A Work in Progress, Pt. 3

I am still working on our newest website revision – the theme pages are now completed, and the furniture types are being completed as quickly as possible. The info section and individual galleries fo our painted furniture pieces will follow as time allows. Working within the confines of WordPress is much slower than coding by hand, and this, combined with a six-day work week, has caused the completion date for the site to extend into the early part of 2018. When completed, we hope that the utilization of the blogging platform will advance our ranking for Google, and restore us to the first page of results for our search keywords, which we enjoyed for a number of years before Google apparently sold their souls, and gave our normal ranking to blog sites and single articles that had little or nothing to offer in terms of actual painted furniture.
There are still some key galleries and features yet to come, not the least of which is our contact form, which we will have up and running as soon as possible. So check back often for the latest developments and additions.
Until next time..

A Work In Progress pt 2

We are continuing to rebuild the Reincarnations Painted Furniture website as quickly as possible. Please forgive us for the broken links, as we currently have limited time for web design. More pages will continue to be added until we have galleries of all our completed pieces, as well as Info and Decor sections. Stay tuned – a new site and new artwork are on the way!

A Work in Progress

As you have probably noticed, there are quite a few missing sections and pages on our site. Please bear with us as we rebuild our site. WordPress is a somewhat slower process than straight coding, in my opinion, as the work is all done online, as opposed to coding the pages first and uploading the finished pages remotely. With less time these days for design, the site may take some time to complete, but the end result will be worth it.
Work on our future studio also continues, and we will soon be able to create new works of hand painted furniture goodness.
Until next time…

Website Revision 2017

It has come time (finally) to upgrade our site.  This is mainly an experiment, a change-over to a WordPress-based platform in an attempt to please the Google Search Gods.  It is clear from my study of the ever-changing world of Search Engine Optimization and it’s effects on search results, that the blogging platform was much favored by the search engines.  Thus, rather than attempt to merely skin the blog to look like the rest of the site, I decided to redo the entire site using their framework.

After several months of tinkering with different aspects of the site, such as custom headers, images, and fonts, contact forms, image sliders and style sheets, I have become confident that I can maintain the original functionality and overall look of the site, while also making it more search engine friendly.

Also, I really really like web design, and revising the site on a regular basis allows me to keep learning new things.

I hope everyone likes the finished result.  With any luck, I’ll be able to revise the site in the coming days  (and possibly weeks, considering my work schedule) in such a way that it will look good on multiple devices and browsers, something any web designer worth their salt should be capable.  So visit us often and update those bookmarks!
