January 02, 2018

And again, I have neglected this site for too long. I was working away, back in late 2015, on making a lot of major changes to this site, and then in early 2016, I took some time off to rest, leaving everything here hanging in limbo. I left off with many unfinished pages, and most of the old content no longer available. I had not meant to take this much time away from this site.

One of the changes I was working on, back in late 2015, was removing one of my gallery pages to give it a new home at its one domain. MACJR’S Mini-Verse² never really fit in with the direction I took with this site, macjr.com. The differences in look and feel of a space themed gallery in a garden themed site, just wasn’t working for me. So I bought mini-verse.com and moved MACJR’S Mini-Verse² over there. This was going on at the same time that I was working on redesigning this site.

In November of 2017, I started back to work over at the mini-verse.com site, but I still have not made it back over to finish work over here. I have made a lot of progress over at the Mini-Verse, but there is still much work to do over there before I will be ready to get back over at this site.

When I do get back to work over here, at macjr.com, I plan to convert the XHTML, that I wrote these pages with, over to HTML5. Back in late 2015, HTML5 was still too new, so when I started redesigning this site, I stayed with XHTML, but now that I am getting used to writing pages in HTML5, and HTML5 is far more mainstream these days, it is now time to phase out XHTML, and work exclusively with HTML5.

When I do get back to work over here, I may make some design adjustments. I was being very creative when I wrote these pages, and some elements of this web page design may be a little confusing for some people. I know I had to look at things twice when I came back to take a look at things, after I had been away for a while. Now that I see this site from a fresh perspective, I may want to simplify a few things.

I will be back. I am not sure how long it will take, but I do want to get back here and finish what I started. I still need to finish the Garden Gallery pages, and get started on the other gallery pages, and get more of my work, art, poetry, and prose, back online.
