Closet Poet

Post by camus » Wed Sep 14, 2016 11:49 pm

So I've finally started getting my poetry site together!

There's a few poems on there now, some with accompanying audio.

I will be adding links to various other sites I've stumbled across, this fine site of course.

Anyhow, may as well put it out there. Have a gander:

Enjoyed, and nice to hear your voice.

I like the modern "big tiles" sort of index, but for me it is better if there is a simple tree or list as well, so I can just page through... I know you have "recent posts" but there's only a few entries in that.

Looking good, however, I like the soviet posterage.

Hi Ian,

Thanks for that. And that's a very good point re the navigation. I think I'll flesh out the main text menu to incorporate different poetry sections. The home page is set to pull in each new post. So in essence it's exactly the same as the poems page, which needs looking at.

But yes I concur.

Cheers

Nice layout. Fun site, Kris.

That hand+pen image reminds me of Soviet era posters.

Thanks Seth, yeah I've got a bit of a Soviet thing going on at the moment, from prints to medals to website design!
