As mentioned in a post earlier this year, waxramble has been in hiatus status for a bit now. During this last week of vacation time (which ultimately turned into a staycation) I’ve been thinking more about the site and what I want to do with it.
I had the thought of moving everything over to Tumblr and even spent many hours converting posts here to bring over there. The thought with that was that if I’m not going to work on things here, I may as well not pay to host the site. Tumblr’s mobile app also looked appealing, as I could do more of photo posts/micro posts there. The thing with Tumblr though is that in comparison to WordPress the options for everything are so limited.
I was not happy with how the Tumblr site was looking so I have ultimately decided to stick with WordPress here. I’ve spent a lot of time today making site improvements, which include moving all photos in posts to now being hosted in my WordPress media library (no more tinypic/imgur images!), adding a new slideshow function to images (no more Flickr slideshows!) as can be seen in my last post, and other smaller adjustments.
Now that the site is more integrated in WordPress, I can finally start utilizing things like the mobile app. The recent 4.0 update is also making the desktop experience much better as well.
I’m not sure yet what will be coming next for waxramble, but I did just want to post an update to explain that I’m at least thinking about the site more these days! My last post about the record fair last month is probably what content will look like more in the future, in that it will be less sharing what all these other active music blogs share but instead more unique content/personal posts that may be of some interest to those who find themselves on my site somehow. Looking forward to more posts here soon!
