I have now finished the immediate task at hand – the site is all fully functional again. I will be doing a fair bit of updating in the days, weeks, months, etc, to come – adding new sites and content, but that is more fun than work.
The overhaul of Kevin’s Portal is now complete and it has been a massive work. The site has increased in size tenfold plus – and that’s a big plus! I hope the site is even more useful to visitors and a help to those interested in my online activities.
What’s to come now that I have this overhaul in the bag? Well, I will continue to add new social networks and web applications to Kevin’s Portal as I discover and begin to use them. I don’t expect there to be any major changes to the site now for the the foreseeable future – phew!!! I am thinking about some additional content at some point – being mainly a page about the software I use to create my online presence, such as Internet browsers, HTML editor, etc. That is down the track however.
The site overhaul is progressing well – so well in fact that some of it is already live. The amount of time that I have already spent on it I would have thought I’d have made more progress, but the progress made I think is good and so the time well spent. There is so much more to do though – but it is looking good.
Not all of the links in the directory in the left column are working yet. Some are and you’ll be able to get a feel for how the site will look when the overhaul is completed.
Not only is the content that was there before being placed back onto the site, but there is a massive amount of new content being added as well.
I am currently overhauling the site to make it a little more useful. I think it was beginning to become a little too overcrowded and all over the place on the main page (what was the only page). This overhaul will be completed and go live on the 1st June 2011. There will be no further news or updates on this Blog until then – which isn’t too far away. Stay tuned.
I have been adding new content and links to the Portal. These include the following:
A new Doo.gl commenting tab at the left of the site. Simply click on the tab to bring up the commenting wall.
I have added several new links including links to Receivd (for file sharing), Doo.gl (see above), Topickr (for discussions), Open Zine (online magazines), Skype, Tiny Letter (Newsletters), WordPress.com (My preferred Blogging platform), Tumblr (Blogging platform), Posterous (Blogging platform), Plinky (Blogging aid and platform), Survey Legend (surveys) and Splitweet (Multiple Twitter platform).
