Some of you may have noticed, and some of you may have not, but there have been some changes made to Immortal Music! Its nothing overly major, the content will still be the same, and the layout hasn't changed. Maybe I didn't change that much after all, but I still feel like bringing light to what I did change.
The 'header' image for the entire website has now changed. It previously featured the site's tagline, and a photograph of Michael Vampire, Chris Motionless and Andrew W.K, to go along with the whole 'immortal'/ 'vampire' theme. That header was at the top of the website since September 2012, and frankly a change was needed. Now, its a lot more simple, and really focuses of the website's tagline, "Music is my Religion, Rockstars are my Gods, and Concerts are my Church."
I mostly changed it because I was bored of the original, but I also didn't quite like the fact htat it was verly obviously just something I threw together in Photoshop using pictures I found on Google. That is still sort of the case, I freely admit that, BUT since the main focus is the tagline that I came up with all on my own, I feel less weird about it. What do you guys think?
Other changes I made were to the 'About The Creator' page, and the home page. On the home page, is now a section for fan signs made by you guys! I asked people to make some for the cover picture of the Facebook page in celebration of the page turning four, and decided to include them on the website. One of the girls that submitted some work for me, saw that I threw her art on my website and was tickled to see it. If you'd like to be featured in that section, please feel free to send me something on Facebook! I'd truly love to see it, and display it here on Immortal Music. You don't have to though, I just wanted to throw it out there that I would enjoy it and it will get displayed here. As well as on Facebook, actually. In other words, I'll display it all over Immortal Music and appreciate your art forever!
The About The Creator page still exists, but its now a bit hidden. In its place, is now an about Immortal Music page. Its called the 'Information Lair' for right now, but I might change that if I think of something better. "About Immortal Music" was too far long for the tab. So, I had to change it, and couldn't think of much, so I went with that. I felt like it kind of fit the whole 'theme' of the website. At the same time though, I don't know how I feel about it, so that might change one of these days. I just felt like the information on the home page wasn't enough. I wanted to elaborate on it, and frankly, I really like how it turned out. Which actually surprises me because I wrote most of it at five am after only getting three hours of sleep.
Then you may be wondering -where's the 'About the creator' page? Actually, you probably didn't wonder, you probably didn't even mind that it was gone as its not a big deal. It is actually now linked on the "Information Lair" page. Its at the bottom of the page, in smaller print so you have to keep your eyes peeled for htat. I honestly considered just removing the page all together because this website is not about me at all. However, I kind of like that I do offer some information about myself as a person on the website. Most music journalism publications don't give you any insight to who's putting up the content. That does work for the most part, but with the interaction I try to have between the Facebook page and YouTube, I didn't feel right having no information about myself on the website. So, I actually completely re-wrote the page, and included a lot more music related facts about myself. Such as how I got into music and then interviewing, some of my favorite songs, and song quotes. I also mentioned Remedy X (the band I manage) and linked their Facebook page.
So, hopefully you guys like all the changes! I had planned on also putting up a bunch of content, but did not get the chance to write it all, so the content is coming at the same rate of "Whenever I find the time." I tend to think about posting something constantly, just unfortunately, the time is not even there sometimes.
Please let me know what you think! Thank you for your support and here's to many more years of Immortal Music!
