New look for 2015!
You will notice that my blog has a new look for 2015! I am not quite happy with it yet, but will play around over the coming weeks to fine tune it a little! I will also be working on my main website. I built the site about 4 years ago when I started my WildlifeKate venture and it was built using Flash. Flash works well on PCs but, if you have tried to look at my website on a mobile device such as an iPad, you will know it does not work well. The way forward is building the site with what is known as HTML5. I have too much flash-dependant functionality on my main site to simply switch it over, as everything would jiggle about and look awful! For this reason, I have decided to start building a new website! It is probably about due as there is lots of content on the old one that is rather old or hidden and it could all do with a revamp and a refresh. This is rather a large undertaking, so I will be building it in the background over the next few months, with the view to then swapping over when I feel it is ready to go live! All very exciting…. but VERY time consuming!
I can’t believe 2014 has passed and we face another new, exciting year ahead! I have had a wonderful 2014, with SO many exciting events and appearances, including filming for a series which will be shown this Spring….. can’t say much more than that at the moment!
