Ok, I have been talking about some site changes for The Blogcast Repository for a while now. However, for those who have asked, I have been providing links to the new test site. I have been working after hours and doing what I can (in my limited knowledge of web site design) to get things finished. I don't have the funds to hire someone (as always)! I just noticed that there were 23 people viewing the site.. so much for silence.... So, if you are interested in the future path of The Blogcast Repository, check it out. Maybe it's a good thing that people see it before it's finished so you can give me ideas. It's become my passion and your site, so your opinions should count right? Here are some of the improvements in my design phase...
1. A dynamic web page that will pick up on all blogcasts posted to the internet. This makes the site a “one stop see all” when it comes to free videos on MSFT products. Not available yet, but soon! That I will pay for!
2. Blogs for anyone who does not have one yet and is interested in MSFT technology... I have 44 different blog theme options to choose from! Yea baby!
3. Forums to discuss technology related to the blogcasts.
4. For those who register, feel free to post your family, business and technical pictures in the gallery (none of that adult stuff Rod! LOL)
The site is STILL under development and not ready to register people for production use (although functional), but feel free to check it out and of course let me know if ya like it or feel I should add something. I will yet everyone know when the final go live date is. In my book, when I finish it, I will post it here, call it a day and see what happens. :)
There are only a few people doing videos like this on a free basis and I think it will still require a bit of time before things really pick up. I would of course really apreciate it if the myITforum members support the site. The forums are not a replacement for the myTforum forums, but a place where people can comment on the videos and ask questions in a single location.
It should be fun! The current site is static without interaction and in my opinion that sucks. The new site is built on Community Server and the next version (2.0) has provisions for video files which can be seen at The Hive. I'm not as fast on some levels at Microsoft and don't have deep pockets for development. Man that sucks!
So, here is is (in development)! let me know what you think! firstname.lastname@example.org
THE NEW SITE! Not all video links work yet, I am showing this for it's future potential. I still need to setup the nav structure as well. What is it with me and dark website colors???
