Welcome to the new website. It's been a long time coming. Well, actually, more of a short time, since I just thought I'd redo it on a whim last Thursday. For those of you in the internet blogging world, it's based in Weebly. I did brief experiments with other website providers and this seemed to be the cheapest and provided most of the things I thought I would use(music player, video player, etc.). Also, it's designed for people who hate coding.
Yes, I do still code. But, I hate it and to be honest, I was never really good at it. Plus, there are better things to do with my time like practicing, writing music and catching up on all those nifty television series that are on cable. So, although I had to fight the temptation to fool around with the CSS to make my Google based calendar match the color of the website, I constructed this without any hands on coding. I'll probably tweak it when I get irritated by something.
What really sold me on the whole new website thing was viewing some friend's websites from my Iphone.
Apparently, about 20% of people accessing websites today are doing it by mobile phone. Weebly had a pretty cool way of handling that. So, if your viewing this website from your phone, you can actually see and access the content fairly easily. If you ever saw my old website, you know that it was tough to look at through a normal browser. It was impossible to view with a smart phone. I'll torch the old site later this week.
I've started fairly sparse, I didn't want any huge photo or video pages. I'm of the opinion people really only look at your site to see where/when your playing and to play(and hopefully buy) your music. So, if there is anything you want me to add or think I should change to make it easier and interesting to access, let me know.
