Pain relief

March 25, 2009

So I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the neglect I show this site. It’s the one and only (reputable) Wolfmother fan site, who I love and admire, and yet I barely find the time to keep it updated. Classic example, Clipsal, the first official Wolfmother full gig in forever, and what have I said about it? Naff all!

After berating myself for being lazy, having too much else going on in my head, wondering if I should just sell the site to someone who would do a better job … I realised the issue. Those damned thumbnails on the old homepage design were a pain point that prevented me from taking the time to type a message. I type fairly fast so it’s not that part – it was simply finding the pictures, resizing and cropping them to the appropriate size, uploading them to the site, adding the links to the WordPress fields to update them … all probably adding 20 minutes per post. Which probably sounds ridiculous, but was enough to make me put it off. And I am the world’s worst procrastinator.

So instead, I have changed the site format to display like a normal blog. It might not be as pretty, it doesn’t have the sexy thumbnail images, the pictures, the video … but I guarantee that it’s a shit load easier to update. This post took me about 3 minutes to write – and if I want to add an image, I just do so easily and quickly.

So the rambling aside, please let me know what you think of this layout and whether you’d rather have more regular updates. I in turn promise to try and make more time to post updates as and when I get them.
