Major site merge/front page overhaul
A few significant changes are currently in progress with the site. I am merging the stormscenes.com footage archive into this domain, making it a 'subsidiary' of Storm Highway rather than a stand-alone entity. This is similar to the move/merge I did with the photo gallery a while ago from wvimages.com to here. The primary reasons are that 1.) stormhighway.com is the most established site of all of my domains and has a better "reputation" on the web in general, and 2.) having everything on one domain means I can share scripts, databases and SSI/PHP includes across all sections easily. I am also dropping, for the most part, the "business feel" of my photo and video endeavors, taking a more casual "personal ownership" type approach which seems more acceptable today (and more comfortable for me personally).
I have also started ramping up the photography focus of the site in terms of overall emphasis, particularly for the new St. Louis section which I've put considerable effort into for the past 18 months.
The main changes have to do with the front page layout and the addition of the stock footage section to the main navigation menus. All in all, just trying some new approaches to keep things going in this rough economy of ours. As the old saying goes, you can't expect different results if you always do things the same way.
