Welcome to Watches.net. First, an introduction. My name is Calvin Stewart, and over the course of the next few weeks i’ll be building a community of like minded people that appreciate rare, and high quality time peices. By day, I’m a web developer, dealing with some of the most generic domains on the internet, with a focus on accessibility, and clean designs.
Watches.net is a project i’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. I own a really nice little portfolio of very sought after domain names.. I believe they deserve being developed into communities, tools, and various other forms of online media that benefits it’s market.
The Plan for Watches.net
What are we all building here?:
- Watches.net will house a repository of information, such as serial/product number classifications for rare timepieces from the Rolex rage.
- A social networking hub, for enthusiasts to share, document , and gain a greater understanding of their prized posessions.
- To meet friends through the social netwroking section of the site, kindly powered by our friends over at Buddypress.
Ok so watches is our home, but where do we start?
As you can see, I have alot of work ahead of me in the weeks to come. My first job was to create a wordpress theme specifically for you guys. In fact, It turned out so well, that i decided to make it public. This theme is aptly named “Time”, and should be seen as a building block to get you guys started in sharing your watches with the world.
From there you will all be able to create your own profile and choose between a few (but expanding) list of themes.
Whats next for Watches.
Well thats a good question. I work quite rapidly when i have the time, so keep your eyes peeled for some big chunks of awesomeness.
