Gnomestead 2012

Welcome to the newest incarnation of “The Gnomestead” or the home page of Darrell Wade Penner. I’m doing things a bit differently this time and going for function rather than form.

My past home-site was a bit more sophisticated in look and feel, and pretty good for its time, but was a bit of work to maintain… one reason why it was a work in progress and didn’t progress much after 2008. I plan on remedying that and incorporating access to my other sites where I exercise my writing and other interests.

I found a theme that I am using that is reminiscent of my previous website design and the previous one is still around… I am working on how I will allow access to it… actually this site is in the back rooms until I have it somewhat constructed — then it will replace index.html on

Now the bigger decisions… do I use the “blog” as the first page or a static page? This post would be on the blog or the first page. Something else on a static page. It would be nice if I could do that random portrait on a static page like I have on my current page… but that is a script… I have a simpler one that I use and perhaps that might work. But it uses relative addressing… and if you are not into HTML and we design that means little to you… I just have to figure a few things to see if it works on this platform.

Until then,



BTW, I am planning on resurecting The Gnome’s Garden and some sort of linkage to Facebook and Google + to make it easy for members of both to jump from hither to yon and yon to hither…

    I think the new layout will replace the old one soon enough. It almost looks ready enough. It just needs a few pages populated. I guess it is time to decide how much of the old site to keep and how much to archive and how much to keep as an active archive.
