DUN DUN DUN! Finally, I got this thing working!
As I threatened promised many moons ago, I had planned on getting myself parked in a domain with my own hosting and all that. Glad to say it’s finally here…TalkTyria.net! (again, sorry to a few of you who were getting ping-back spam every time I tried to re-import…)
The site is about 95% up and done… the biggest project I’m tackling right now is editing each entry to fix the images. Between a sloppy import and new, more advanced layout, many images have broken or resized themselves to make babies cry.
But other than that, everything should be golden.
What’s the same!
Pretty much all the old entries about Guild Wars or that had at least 60% Guild Wars talk have been dragged over. Yes, even the stupid screenshot posts from 2006. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, my tags and comments came for the ride, too.
A few things. The main point was splitting off from my main blog, Izziebytes, which I’ll still be updating / working on independently. But I wanted to dedicate a space to Guild Wars. I’ve hyper-organized the categories to make it easier to find specific topics. Ironically I probably have more cats and tags than I do entries at this point, but that will change with time.
One big thing is that I activated a mobile version of the site. Modern inernets dictates that something like 40% of americans have a smartphone or other mobile device to go online with. So that small but much needed addition is worth it.
Lastly I’m working on getting this deal more web 2.0 friendly. So all those feeds and sharing buttons should work out in that area.
A lot. I plan on doing a few video series, more community events / involvements, a little bit of news coverage (in the talk-show reactive style, not reporting. I’ll leave that to GuildMag <3) and a few other secret projects I’m excited about but too tech-retarded to do right away.
There’s a lot more to explore when Guild Wars 2 comes closer, too. Just have to wait and see what comes, right?
All in all at the core this is a blog and will continue to be one. Just hopefully now more fun and fabulousness will be had. Enjoy, and feel free to leave comments / complaints / suggestions or e-mail me at izziebytes[a]gmail.com.
AnitLurk Q&A: So what do you guys think? Comments? Suggestions? Complaints? Rage? Let me know if anything’s broken or looks horrible. I’d love to fix it. XD
