New website

2009-06-03 00:00

It's never a completely smooth process, and there's always plenty of fine-tuning that has to take place... but thanks to the team at Bluebox, the launch of the new-look Witness website has been a lot more fun than I expected.

The focus of the new site is now a graphic and picture-driven package to, hopefully, make news more accessible and - dare I say it - more entertaining to read.

The classifieds page ... *gulp* ... has been redesigned and is hopefully more user-friendly. That flippin page has given me sleepless nights, and I have aged 10 years from all the phonecalls. I now have a walking cane, have weekly regular visits to a shrink and drink whiskey for breakfast.

Okay it's not that bad... I don't see a shrink.

In the end, here's the lesson: people want to know who gave birth, who died, who got hitched...

Simple really.

Anyway, till next the time.
