The Blog Has Moved Here

Filed under: ramblings — @ 1:50 pm Comments (4)

I was intending to do another mass review today but I’m a bit distracted. There’s always been this split in my interest between this blog and the main Cool Noise site. I love being able to post regularly here but I know that bands prefer a review on the main site.

I’ve been playing with WordPress over the past few weeks and it’s really easy to install. It also can import all your posts from a Blogspot blog – although it loses embedded videos and pictures. It has occurred to me that I could move the blog over onto Cool Noise wholesale.

And here I am. Cool Noise is christened A Cool Noise and everything is well with the world.

  1. I think I preferred the blogger site to the main site genarally, it was a lot cleaner.

    That said, at least now you can do what you want without battling blogger’s bizarre markup…

  2. It is a bit busy isn’t it. I shall tweak it over the coming weeks (maybe change fonts and put some blank space in the right hand side.

    The killer bit for me is the search – type a band name in and you get every post that mentions them. I shall post lists of the main reviews as past posts so they can be picked up.

  3. And now it looks pretty much like the old Blogger site. I didn’t mean to do that but I’m not hot on design (I am a demon web programmer on the webserver side though! believe me, people pay me to do that).

    Thanks Daniel. I shall make small changes over the next few weeks as well.

  4. Yeah, I really like it now :-)

    You’ve no doubt seen my attempts at web design, so I’m hardly a critic! Like you, I find the back-end programming a lot easier than all this layout nonsense 😉

    Keep up the good work
