Meet the Godwins

In my Bookmarks tab is a link to a a website that I've been visiting for the past month or so. The premise is simple enough: a family website with photos and blog that chronicle the expat life of Mr.Godwin, his wife Anita, and his daughter Sidney (who is very cute!) in Kuwait. However, the way the site is designed (by no other than Mr.Godwin himself) is unique and refreshing, especially considering that it is a personal website rather than a commercial one. In other words, it is a labor of love and not profit.

The framework of a flipbook is artfully done and surprisingly easy to navigate. I also like the complimentary background music; it's not as annoying as most background music you find in other websites. Clicking on the Photos tab takes you to my favourite part: The Photo Gallery. Mr. Godwin really shines as a webmaster here. The Gallery is split into different themes and clicking on any of them will lead you to a virtual construct of an actual art gallery (virtual visitors included!). So far, I've found a couple of different ways to explore 'The Gallery', but I would rather you go find out for yourself than take the fun out of it by explaining the process.

Another part of the website worth mentioning is the Godwin's Blog. While the template is not unusual, I believe Mr. Godwin was concentrating more on content than style here. The subtitle: 'Raising The Average Height By At Least Two Inches' is a good indication of how Mr.Godwin views his (and his family's) experiences in Kuwait with wonderful humor. A perfect example is this great post on how he managed to discover his own version of a 'wasta'.

So don't hesitate to go meet the Godwins, they're probably right next door!

McA et all,
Thank you very much for the advert. Our little site is just a very easy way for us to keep the parental figures back in the States up to date on what's going on over here so I still find it amazing that anyone not related to us is reading it. I'll make sure to let Sydney know she's got fans now too - she won't know what to do with herself she'll be so happy!So if you are enjoying the blog or just the pix check back often as I try to update both at least once every few days. Thanks again y'all!

I think he didn't like most students except me :D

This thing is almost paper-topic worthy, what with the way he organizes images. Katherine Hayles would be proud.
