New Website; ReadStories.co.uk

0

I’ve been very busy during my days off between jobs (I start an exciting new Lead Developer role at New Scientist magazine soon!), and decided to create a family friendly online story website, utilising the huge 8,000+ archive I already have created for another website.

This new site; readstories.co.uk uses a modern responsive design, using some javascript frameworks to allow me to create a tiled layout every easily, then plugging in PHP and MySQL code to drive the dynamic functionality.    In just three days I have the basic site complete and live, with over 11,000 web pages online ready for Google to index.  Obviously there aren’t really that many pages, in fact there are probably 10 or so in reality, with the PHP code and database allowing me to generate pages on the fly.

I will extend functionality, and possibly also use the brand to launch Kindle eBooks on Amazon (with agreement from the contributing authors, probably using a revenue share scheme).  But for now just enjoy the 8,000+ stories in many genres, and it’s all SAFE FOR WORK, and the younger reader.

Webmaster of this and many websites over the years. I've been a Senior developer (Java JEE and Oracle DB, specialising in SEAM/JSF/Hibernate web development). Ex Lead Developer at New Scientist magazine, where I worked on creating a new WordPress based website, using almost 100% custom created widgets, plugins and theme. My own projects include websites created in WordPress and custom written with PHP and MySQL, and have my own dedicated linux server to run them from. Currently proud of; Mags Direct - a site I created for my work at the Frontline Group. An online magazine shop, which I created with almost zero budget within a week (since had a full theme upgrade). Found at https://magsdirect.co.uk/ Married, one cat. Beer fanatic (wife probably says bore) - real ales and craft beers. I have spent for too much on home brew gear, I create full mash craft beers. I spend a lot of time either going to gigs or organising them - I'm part of a small bunch of friends putting on DIY Punk shows called "The Scary Clown Presents..." our website can be found here; https://thescaryclownpresents.co.uk/ Also a fan of the local footy team - UP THE POSH!
