Evolution of a web site

by Kade 10. August 2007 22:34
Back in the summer of 2005 when I came up with the idea for Backcountry Secrets, I knew what I wanted the site to look and feel like. However, I was just not able to come up with the graphic design and feel. The site has under gone many minor changes and basically three major changes.

In the beginning we had maybe 30 points and were excited if we got 12 hits in a month. We were extremely excited if anyone joined. Our first non-related member joined nearly a year later in June. At that point we had 4 members. This summer we have had 320 people sign up so far bringing us to a total of 348! There are a total of 257 points submitted. Please keep sharing secrets and help us grow.

The design process has been frustrating and has even felt as though some of the changes were steps in the wrong direction. I think we are finally there. The newest design is a clean, outdoor feeling site and we hope you enjoy it! Be sure to visit our new Amazon.com outdoor gear store. We hope that this newest design will help you navigate the site easier and want to come back more often.

I love sharing the outdoors and that is why Backcountry Secrets is my full-time hobby.

I only wish it was my full-time job.  I hope you have benefited from the information you have found on our site today.
