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.

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.
