I spent a hectic three days at the end of last week rebuilding my main website. The old one looked rather dated and was a bit of a nightmare to update. It didn’t perform particularly well SEO wise and was clunky and slow to load. I decided to abandon the use of html and css and transfer the new site to a streamlined wordpress format. I used what data I could from the old site and tried to emphasise my music in the new one, with it heavily drawing from my rather active Soundcloud account. In the new site, photos and videos are available, there is a portfolio section, lots of music, categorised by type (DJ Sets, production, remixes) and genre (house, chillout, drum & bass). I encourage website viewers to participate with me on the social networks, with lots of twitter and facebook boxes and share buttons and also links to the many social networks available. The blog section has allowed me to combine my previous wordpress news blog with my old google blogger one and I might even drag in all the tumblr posts I’ve done too. I plan to post new blogs primarily directly in the site so my other blogs (including this one) are likely to become a bit neglected. Fans of the new website can sign up for updates via email. All in all, I’m satisfied with the work and the new site is looking rather sparkly. I hope you take the time to check it out http://djwezg.com
The Official Wez G app for iphone / ipad and ipod touch is now LIVE and available for free download in the itunes store… http://tinyurl.com/wezgapp The app features all my DJ mixes since the podcasts began in January 2008, also a selection of my better production work. There is a twitter feed, also a WordPress blog newsfeed (where if you have the app you will be reading this article…lol) and a random tumblr feed for miscellaneous items. Also, a photo gallery and a Youtube channel of Wez G related music videos. I hope it keeps you entertained and that you help spread the word of Wez G to your friends by sharing the app… Your feedback as an app enduser on how it can improve will be much appreciated and welcomed.
I have set up this wordpress blog for a number of reasons… Firstly there is a possibility that I will convert the main http://djwezg.com website over to a pure wordpress style layout… So I want to give it a good test. And secondly – I need a unique news feed for the new Wez G Iphone / Ipad app that will be released in mid May. This will be where news and content for the app comes from. There will be lots of other features also. There are also other sites that I use regularly to share information. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Blogger and Podomatic all have their uses in today’s hi-tech digital world. All can be seen plus a lot more on the main website http://djwezg.com I shall endeavour to keep you posted with interesting items from the Perpetual World of Delight that is Shuffle…. Wez G
