Welcome to the new-and-improved DeArmond.net.
Perhaps, at first glance, you don't see much difference... well, that was part of my goal. The look and feel of the site really hasn't changed much.
There are a few new pages, but the most important new feature that I have added is an expanded photo gallery. I have organized my photography into galleries (and galleries within galleries) so that you can view slideshows of selective subsets of my photography. Also, you'll notice that not every photo has a narrative. I'm glad to have the opportunity to add large collections of photos without having to write an extensive narrative for each one. For example, I added a gallery for our 2005 vacation to Victoria, Canada. That gallery has 82 images. Perhaps, some time in the future, I'll choose to write about one of them, in which case, it'll be published on the home page. Until then, it'll remain only in the gallery.
My hope is that this platform will allow me to easily continue to write interesting stories and post interesting photography. In addition, I hope to add useful features to this site as my time and inclination allows.
One difference you may have already noticed is that my images don't appear in the RSS feeds anymore. This is not necessarily intentional; it just happens to be the way that the software works and I haven't found a way around it yet. I'm still looking for a solution but, if you happen to like it better this way, let me know.
As always, subscribe to my RSS feed and post comments. And click something, will ya? I'm payin' for this stuff.
