I’ve spent the last couple of days searching a solutions for my dad. He wants a site where he can write about his birds (that’d be the feathered variety!), so I’ve reccomended him BlogJet and and WordPress to fill his remit of “it must be stupid-proof”.
Since deciding on the platform, I’ve set about customising Kubrick into something he likes. Which is quite an ordeal, because he doesn’t know what he likes, just what he doesn’t like. When I finally thought I’d satisfied him, he changed his mind, so I changed what I did and he countered by changing his mind.
While writing this post he’s completely changed his mind again and now wants something totally different and kinda amateurish…I’ve learnt something from this by experience as well as being told it at uni – get specifications, get them signed and penalise alterations.
