Welcome to the all-new homepage of hypnosic.com!
You may notice one or two massive changes to the old homepage. The first thing that's probably hit you square between the eyes is this is no longer a cumbersome blog, but has reverted once more to a static homepage!
The rest of the blog posts are still there and you can find all your favourite pages via the navigation strip across the top of this page or the list or blog articles down the sidebar on the right. Those other pages have changed a bit in layout and there's a nice new header graphic, but the content is still the same.
As far as this homepage being a static page again is concerned, you may be wondering why?
So what is this website here for and what is its purpose?
Well, hypnosis is a pretty fascinating subject and one that a lot of people are still largely wary of thanks to long term arguments about its validity as a therapeutic aid and its misuse by stage hypnotists. As you read through the articles published on this website, written by a qualified and long term expert hypnotherapist of 20 years standing, the hope is that you will gain a better understanding of what its all about and how it can and is being used for good in helping people to overcome personal issues where other more conventional methods may have failed.
When we changed from a static site to a blog back in 2007, it made sense from an "ease of updating" point of view because Wordpress made things very easy. However, over the years, Wordpress has become larger and more bloated with plugins for this and that and it loads more slowly. plus is a constant headache keeping spammers and hackers out. Add to that the annoying habit Wordpress has lately of bringing out constant updates and it started to become more work to manage than the old static model.
So while a static homepage may not do a whole lot, it is far easier to maintain, sitting here and welcoming you to the site and never really needing to change very much at all. While the supporters of the blog model will say that it makes for a more interesting browsing experience, its only real benefit from a webmaster's standpoint is that its slightly easier to upload new articles. From a user standpoint it enables interaction through the comment system, but this gets so badly abused by spammers it detracts from its benefits and creates a lot of extra unnecessary work.
Well, that's all I have time for in this welcome post, so welcome to HYPNOSIC.COM and I hope you enjoy browsing around our other pages for articles, resources and that popular stopping point, the "phobias" page, with it's massive list of just about every phobia you can think of... and some! By the way, if you know the name of a phobia that's not listed there, be sure to email us here and we'll add it to the list if it checks out!
Thanks for stopping by!
