The BX Project website has been in existence, in one way or another, for over 15 years. Originally created as a way to share my experiences about my Citroen BX 16Valve, it quickly became a method for me to learn how to present to the internet.
At its peak, the BX Project hosted a PHPBB3 forum with over 1200 impressions a day. Not a huge number by any means, but for such a niche subject, I was quite proud of it. The BX Project has also been host to many other forums and websites including BX16V.com.
The very first iteration of the BX Project was made with Adobe Dreamweaver and included some fancy flash animation. This Blog represents the 21st incarnation. Over the years I’ve used numerous tools and applications to deliver content. As I learned the different website languages I’ve slowly picked up enough confidence to edit code by hand.
Over the years my interests have changed a little, I still have the BX, but my scope for automotive adventures has changed significantly. My interest in automotive electronics has increased, and workshop skills forced to mature to keep my various cars on the road. The possibilities for sharing these adventures with a wider audience has also changed greatly. And so have the range of tools with which to share the BX Project adventures.
The creation of this WordPress based BX Project Blog will hopefully let me share more of my automotive adventures, the things I get up to, and give a better platform to show how I do them. WordPress has grown a lot since my earliest attempts to use it in 2002. It now lets me create and share Blog content faster and more interactively than ever before. It’s going to be a long journey, lets see what happens!
