Website address change

This is just a short announcement to say the domain will be retired soon. The website will continue on though at its new website address...

8 Years and Still Doodling

Doodlelong launched online on 27th November 2006. It has now been over 8 years since my (rather ordinary) first doodle started the collaborative and creative task of doodling the longest doodle in the world.

The website hasn't had much activity in recent times. New doodles occasionally trickle in as visitors stumble upon the link but our regular artists, such as the awesome Brice, have moved on to find other distractions.

All the same, I made a promise to myself (and visitors) that I'd try to keep things ticking over here for as long as possible. That just involved having to migrate Doodlelong onto a new server. It went well and along the way I fixed up a few things, including the Twitter integration which now lets admins tweet doodles with images attached. I'm sure that'll be a boon to all 6 of our followers!

Sometimes it's just fun to do these things, even if no one ever sees them. That has been the story of Doodlelong from the beginning... I never expected it to have the buzz it initially enjoyed. It was just an interesting pet project that could flex my web development skills.

These days I'm focused on mobile apps. I wish I had more time free because I'd love to see Doodlelong on my iPhone (either through Safari or as a native app). Maybe one day.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone.

World Doodle Project

It has been some time since Doodlelong last got my attention but today I got a lovely e-mail from Annette who has enticed me to revisit the site and post this message.

Annette runs a website called the World Doodle Project. Its purpose is to celebrate doodles and doodling creativity. Instead of providing a means to purposely doodle online, like we do here, Annette is trying to capture those doodles that people draw day to day in their natural surroundings. You know, the kind you do when on the phone at work or when day-dreaming unknowingly.

The site has a gallery of doodles submitted by people from different walks of life. There are doodles by doctors, architects, artists and more... demonstrating there's creativity in all of us whether we actively tap into it or not. It'll be interesting to see, as the project's collection expands, whether different professions show patterns of doodling in certain ways.

So if you have any interesting doodles lying around, consider scanning them in and uploading them to the World Doodle Project.

New! Gallery Area

Now you can browse through the 10,000+ doodles of doodlelong and it's FUN!

Let's face it, one doodle at a time along a slow, scrolling frame isn't a winner when you have this many. While it's still important that we exhibit doodlelong as one loong-ass continuous doodle, now there's another way too.

So checkout the new Gallery page which also doubles as a showcase for the prestigious "Highlights" (much better than what-was the fiddly page navigation cramped in the side bar).

Note also that a few other changes to the site have been made. We've dropped the Contacts page, moving its brief details to bottom of the About page. And we've re-labeled the "Home" page to "Doodle!" because it makes a lot more sense (and looks cooler).
