The New Texbrick.com is Coming

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

I’m currently working on a complete redesign of Texbrick.com. I started this site nearly 8 years ago and did not anticipate or plan for growth. It’s become a tangled mess of files, photos, and broken links.

The new site will be clean and consistent in format. It will also allow me to add updates much more easily than the old site.



All the old content will make it to the new site. But I’m revising, and in some cases re-writing, the model pages. And, there will also be a few new models ;-)



The “articles” section will be a new, revised form of my old “ideas” section. And, as mentioned previously, this blog will serve to host new ideas that I develop.

I don’t have a target date for completion. I just work on it when I can. Currently, I’m probably 70 – 80 percent done. I’m hoping that I can get the new site rolled out by the end of this month, but I’m not too sure. We’ll see…

It Begins…

Welcome to the new Texbrick.com blog! Another blog about LEGO? :-) Well, it’s not just another blog, it’s MY blog.

Seriously, this will be an easy and organized way of announcing and sharing updates. It will also be an outlet to share building ideas in a neat and categorized manner. (After all, nothing appeals more to a slightly obsessive-compulsive LEGO-file than a system of categories and compartmentalization! :-) )

I’ve not uploaded much of anything to my site in a long while. Again, I’ll offer up the excuse that my photography and my family life (got two kiddos now!) eat into my LEGO-time :-)

I’m still building when I can. My older son enjoys this “LEGO-time” with me and either builds something of his own or jumps in front of me and demands to use (steal) whatever I’m working with. But we always have a good time.

Sit tight and stay tuned. A lot of new stuff is on the way! :-)
