I’ve been pretty busy this week, coz you know I’m very rarely busy, amd that’s my excuse for not writing as much the last couple of days.
Work has me building a web shop for them, and tomorrow we launch. Talk about a quick development time. At this point in time it is pretty locked down in terms of functionality, all the credit cards processing things are sorted and now it’s almost time to start creating products. There’s still a few more CSS tweaks to be done, and I think I’ll do some tweaking on our normal website so that the two designs look like they are one site. oh, and I still need to sort out the SSL Certificate, must do that urgently!
In other news I’ve got another recipe going live today, Garlic King Prawns. mmmmm that was so good when I made it last weekend. And hopefully I get time to edit and upload my photos from the Vietnamese Stuffed Chicken Wings I made on Sunday, they were so so good as well. mmmmm.
What else, what else…
Oh, I’m thinking of some tweaks to the design of this blog, again. I’ve been analyzing the traffic I get here and it’s very easy to see that a majority of the people who arrive here are coming from Google, and most of those people are searching for my recipes. On average this is equating to about 200 uniques visits a day, but a lot of it is bouncing straight away. I’ve tried using landing pages and what not but haven’t found them to be that effective.
So now I’m thinking of using a ‘feature content’ scroller along the lines of what I use on I’m With The Band, and Cool & Stuff, to highlight the recipes no matter where you are on the blog. Ideally the design tweak will still be very minimalist, but maybe not as stripped back as this website currently it. Nothing set in concrete, got to get 4 other client websites finished off before I do anything here.
Kings of Leon pre-sale tickets go on sale in an hour. Cath and I are getting tickets for Melbourne and Newcastle. Looking forward to doing the trip down to Melbourne to see them, same as what we did for Pearl Jam. I might try and get a photo pass for the Newcastle show so that it will be exactly the same as Pearl Jam. That would be awesome.
Umm. I better get back to work, really need to go get that SSL Certificate sorted out and finish up the design of the new SCHILLER Australia web shop.
