This blog is about technology. Written in language that is hopefully easily understood by the non technically inclined, as well as those for whom technology is ‘mothers milk’.
The author, Mike Otgaar, is the owner of Graphicline Web Management and DTP in South Africa.
The character of GraphiclineWeb has changed!
When I first created this blog, it was intended as:
“Graphicline’s news and information service for clients, prospective customers, followers and anyone with an interest in web design and technology.
NEWS is where we provide information on our activities and projects,
NEWS is updated regularly and continually.
TECH NOTES is not intended as a web designers resource (There are already thousands of such online reference sources), rather a plain language reference library of primary benefit to clients and other web users. With this goal in mind, we will try to keep terminology references in ‘plain language’ and where the use of tech-terms is necessary, will attempt to provide an explanation of these descriptions. (or a link to an explanation!)
We hope to give our existing, and prospective clients, a tool by which they can gain a better understanding of how their websites work, and what they can do with them.”
Changing for the future:
Regular readers may have noticed a change in the manner we present content in this blog. The more recent articles have been written from an increasingly personal perspective. Since restructuring graphicline.co.za using a content management system, several of the functions previously not easily available with the static type site that existed, are now ‘built-in’ to graphicline.co.za.
From now, content intended mainly for customers will be placed in articles and pages on our home site. This does not mean I be ceasing to write for this blog. Just the opposite! Now that GraphiclineWeb is no longer the remit of a primary business orientated ‘news service’ the door has been opened for me to expand the range of material offered.
GraphiclineWeb will remain a WordPress.com blog
It will also remain hosted by wordpress.com! It was myoriginal intention to use the blog to explore WordPress as a CMS system, and eventually to re-locate the blog to the domain ‘graphicline.co.za’. The increasing popularity of GraphiclineWeb on wordpress.com has been surprising. Views are at an all time high.We seem to have attracted regular readers, who appear to be enjoying the content. So the blog will stay where it is, for now, and into the future. (And one of the reasons is the great blogging community using wordpress.com)
There will no doubt be a degree of crossover information appearing on this blog, as well as on graphicline.co.za, and some of the existing articles will be used on the company website, while some of the articles which will be included on the site, will be re-written for the blog.
