I’ll be honest. ComedyCaster.com has been designed by someone who’s not a web designer. Me. I’m not even slightly a bit of one. There, I’ve said it (typed it – pedant).
4 months before this site came into existence I knew nothing about html or css, and cared even less. Frankly not much has changed. Some very late nights spent trying to decipher impenetrable code (have you seen that stuff?), 2 months and several migraines later and – ta daa! This. And I’m still not entirely sure how it works.
Why didn’t I get a professional designer you ask? Yes, well, hindsight is a wonderful thing, but at the time I thought there’s no point starting a website and not actually being able to do anything to it without always needing someone else’s help. And so I can now heartily confirm that “steep learning curve” doesn’t just mean driving lessons on mountain roads.
So apologies for bits of the site that don’t work. Or are missing. Or are over-explained, or too orange. Like I said, this is my first ever try, or “Beta” I believe is the phrase used by those in the know. But hopefully with your feedback and suggestions we can build something really useful here, something that could make finding, booking and occasionally chucking some money at comedians and comedy folk a whole lot easier.
If you have any thoughts let me know by filling in the form here . Tell me what you think works, what might work, what really doesn’t, how clever I am considering I’m a complete amateur who never did DT and only got C in art even after actually working quite hard at it etc etc. Don’t get too creative mind, I’m not looking to turn this into a multiblog/iphone app/new social network or anything. Just the most comprehensive, easy-to-use directory of comedy performers and writers in the whole wide world wide web.
Maybe you’d prefer to leave a comment here – it is a blog page after all, just click on the post’s title. Though if it’s too mean I won’t publish it. This is my site and I’m King. Queen. Whatever. And I quite like orange.
