AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

Between 2006 and 2009 my blogs were build around the lightweight open source blogging platform Chyrp. Originally created by Alex Suraci I wrote a number of extensions – known as 'modules' – which allowed for extra functionality. Although I now discover that there has been some activity on that platform more recently I have, instead, written my own system, mostly from scratch.

Though, naturally, I'm doing as all good designer-coders do and re-using some of my own old code!
