If you’re reading this, I’ve successfully rolled out the new and improved Television Obscurities, which I’ve been working on for the past three or four months. As if so often the case, it took me much longer than anticipated. My original goal when I decided to redesign the website was to find a professional (and free) layout that wouldn’t require me to constantly troubleshoot issues. I’d hoped to simply switch to the new layout. That’s before I realized how much altering it needed to fit my vision for the website.
It’s not perfect but it’s as close as I’m going to get, unless I hire a professional to design a custom layout from scratch.
I’ve tested the new layout as best I can and haven’t seen any significant problems. There was an issue with the logo that I think I’ve fixed. You may have to refresh your browser a few times or even clear your browser cache. Please let me know if you come across any broken links, missing images, or error pages. And if you have any general feedback or comments about the new look for Television Obscurities, I’d love to hear them.
Finally, if you’ve sent me an e-mail at any point during the past few months, I apologize for the lengthy delay in responding. I’ve spent most of my free time working on this redesign. Next week will be devoted to catching up on e-mails. There are also a few blogs posts I need to write. Once they’re done, I’m going to take a week or two off to rejuvenate and then dive back in.
There is still work to be done behind-the-scenes cleaning up old blog posts. My next big project will be starting a Television Obscurities channel on YouTube. Also, my long overdue guide to short-lived and forgotten TV shows on streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime should be completed by July.
Later this summer, look for similar guides to short-lived and forgotten TV shows available on DVD and currently airing on television. And coming in September is another edition of A Year in TV Guide, this one focusing on the 1988-1989 TV season.
