An alternative site is under consideration. I have begun preparing it but I still have a few concerns. The prompt to move is that this site on blogger seems to have outgrown my programming abilities and looks really untidy and hard to navigate which a few readers and contributors have mentioned.
As I have no intention of paying for a registered domain at the minute because this site already takes up too much of my time and money for zero and I mean zero financial return.
I considered moving the site to civiblog but the bandwidth allowance is very little. In fact most months, after only a few days, the site is no longer available. So moving the site there is out of the question.
I am now experimenting with a move to wordpress, in order to test the usability I will continue to cross post all contributors work until we make the decision to shift. Major problems that I have already encountered include but are not limited to embedding youtube and google as well as entering html and java enabled links to sidebars etc.
On the plus side it looks much cleaner and feels a lot easier to navigate with the added pages.
Let me know what you think...
