Change is in the air. Just like life being fluid, responsibilities of this website is a little fluid. As the creator of the website, I have worked to establish a site that that our state Patriot Guard Riders can be proud to share and use. I recently had the opportunity to mentor an collaborate with the New Hampshire Patriot Guard with their new website. They have used our site as a foundation for their new website. Their website continues to evolve. You can see their site here: http://www.nhpatriotguard.org/
After reviewing their website I felt our buttons on our site looked to “cartoonish”. Also, I have been reading many articles that the background image detracts from the main purpose of the site. The goal of any website is to make the information clear, useful, non-eye tiring, and effective get the sites out. The background has a tendency to detract from the message you are trying to convey. I am currently seeking opinions of leadership whether or not to leave the background image up or not. As you can see there is currently not a background image. Our goal is to make our site look as professional as possible. Once a decision as been reached I will share the conclusion.
As you might have noticed some of the buttons on the website have been changed. The goal is to make all buttons consistent with each other. I have a few more to make, but eventually they all will have a consistent appearance – which should also contribute to a more professional appearance.
Finally, I have reached a decision it is time for me to step back into the background in regards to the website. The Social Media Manager has spoken to the Social Media Team. As a team they have stepped up to take over the responsibilities of the website coordination. I will become part of their team and will take guidance from the Team Manager. This change will not be immediately, but in a transitional process. This opportunity has been quite an opportunity for me and I appreciate leadership instilling the faith in myself to get this site up and running. But it now a time for me to fade back into the recesses of the background. Stand-by for further updates and announcement of the final transition.
