A couple of important changes to both the blog and the website to let you know about!
1. New Live365 Widgets! – You’ve probably seen the new Widget on the right side of this blog. This is a brand new feature being made available to Live365 broadcasters like myself. We can now post special codes to our blogs, websites or Facebook pages to let you know exactly what’s playing on our Internet radio stations at this very moment. As you can see, you can easily click on the arrow and listen instantly. It’s an outstanding enhancement that will only bring more listeners to my Internet radio station. Check it out!
2. New Website Upgrades – For the last two months since I’ve been out of work, I’ve been learning about web design on the Internet. With the help of local union, NABET-CWA Local 211, I’ve had access to a website called Lynda.com. This is an online training site that gives students the chance to learn about new skills. I’ve taken advantage of the free training by learning about Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks, Cascading Style Sheets and Search Engine Optimization. Within the next few months, I will be making a complete overhaul of smoothjazzandmore.com. With the new training I’ve received, I will be able to expand the site’s reach. Stay tuned!
3. Discontinuing CD Reviews, New Interviews Coming! – In addition to the new overhaul, I will be discontinuing the review pages on my website. This is not a bad thing. I will still post a special link on past reviews on the new site. Though I won’t continuing my reviews. I will continue to receive CD’s from new artists. Something new that will be happening at the website will be a new “Interview” page. Exclusives with some of the big names in the music industry.
In the meantime, click on the Widget and listen!
