Christophe from Belgium

Hallo everyone,

My name is Christophe Bouten, and I live in Antwerp, Belgium. I have
recently launched what people would normally define as a personal
website, (sorry, it is in Dutch!). But
actually it's also a weblog, a videoblog, a small community site,
and an intranet. Which shows that integration is perfectly possible,
and that web content management is a broad term that can mean
anything you want. You just have to find the right tools for the
right job…and depending on the message you want to deliver, choose
for words, pictures or even video shots.

I know that it's not the purpose of this group to cover your own
site, but I thought it could be interesting to have a short
introduction on my own practical case. About videoblogging now. On
one section of the site I explain my experiences in buying and
renovating a house. I've indeed recently bought a house in Lier, and
now people can read about it and see small video entries
of what we are doing in the house.

My major goal is to share my experiences about that whole process
with other people. And video offers often much more possibilities to
explain something than words. And of course it is potentially much
more universal, much more multilingual. On my site for instance
people without knowledge of Dutch won't be able to read my texts,
but nevertheless they will understand where we are in the `house
building process' when they look at the video entries. I will be
glad to share my experiences with videoblogs in this group. Regards
