Well, the project has been sitting on the back burner for quite awhile now, but I finally have everything in place that is needed in order to relaunch the Personal Development Partners interface!
For anyone who is not familiar with the Personal Development Partners project, it is an online community that allows people to meet up and interact with each other for the purpose of sharing knowledge and experiences so that all members can learn, grow, and accomplish their goals!
The site was originally launched a few months ago using the PHPFox software interface, but within a few weeks it became apparent that PHPFox couldn’t handle all of the functionality and interaction that the members wanted to have with each other, so I took the site down while I looked for another solution.
I have since decided to use the VBulletin Community platform as a baseline, and will be building all of the Personal Development Partners functionality on top of that.
I have been procrastinating the actual development work, however, because I quickly realized that it was going to be a major time expenditure, and I did not want to take that much time away from blogging.
However, the reasons for building a community interface like Personal Development Partners is now stronger than ever, so I have decided to “put down my pen” for about a week, and devote all of my time to finishing the build out of the new interface.
Once completed, everyone will be able to access the site at http://www.personaldevelopmentpartners.com, and the relaunched version will have a ton of functionality that the original version did not.
In order to focus on the technical side of making the new community a very cool and very useful place to learn, share, and interact, I will not be doing any blogging for the rest of this week. I will, however, remain available via email, and I will manage and respond to any comments that come in on posts that are already up on the site.
This will only be a short absence, and I already have a ton of great content planned for this blog in the coming weeks and months, and all of it will be able to be discussed over at the message board portion of the new Personal Development Partners interface.
Your comments and questions about the PDP project are welcome and encouraged via email and/or in the comments section below!
