Dhammawitz.com was started about a year ago. A decision needs to be made before the renewal of registration and web-hosting, etc. Should the site stay as status quo or should it make a switch to something more robust? Staying status quo would mean there is hardly a possibility for flexibility, for better interface, functionality and usability for Dhamma seekers. Then again, Dhammawitz is a one-person initiative, one who has little knowledge of web-coding and one who is only familiar with plug and play.
Embarking into a new territory where there is little knowledge requires patience and determination. At times, some familiarity may not be beneficial and can instead, be a hindrance when one makes assumptions, misses a step or decides to take a short cut. And then it’s back to square one or the drawing board.
The desire to create something robust and more holistic for Dhamma seekers far outweighed the uncertainty of the unknown and the lack of skill.
On September 21, the decision was made, let’s revamp Dhammawitz and take it as far as time, effort and resources can allow. There is no short-changing Dhamma and even without the necessary skills, all that is needed is faith – that it can be done and it will be done – and things will fall in place.
The end-goal is not in sight
Focus on the process
Step by step
Let’s get it done.
And it all starts with a new name… dhammawitz.org
