It’s been a long time in the making, and the revamped HenCam is finally up. There’s a charming new facade and a cheerful logo. Behind the good looks there has been a major reorganization. A priority in the redesign was to improve navigation. The homepage has sidebars so you can see what’s new and interesting at HenCam. There is an obvious, expandable page for FAQs. The FAQ page also has a place for recipes! Events are more clearly listed, and there are pages to explain what my programs are and how to book me.
I’m very excited about adding a second blog, The Vintage Hen! I have a collection of vintage chicken-related objects and ephemera. Now I have a place to share it with you. I’ve also been working on other projects that have led me to do research on our relationship with farm animals. I’m especially interested in women’s work at the turn of the last century. I have photographs that will delight and make you think.
There’s still a lot to do. I’ve already written and posted new FAQs, but I have a list of a dozen more topics that I want to post soon. I now have two blogs to write (one might require me to go to a flea market to be inspired!) Eventually, there will also be a HenCam online store. (Which will sell, among other things, a book I’ve been working on.)
My IT Guy/husband still has lots of glitches to iron out. It’s been crunch-time these last few days. I can’t help with the computer stuff, so I made Rhubarb-Peach Pie yesterday. I’m keeping him fortified! Steve isn’t doing this alone, and there have been two professionals who have worked tirelessly to get HenCam up in it’s new incarnation. Craig, at Edge Design, did the design (and my happy dancing hen logo) and Tim at CodeBrick did the coding. They’re still working (on the west coast, or they’d be eating pie, too.) I’m still writing. Except, right now I have to get outside and weed. Somewhere around 700 people will be touring the property next Friday and Saturday for the Concord Museum Garden Tour. I have a lot to do before they come. Will you be here?
As you can see, I’ve been juggling a lot of projects. I am so fortunate that I have people behind me helping to see them to fruition. I hope that you enjoy what we’ve been up to!
