Our website is the shit!

At least according to a recent blog post by Joshua Smotherman from Middle Tennessee Music called “3 Things You Can Do Right Now To Significantly Improve Your Band’s Website”, completely unaware we had been featured, until I stumbled across it by accident via Google.

There I was searching for recent backlinks to our site and lo and behold, our new website was the cover image of a blog post. At first I was stuck with a wave of confusion, but after that had subsided after a brief second or two. It certainly made me chuckle. I programmed this thing myself, and being the tortured perfectionist I am, thinking of my somewhat unfinished project being in the spotlight for great band websites gave me a rather ambiguous mixture of pride and honour. Firstly at being praised for my handy work, then slapped with the healthy dose of dismay on behalf of all the visitors that have had to spend time dealing with the litany of bugs, the site is still riddled with. Rest assured I am working on them (I’m looking at you mobile device users).

The post was a great little read. It basically comes down to keep your site simple, don’t over crowd the page. Turn off the auto-play on any music or video players. (a big mistake we made in the past). And thirdly, for feck sake write a frigging blog. Which is exactly what I’m doing now. Anyway to anybody interested in reading the full article, head over to 3 Things You Can Do Right Now To Significantly Improve Your Band’s Website

Stay Awesome!
