Heb Talk is a blog which was launched to encourage discussion of topical issues affecting the Hebrides. The site needed to be easy to read and navigate but also to be visually appealing with a sense of place. We kept the design simple with the emphasis on the article area.
We built the site on the Blogger platform to give simple control of the authoring and commenting of articles, but also to ensure that the site had no recurring maintenance or hosting costs.
Most of the work was cosmetic, ensuring that the Blogger site was as simple and visually appealing as possible within the constraints of the software platform. This demonstrates how much can be done with what is essentially free software and hosting.
