My computer crashed in November 2016 and just now am able to edit my website. It's an all new experience for me using a touch screen tablet vs a laptop with mouse so please bare with me. It's been a long time and feels good to be back.
I've been busy the last several days adding like / +1 / tweet buttons to certain pages and to new artist additions. Trying to make my website a little more socialable for visitors.
You will see lots of "0's" and very low numbers. Please understand, the pages have been around a few years, but the buttons for only a few days and in some cases a few hours. so if you visit a page with buttons or an artist with buttons, please click one or all to show your approval :)
Also, at the bottom of every page in the footer, I have the buttons. Click those if you like my website and what it is all about. But please be honest about it...don't click if you don't like.
Time to search for the next artist to post while I can still see and have coffee to keep me awake :) later, Roland
Since changing over from a black background to white, I have an enormous task ahead of me. I am working on it in between new postings and looking for amazing talent out there. I have 100's of pages. Berry Trance is now 43 pages and Berry Ladies is up to 51 pages. With 28 different genres and page groups, you can see it will take little ole me a while to hit them all and make them right. I appreciate your patience. Happy New Year to all of you and may 2014 be a banner year. For you and yours, your community, your government, your country, your continent, your planet, your solar system, your galaxy, your universe... your reality. May your God bless you with happiness, love and good health. LOVE IS IN THE AIR - BREATH DEEPLY!
Just changed my website color from black to white. Of course certain colors that look really cool on a black background won't work on a white background such as white or yellow. I have a lot of work ahead of me to complete this change-over, but hell, I've got time. later
I have been working on my website for the last six hours or so. My berrymusicblog is set to display artist additions newest to oldest whereas, my main website is oldest to newest. So, I have been changing my main genre pages to newest to oldest. I also changed the genre page titles by adding the word "Music' to the name, i.e. Berry Trance to Berry Trance music.
This will be noticeably evident to search engines by naming Berry Ladies to Berry Ladies Music. Believe it or not, some had mistaken Berry Ladies for a porno site ;0
And of course by renaming the pages, I had to rename those sites on the traffic exchanges I use to advertise. Quite the ordeal, but my site is my passion therefore, no complaints from me :)
When ahead and did what i have been contemplating for a while now. I got rid of my "funny side". Pages and pages of hilarious pics, vids, jokes and stories. Way too many pages for me to maintain properly. This means I can fully concentrate on my friends and their music...some of the best and most talented singers, musicians, bands, DJ's, producers, composers and lovers of their craft. Damn nice people too :) I am honored that they allow me share their creations. If you haven't encounted it yet, I have my own dreaded 404 error page... you can click this false link to check it out :) http://www.berrymusicblog.com/blah.html
I've had to come up with a new strategy since my domain name change. Most of my pages have links that I need to delete. Most all are affiliate advertising links. All links in the footer on every page are updated and correct, I just need to delete the advertising in the content area of each page. Quite a challenge when you consider all the pages I have on my site. So, what I'm doing now when I want to add a new artist, instead of creating new pages, I go back to existing pages and clean up the page and add the new artist there (two birds with one stone thing).
I'm also playing around with color. Each genre home page will be of a different background color. Weebly showed me how to do that for individual pages with the addition of a little CSS code. Debating on whether to have sub-genre pages the same color as their genre home page. Anyhow, I'm working on it :)
Bought my new domain name for 2 years til May 2015. Unfortunately, my old domain is still active till May 2014.
So, if someone linked using my old domain, instead of being redirected to my new one, they would go to my old one. It's still good and all, but I will no longer be updating it. Fortunately, there was a way to set it up so my old domain redirects to my new one.
Been busy fixing corrupt links due to the change over. Done 100+ so far... whew!
Please bare with me while I fix everything... may take a while... sorry for the inconvenience :)
Well, I've gone ahead and changed my domain.
from BerryRollOnline to BerryMusicBlog. I felt since my main content was music related, I should have the word music in my domain name so people will know my site is about music. Makes sense right?
I've got a lot of changes to make on my website as well as many other places that link to my old domain. It's going to be fun though, because this is my labor of love, my baby :)
An adventure in sight & sound
