Farewell Old Site. Hello New!
It is with bittersweetness that I say a hearty farewell to my old web site. Mind you, I do not share the bitter part with some friends of mine. For instance, my good friend (and sensational author) Sara Zarr remarked that it looked like I created it on Angelfire in the ’90s. Perhaps it was the heavy use of black. Perhaps it was the copious Kurt Cobain references. I don’t know.
I do know that it was painstaking work for this non-web-designer to figure out how to make the little buttons change colors when one rolled over them. And that coffee ring stain was cutting edge at the time of its creation! I swear!
Nevertheless, I have heard the cries that the site was seen and found wanting. This is my attempt to bring markpett.com into the 21st century. I hope to also interact with some frequency with you, my reader(s). Hence, the blog!
What will this blog be about? That, dear reader, is the adventure on which we are embarking! I have ideas. Lots of ideas. Which ideas I shall see to fruition is the little game of chance I am asking you to join me in playing.
