What is a Wireframe? - Part 1

What is a wireframe?

Basically, a wireframe is an architectural representation of a website before it is actually produced. It allows you to define the information hierarchy of your design, making it easier for you to plan the layout according to how you want your user to process the information. Wireframing is a very good practice, so if you haven't done it yet, there's no better time to start. 

Initial wireframe for Scream Media site:

Just like you need to see the two dimensional drawings of house before you can understand the layout, thus is the purpose of a wireframe. Similarly for a screen design, you can't start building pixel layers in Photoshop, or writing blocks of code, without knowing where the information is going to go.
