NJ Nature Notes Blog update, June 9, 2012

In December of 2010, Apple announced that they would be discontinuing their web publishing and site hosting as of the end of June, 2012. Well, the time is coming to make the switch to another platform. For the NJ Nature Notes Blog, this site will likely be it. The format and design are still in flux and this appearance may just be a placeholder. If a more functional and customizable format were decided upon, then changes may be made. For the next several weeks, however, the original blog site will still be in effect.

I have become so dependent on the Apple way of doing things. The application previously used was iWeb, and while not as feature-rich as some high-end applications, it was completely and so easily customizable. WordPress will not offer that capability at this time, but may allow for several features that were not present with the initial iteration of this blog. We’ll see. As happened in the past, this blog will evolve and it should be interesting to see where it goes.

As always, I hope to bring a compelling content and graphically rich experience to this blog.

About rwolfert1

I am a retired Science and Computer Teacher (8 1/2 years at this point), who had the great fortune of developing a passion for all things nature, science and creative at an early age. Birds, space and astronomy, butterflies and moths, dragon- and damselflies, wildflowers, writing, photography, painting and sketching, gardening and carpentry are all on my list of interests. If it’s creative or has to do with nature in almost any aspect, I usually like it and want (sometimes need) to learn more. While my website is far more objective, this blog is my considerably more subjective outlet and allows for combining these interests in a most satisfying way. Additionally, for 11 years, I lectured extensively on Space and Astronomy for several units of the National Park Service, and for regional several environmental centers. My wife is incredibly understanding of my love of (and need for) nature, as well as my need to know things, but has learned to never ask “What’s that?”. She knows the problem is that I will starting digging into whatever initiated the question. (That’s how I got into birding in December of 1978.)
