New Host & Future Re-Design

Just a small update to notify visitors that I have a new host, and to ask a few questions about the future of akamike. Oh, and a bonus idea for next year!

New Host

I am now hosted by HostGator, using their shared "Baby Croc" plan. Both akamike and The Art of Valixy should be up and running, there may be a few issues (I know that my portfolio is down, currently fixing it up a little) but nothing major. Oh, and just for the record, I use Namecheap for the domains.


The redesign will feature a visual face lift, as well as some technical enhancements. A few things to be expected:

I have a few more ideas that I am still playing about with, but if you have any of your own please comment and let me know. Even if you feel its a little odd, it might spark up some discussion that leads to a cool addition :)

Cooking Blog

Finally, a little note that I am looking to start a cooking blog at the beginning of the new year (2008). I'm getting into cooking more and would like to branch out from akamike with a separate cooking blog. Ideas for this would be welcome, so far I can think of posting up meal/recipe ideas, restaurant reviews and (if it gets popular enough) interviews with big names in the food industry! This will be accompanied by ideas for drinks, and a photoblog to show of creations of contributors and readers alike.

That's about it for now. I urge readers to comment with their thoughts, even if it's an idea on what would make you comment more without having me beg! Oh, how I joke (but please, still comment....I'm lonely......).



The followME thing sounds nice. Maybe I should do something similar myself. :)

As for the cooking blog, it sounds awesome. If you ever need a contributor, feel free to contact me. I'm not the greatest cook, and I'm still learning but it's something I've always been interested in (cooking blog).


Thanks Nyssa. It's still at the "picking a name" stage, but I'll keep you updated :)
