a way of viewing the web, by the much missed Jean Baudrillard
“Virtuality, being itself virtual, does not really happen. One lives in the very Rousseauistic idea that there is in nature a good use for things that can and must be tried. I don’t think that it is possible to find a politics of virtuality, a code of ethics of virtuality because virtuality virtualizes politics as well: there will be no politics of virtuality, because politics has become virtual; there will be no code of ethics of virtuality, because the code of ethics has become virtual, that is, there are no more references to a value system.”
Going through the archives on this site, I realised that as I post less doesn’t really make much sense not to output the year on posts. With some archive pages spanning several years. So now it’s possible to see directly how little I post on this site, like a blogging version of wayback machine. Yay.
It’s at times like these that I am very happy I declare copyright notices on the sites I manage using the php method for echoing the year.
Saves a lot of time and panic after noticing a site you built years ago looks somewhat out of date.
