Over the last couple of years social networking has risen dramatically in mainstream popularity. Sites that allow people of similar interests to connect and communicate with each other are nothing new, however, new technology and improvements in internet availability have vastly magnified the impact of social networks.
With the emergence of video, music and picture sharing sites, in conjunction with their comment and contact/friends list features, interactivity is more or less expected in websites. This is especially true if your target audience is the young demographic. Bearing this in mind it is prudent to consider if your site (and ultimately its visitors) would benefit from social networking features.
Not all websites require the same amount of interactivity and it would be ill-advised to add unnecessary features to a site that just detracts from its intended purpose. That said, social networks are here and they are popular, therefore they cannot be ignored.
Some popular social networks include: MySpace, Facebook, and Hi5.
Welcome to the SeizerStyle Designs Blog. Hopefully this blog will allow us to communicate better with our clients and visitors as well as sharing stuff that interests us. We look forward to your comments.
Early this year mentioned some restructuring that we would be performing. We have already organised SeizerStyle Projects and the last thing we need to address is SeizerStyle Music.
This music portal has gathered a good bit of positive feedback and we would like to keep it going. However, to facilitate it's expansion we believe that it is best to move it to it's own domain. This will be done in the first quarter of 2006, most likely before the end of January.
To avoid confusion and prepare for the move we have stopped accepting new membership to the site and have taken off all SeizerStyle references and branding. We have high expectations for the new site and more information will be provided as soon as everything is finalized.
Update: January 21, 2006 (8:00 PM)
It has since been decided to continue with music.seizerstyle.dm as the music portal it is at least until June 2006. This decision was made because there was a hold up in the original plans and it would be better for everybody to keep the site fully functional than in a crippled state.
Today, November 3, 2005, is Dominica’s 27th Independence Day. SeizerStyle Designs wishes every Dominican a happy Independence Day whether you’re in Dominica or abroad.
Independence Day is the last major activity culminating over a month of Independence celebrations. These include numerous cultural shows and events.
So far this year we have seen SeizerStyle Designs expand into new avenues with mixed results. With this expansion we have to consider some restructuring and reorganization. Our focus should be on providing the best services for our customers and clients while keeping our commitment to our various other community efforts. Sometimes the two conflict with each other.
As a result of this interesting challenge we are going to make some changes. We have already highlighted our three main business areas i.e. website designs, graphics design and computer repairs. Now we are going to remove all community endeavours from the SeizerStyle domain and subdomains, gradually. This does not mean that we will not continue to support them, but we will support them in a different capacity.
This shall be done in phases, and in this phase we are changing SeizerStyle Projects from a community based project to an internal repository for SeizerStyle projects. The logic behind this basically is that SeizerStyle Projects has no community. It will serve a better purpose if used for the concentrated development of feasible projects.
More information will be made available at later dates.
All contact forms have been put back up on this site and our subsites. The problem seems to have been resolved by our host, but we will monitor the situation. Thanks for your patience.
In an effort to troubleshoot a recent error on this site and it’s sub sites all scripts will be temporarily removed from this site. All sub-sites will also be temporarily shut down. This is an important part in the process of elimination of causes of the problem. Things should return to normal by Monday September 19, 2005.
SeizerStyle Designs now offers our news via an RSS feed. RSS stands for Really Simple Sydication. It is a means of getting information on the web where you can see updated content without having to go to the webpage. For instance every time a new news item is added the headline will be added to our rss file.
Today, Saturday, 11th June 2006 is exactly one year since seizerstyle.com was officially launched. To commemorate this event we have done some restructuring and expansion.
First of all we have launched two sub sites:
SeizerStyle Projects and SeizerStyle Music at projects.seizerstyle.com and music.seizerstyle.com respectively. This will allow these departments to operate independently and allow www.seizerstyle.com to be more focussed on business and designing.
SeizerStyle Projects is an expansion of the projects we previously hosted at seizerstyle.com. Our vision for these projects has not changed, but this makes us more flexible to deal with different projects.
SeizerStyle Music is an area where we showcase “underground” artists and give them a place to shine and hone their skills. Everyone is welcome to check it out, and if you are an artist/lyricist/producer it may be the spot for you.
We expect big things to happen with our new initiatives as we push to display the diversity of SeizerStyle Designs.
