Splash pages suck!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Recently, a good friend had some questions about a new web design that we’re going to be doing for her site. She actually had a really good idea–good because it was so original that I don’t think I’ve seen another page like it on the internet. When she was explaining the idea, she thought that the site would look good with a splash page that featured an “enter here” link.

So you “blog”, huh?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Okay, I’ve got to get this off my chest: I hate the word blog.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, plenty good has been done in the name of blogging (i.e., WordPress).  And some of the greatest web techniques are chronicled through blogs.  But, I just don’t like the term, and here’s why:  I hate hype.

Just like Lord of the Rings, or the digitally-remastered version of Star Wars, if anything has a lot of hype attached to it, I will instantly–and irrationally–write it off.

So, I guess i’m coming around.  But I still hate the word.
