What is Fjordscene – and how did it originate?
fjordscene.com is a website that was first launched in 2011 as a pet project of the poet K-M Skalkenæs (why, hello!), who previously went by the pseudonyms of ‘K. Llewellyn’ and ‘Evan’.
Back then, fjordscene.com was a simple blog site on a hosted platform, offering limited options in terms of layout and categorizing content.
It worked back then as an easy way to publish my poetry without having the technical knowledge I do today. However, the bulk of my production grew tremenduously in size over a very short period of time, and eventually the old site just didn’t meet my requirements any longer.
For instance; it soon proved impractical to not be able to properly search or filter poems. Both for the users, and certainly for me when I went looking for something specific. Therefore, I made the hard decision to close down the previous version of the site in december 2017, in order to develop a new and better one, that could scale with the content.
Therefore, I moved to another hosting provider in March 2018, and started over.
The current version, and future plans
The current version launched the 16th of March 2018 and has been rebuilt from scratch.
At the moment, the focus is on rebuilding Fjordscene, re-branding it, and uploading new and edited versions of all the content. All properly categorized, tagged, and searchable!
Afterwards, translating the site into multiple languages. At least into my native Danish.
Later yet, integrating a shop module enabling me to sell my poetry collections and other written works as eBooks, and later again as ‘Print on Demand’ books.
Lastly, as I am no longer limited in terms of developing the site, I want to showcase and possibly sell my artwork through it as well. But it may take a while before that happens.
As for now; browse the content – see what you can get out of it – enjoy yourselves!
All the best,
