Bryce Moore: Personal Website Revised!

Leonardo Da Vinci Mona Lisa Art Print Poster - 24x36 Poster Print by Leonardo da Vinci , 24x36 Fine Art Poster Print by Leonardo da Vinci , 24x36After quite a bit of revision and effort, I’m happy to announce that the new version of my website is up and running. I’ll be adding more to it in the months ahead, but for now, it has all the content my (very) old website had, along with some compiled information on Vodnik–mainly through links to blog entries.

Anyway–now that it’s done, I can turn my attention back to that questionnaire I’m supposed to be filling out for Vodnik, and then it’ll be on to my next round of revisions. Sorry there’s not much of an entry for today. Most of my time has been taken up with putting the final touches on this web revision. I’d appreciate any suggestions you might have. If anything’s confusing or irritating about it, let me know! (And if you happen to like anything, that’s always welcome, too. (-:  )

Check it out.

Happy Monday, all!

Jar Jar Haters are Out of Luck

So I was sitting here looking at my Google Analytics results for my personal website (, and I discovered a number of things:

First of all, my website is the first result when you type “jar jar binks language” into Google. It’s also the first result for “bryce moore” and “albert packard,” which is nice. I’d been like third or fifth before. So no doubt the site is attracting hordes of Jar Jar haters and people stalking Bryce Moores and Albert Packards.

In the nineteen months my website has been on Google Analytics, I’ve had 1,983 visits, and people stay on the site for 54 seconds before getting the heck out of there and going someplace interesting.

Seriously, my web site has gotten woefully out of date. My blog is alive and thriving–the website . . . not so much. Part of this is due to the fact that I get paid to make the library website, and when I get home from working on that all day, I’m not too keen to dive back into more coding in my spare time. The other part is due to the fact that, as I’ve stated multiple times on this blog, I’m lazy. Still, I really ought to get with the program a bit better. The last time I posted something new on there was back in July of 2007, when I was still in Utah. Yeah. Time for updating it.

But I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon, really. I mean, the site’s a mess. I don’t like the look of it–it’s like a six year old with a pack of Crayolas designed it. That means that when I want to get back to it, I’m going to need to totally redo the thing. I’d like to put my photoshop skills to work and come up with something halfway decent. That will all take time, and it’s time I just don’t have right now. At the very least I’d like to put my blog over on the page, then have two presences–one here at LJ and one on my blog. But to do THAT, I’d have to figure out how to do it. And really, I’m far too busy playing bass guitar and whittling loons to have time to do that. Maybe if/when I ever get a book published, then I’ll put more time to the website. Or maybe when the library site is better finished, then I’ll be able to put some creative juices toward that. We’ll see.

In the meantime, all you Jar Jar haters are just going to have to deal with a crappy website. You got a problem with that?


For all you faithful readers out there who have been wondering what in the world I’ve been up to at my job these days, you need wonder no more. I just finished up designing a website for a new “branch” of the university library here in Maine. This entailed crafting a site that would work well with the template the university wants all its websites to have. I did the coding, graphics and layout–pretty much everything on the site, except for most of the copy, which was given to me. It’s been a fun project, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’ve certainly raised Photoshop skills over the past week or so. Check it out and tell me what you think.

In other news, I’ve re-started my rewrite of Ichabod, since it wasn’t quite working for me. I’m happy to say that the restart is going nicely, and I’m much more pleased with the project. Life has been busy, and I don’t get to work on my writing as much as I’d like, but I still get to work on it every day, and I’m making progress, slowly but surely.

Website Update

Today I posted two new pages on my website, both Buttersby related.  The first is the commentary for chapter thirteen, and the second is a deleted scene from Cavern of Babel, back from the first draft of the book.  Good times.

Not much else happening right now.  I’m just enjoying being at home, where the temperature is NOT 93 degrees.  In fact, I think I should make that one of my new life goals.  Never work in a place that’s 93 degrees inside.  Honestly, aren’t there labor laws that enforce that?  There ought to be.


Okay.  After my big post last week about how I was going to persist writing Grumpy Old Vampires even when I didn’t feel like it . . . I’m now putting the project on hiatus.  I’m just no longer enjoying writing it, and I think it comes through in the end products.  I did it for seven weeks straight, though, so that’s something.  I need to reanalyze my website in the near future.  I think that for now, I’m just going to update it once a week every week (with Buttersby commentaries) and then post other pages when I finish them.  My original goal was to get enough stuff onto the site to make it feel like there was quite a bit of stuff on there, and I think I’ve accomplished that.  Now that I’m out of school, I’d like to redesign the site and incorporate more of Shawn’s drawings–using professional artwork and all–and make it look more polished and less like a beginning site.  So I’ll be using the time I was using to update the site to instead work on redesigning it and figuring out Dreamweaver some more.  I’d also like to somehow mirror this blog on my web page, too, just so I have my own record of it, as well.

Anyway–that’s what I’ll be up to.  If any of you are too upset about the loss of new GOV episodes, then . . . you’re just going to have to make it through life somehow without them.  Or, you can email me ideas for new episodes, and I’ll write them.  Anywho–have a happy Monday.
