Been doing a bit of work developing a content ecosystem to communicate my practice. Content certainly is king. Had a good chat to Julian ( Colleague @ http://www.mosh.co.nz) about the pros and cons of utlising WordPress to build and maximise the web // blog integration side of things. Definitely all for avoiding re-inventing the wheel when it comes to coding. Julian articulated that WordPress is really the premium choice for establishing a solid springboard for hosting a dynamic array of content. Throughout my extensive deliberations around my personal content ecosystem I have repeatedly arrived at the realisation that I need a springboard type mouldable frame on which to hang a rather diverse array of content. It was great to have this insight validated by someone with a fairly extensive amount of experience in the area.
Over and over in many different contexts I am realising the importance of using a platform as exactly that. A platform. Content is the driver. Platforms are a facilitator.
– Pretty stoked to have found this. Absolutely love James Robinson’s work. Rather interesting that he is quite pervasive on youtube.
One of my favourite local practitioners,Jordan Rondel aka The Caker, chronicles the things she has made each week via a blog post.-http://www.thecakerblog.co.nz/2014/04/things-ive-made-this-week.html
I enjoy the verbatim/simplistic documentary approach of this blogging methodology. Hence I am going to ruthlessly rape and pillage it to use as a structure on my formal blog that I am in the process of starting (@ http://aphoristblog.wordpress.com/). I feel like this weekly blog feature will be a convenient and successful way to marry / link the more process driven elements of this web journal with the distilled/reflective/ “resolved”/accessible tone of the fronting blog.
