How It All Came Together

I wanted to put this project together for a while now and it had been on the back burner for some time. The only thing that kept me from doing it sooner was the lack of knowledge and skill at web designing. I had a lot of free time during this past off season to take the time and learned how to put a website together. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is not a happening place during the winter and many businesses reduce their hours of operations. So the work schedule for myself is light so hence the extra free time to learn web design.

I’m a trial and error kind of guy where the best way for me to learn something is just do it and learn from my mistakes quickly. So during the free time, I took the task of learning how to video edit and web design (html, javascript, and css). Using Dreamweaver CS5 and Premiere Pro CS5 made my life easier when putting it all together. Nothing gets the job done better than these two software programs. I’m not getting paid for this plug.

The one thing that took me the longest to put together on the website, was the locations page.  The location pages are composed of maps of 48 states with the best places to visit on them. It took roughly 2 months(2hrs/day) to plot the 1020 location points. The map used Google API with javascript coding and even the slightest error results in no map showing. So extra care had to go into coding the maps. I had a few moments where the mistakes cost me a few hours of cussing to find the answer.

So as the website grows, the look of it will improve over time.
