Here’s a piece of advice.  Never say to yourself on a Saturday morning, well, I think I’m just going to completely re-do the old web site over the weekend.  Dumb idea, but this is where I am so far. 

Consider it a work in progress and pass along any suggestions you might have.  Right now, the site is still a hybrid.  The only other page in WordPress right now is the Calendar page but for some reason, I was not able to import the old posts from Blogger properly so that’s a mess.  (Notice to Jeff H. and David T., I will be needing some technical assistance in getting the CD Reviews page and, especially, the Composers Forum imported to WP.  There is a way to keep the Haloscan quotes but it’s beyond my technical range.)  

I’ve wanted to switch from Blogger to WordPress for a long time now because it’s a lot neater piece of blogging software that has a lot of features that allow us to take advantage of the new “social” folksonomy software that’s out there.  And it looks a lot more professional and is easier to manage.

Over the next few days, I’ll be sending all of you who contribute an e-mail with your new password so you can post start posting.  I hope we can get everything up and functioning right this week.

Keep your fingers crossed.

  5. Scott Unrein says:

    Very nice. Perhaps update the “contents” buttons so that they better match the cool new look?

    dude, this is sweet. nice work, jerry. i, too, am a recent convert to wordpress and laughing squid (who help out nonsense-nyc – a really great list of alternevents around these parts). yay yay yay yay yay!

  7. You are a glutton for punishment, Jerry. But you’re off to a good start here — I hope things continue to go well.

    I’m sure this is on your list of things to do, but you need a list of composer blogs somewhere on this page: right now, it is only possible to access the latest update on an individual blog, and then only if it’s one of the last six updates overall.
