My New Website

Recommended Posts

I put the finishing touches** on my new website last weekend. It's located at http://www.minipalooza.com or Minipalooza.

I hooked the website up to a database that I started a few months ago to index the miniature magazines I was buying. So, if you go to the "Magazine Index" and type something like "flower" in the subject field, it will bring back all of the articles that referenced flowers. I started this database because I was getting frustrated with my memory. I would need instructions for a table and know that I had seen at least 3 patterns, but not remember where.

The NAME site has a great magazine database, but they have so much stuff entered that it blew away my meager magazine library and you can't query on a time period or a particular magazine in that one.

I thought about scanning the articles and adding content to my database, but I'd like to stay away from Cease and Desist orders :D .

Cheers,

Andrea

**websites like dollhouses are never "finished"

I love your website. The picture of your dollhouse really makes it look real by choosing to do it in Sepia.

I also like your magazine index. Thanks so much for sharing. I have bookmarked your page! :angry:

Beautiful work Andrea! You're as skilled in web design as you are in minis. I really like your attention to historical accuracy too. That's a gift to the future.

Your site is great and your houses are beautiful!!! I'm planning to paint my Orchid nearly the same colors you have chosen for your Victorian country house. I also want to make my Orchid look like a real turn-of-the-century house. The historical recreation and accuracy are my main aspects too. Thanks for sharing your work!!!

Yes, I think I could have put children through college on the $ that I've spent at this lovely shop.

I want to thank you all for your comments and encouragement. I get so isolated in my little workroom and its wonderful to know that there are others out there with the same interests.

I added a new database to my website. It is a Miniature Store Directory. There's only one entry in it right now (my local mini store). I've noticed from time-to-time on smallstuff that members will ask about the location of stores. It's my hope that as people come across my website, they will send me information about stores in their area.

I haven't come across a comprehensive store listing. If you know of one, let me know and I won't duplicate their work. If you know of stores you think should be added to the list, please send them to me.

My server host moved locations. He promises I'll be back up by the 14th. I'm crossing my fingers as I know that dates rarely seem to get met when techies like myself are doing these things.

Wish us luck.

Well, my site is back up and running. Its acting a bit quirky right now until they get all of the bugs worked out of the new server.

In the downtime, I re-wrote the site using an updated piece of software. It will change the layout of a lot of things, but not the intent or the feel. At least that is my intention. I will upload the new site tomorrow morning after they've had a chance to iron out some of the server performance issues.

Hope to see you there.
