One of the drawbacks of running your own website, as opposed to simply writing for one, is that you’re in charge of everything. And when, like me, you’re constantly trying to improve the design of your site you can lose focus quickly. And, as much as I hate to admit it, Television Obscurities is just a hobby. And like any hobby, my interest in it comes and goes. Thanks to WordPress I’m confident I can publish new content on a regular basis. There will be Articles, Exhibits, TV’s Lost and Found and the Video Vault, plus whatever else I can whip up.
To help make up for the two months it took me to integrate WordPress, I not only have a new article published (Television Programs in 1941), I also have a new exhibit (TV Guide – Behind the Scenes of the 1964-1965 Season) not to mention a slew of new videos in the Video Vault. Be sure to check out TV’s Lost and Found as well, although there isn’t much there at the moment. Enjoy.
I can’t take all the credit for this latest overhaul of Television Obscurities. The good people at WordPress have done a wonderful job providing helpful documentation that I used a lot. Simple Thought Productions created software that lets me use Jeroen Wijering‘s FLV Media Player without too much trouble. Semiologic’s Subscribe Me plug-in means I don’t have to learn anything about RSS (Real Simple Syndication).
And GARASystem’s Amazonify helps integrate Amazon.com links and advertisements. How great is that?
