As you all have noticed I have not posted much on this blog lately. I can assure you it was not for the lack of topics to write about. In fact I have a long must-do-list sitting next to my computer on the desk. There are two new products on the market I want to introduce to you. Next on the list is a column for the My Stand blog about hunting ethics. The Chief Editor of Red Ash Outdoors Magazine is anxiously waiting for me to submit a feature article on coyote hunting. The list continues with a reminder that it is soon time to send out a questionnaire to my next interview guest. And so the list goes on with topics, news and information that I would like to post on my blog.
So what’s the hold up? Well, I have been working on and off for the last one and half year on my new website “Othmar Vohringer Outdoors”, finally I just couldn’t stand it anymore and decided that the project had to be finished. Sometimes perfectionism can be a hindrance in getting things done and the new website is a perfect example. For months I kept changing and rearranging layouts and graphics only to do it all over again the next time I looked at it. This process was repeated until about two weeks ago when it hit what the website should look like came to me. Of all the places it happened in the shower, I closed my eyes and there it was like a picture.
After a week of hard work I came up with a design and layout that I am happy with. Everything about “Othmar Vohringer Outdoors” says that I care and that I want the visitor to feel welcome in my online “home”. All that now remains to be done is to fill the website with text, so far I have about 60% of the writing done and ready to set it in the pages. “Othmar Vohringer Outdoors” will provide information about my services to the hunting community, such as seminars, consulting, freelance writing and stock photography among others. There will also be a lot of information for hunters and fishers such as how-to-articles, tips, product reviews and much more. There will also be an online-shop where products will be offered for sale that I have personally field tested and given my seal of approval.
Here is a screenshot of the opening page. I hope you like it too!
At this point it might be very appropriate to say a huge thank you to my wife for her patience and providing me with ideas and artistic critique.
