I’m sure by now that all of you who have visited this domain in the past have noticed the new look for The Mind of Game. Well, this has been a long time coming, but I’ve moved off of WordPress.com and on to my own server, hosted by BlueHost.com and I am proud to present the new and improved The Mind of Game homepage. I hope you all like the new look but keep in mind that this site is still in its infancy and there are still many more changes to be made to the front end as I delve further into the multitude of customization options offered by the full version of WordPress.org software (notice the .org there) and the many options I’m afforded by my web host. It’s a bit overwhelming but I have some great literature that will help a great deal in learning the ins and outs of being the administrator of my very own website (thanks to Lafigueroa for that).
With the move from WordPress.com to BlueHost, this site is entirely mine (as long as I’m paying the web host of course) and I have free reign to make massive changes to the backend to improve the layout of the site and how it operates. I’m contemplating creating a few subdomains and maybe even a forum for everyone to chat and give me feedback. We’ll see. On the subject of subdomains, I was thinking about creating separate blogs for gaming, audio gear (headphones, amps, etc.) but I was worried about spreading myself to thin. I am the only content provider for this site and even I have my limits when it comes to writing, especially with school and such taking up some of my free time. I guess time will tell where I go from here in that respect.
I’ve also got a new e-mail address that you can find over on my “Contact Me” page and, of course, right here as well. It is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will certainly be checking that e-mail address constantly so if you need to get in touch with me, that’s probably the best way to do it.
Well, that’s it. I hope you enjoy the new site and check back often. The site is still in its infancy and there are still a few kinks to be worked out but I should have everything up and running smooth as silk within a week or so. I’m not the best programmer/web designer out there but I’m competent enough to handle myself when dealing with minor bugs and the like and I’m a very swift learner so I imagine I’ll be fine if any major problems come up. In terms of content, I have a ton of ideas in mind for new articles in order to further cement The Mind of Game as a premier source for news, previews, reviews and editorials related to gaming, music, audio gear, consumer technology, movies and much, much more. So, with those words I must depart. Keep checking back regularly!
