I have been blogging since November 2008, thanks to my good friend Pastor Clarence Stowers. He is one of my Soul Shapers. I started using Typepad as my blogging platform and I have enjoyed my relationship with them. However, I decided to move to WordPress because it is more user friendly and has more robust features.
I would like to thank my web/blog designers Chris and Erin of Arcane Palette Creative Design. They spent the last month designing, coding and transferring all my content and images from Typepad to WordPress. I thank God for Chris and Erin’s patience with my changes and additions. The design is hot.
You will immediately notice some changes, with some brand new and exciting features that I think you will love. Here are some of the changes:
1. Exciting new Soul Man design. I wanted the design to have some grunge and swagga. I think they hit the ball out of the park, upper deck.
2. The header banner changes. I was really excited about the way this part of the design turned out. I have three banners – A Soul Story (Personal and ministry testimony), The Heart of my Soul (My family), and Africa (I have a growing love affair with the Continent). If you click on these images, you will be taken to content/narrative about each. I will be adding more pages to this banner.
3. Side panel photos rotate. Every time you refresh the page or go to a new page, you will see a different picture of me, my family or ministry in Africa.
4. I have added some pages that I am really amped about, including Soul Music and Soul Shapers. Soul Music will be a page dedicated to original poetry and spoken word pieces by me and other artists. The Soul Shapers page is dedicated to people and ministries who have shaped my soul in a variety of ways. I will add more to the list and a brief narrative for each as to how they have shaped me.
5. I had Intense Debate installed. Intense Debate is a robust comment plug-in. It will allow for threaded comments, ratings, user profile, etc.
6. I will add advertisement pages to the site. I will only run adds for products or services that I personally use and feel comfortable recommending.
If you need a web designer, who specializes in WordPress, I highly recommend Chris and Erin of Arcane Palette Creative Design.
What do you think of my new home? What do you like about the new design/blog? What don’t you like? I really want to know.
