Freddie P Is Getting A New Blog

mouseFred Patterson, or Freddie P as he's often called, was/is one half of the Humble & Fred radio show. He's been maintaining torontomike.com with a site building tool called SiteStudio and he's been leaving blog-like entries on his page on a daily basis. Every once in a while, he deletes the older entries, which has always irked me.

This weekend, I've been working on Freddie P's new blog. I helped him buy a new hosting package, I installed and configured Movable Type for him and now I'm working on the design of his new site. We spoke on the phone last night and he asked that a number of elements from his current site be brought over. To make Fred (and his wife) happy, I've mimicked the old font style, brought back his triangle menu icons and kept his colour pattern. As soon as he's ready to rock, we'll update the DNS name servers, let propagation take place and Fred will be updating his new blog in Movable Type.

For fans of Fred's rants and raves, this means you'll be able to leave comments, link to entry permalinks, subscribe to his RSS feed, view monthly and category archives and search his site for particular keywords. In other words, it's a real blog which will also please the search engines and will most definitely increase traffic.

If you want to be like Freddie P, let me know. This Movable Type installation and configuration and blog design thing is something I do, ya dig? I'll even teach you how to use this dynamic tool and manage your blog. Contact me if you want to talk about it.

Please!!! I beg you!!! Do whatever you can to convince Freddie to lose the font and the ugly interface design.

Ha!

I got strict orders from Fred to keep the font. He's even keeping the default paragraph font as bold.

He's keeping the colours too - and the triangles as menu options. But, we're losing that splash page!

Freds a good friend of mine and a neighbor at the lake. Hopefully you leave all the old Pics...Especially Britney S. In the words of the immortal Freddie, this site "gotta-da-juice-sa"

Even better, because he can categorize his entries, there will a page for collecting all trailer-related entries.

And of course Britney stays...
