Well, that was surprising! One of the things I’ve always struggled with in my professional web presence is the whole saying-nice-things-about-myself thing. The way this manifested itself in previous versions of my website was that while I used first-person language to talk about the future—“I look forward to working with you” and the like—I invariably discovered I’d used third-person language in talking about my accomplishments. (“David was named #1 Music Teacher in Harrisburg for 2015 by Thumbtack users!”)
Anyhoo. Curious how others felt about it, I posted the question on Facebook:
The results were nearly unanimous: first-person it is!
Won’t my therapist be thrilled when she learns folks expect me to say nice things about myself using my own voice! (Damn, I hate when she’s right.…) 😉
Wow. I have had a tremendously productive day today at polishing up and unifying the various parts of the new website into something close to a unified whole. I can hardly wait to share it with the world!
I have a photo shoot scheduled for November 15—three weeks from now—which I hope will provide some great new images for the site. If I can find the patience not to go live before then….
After much searching, trial, and frustration, I think I’ve located a plugin that will allow me to manage my entire online store here on my site! (Fingers crossed…)
If all goes well, this will mean I won’t need to redirect customers to Payloadz to access their downloadable files—everything will happen right here at davidmglasgow.com!
Stay tuned. If all goes well, there’ll be a brand-spanking-new “Shop” tab in the main menu very soon!
Whew! I’d forgotten how much content was involved in my website before I started converting it all to this new format. This weekend I hope to have time to finish updating the online catalog and lyrics database; after that’s done I think we’ll be ready to go live!
Of course, “ready to go live” is a mystical beast that exists only in one’s imagination; Murphy’s Law of Web Publishing requires I find that I’ve misspelled my name in the title bar or something equally ridiculous as soon as I’ve published the link….
Ah, the joys of solo entrepreneurship!
Welcome to the new davidmglasgow.com—now a single unified responsive-design site that should look (and function) equally well on desktop and mobile devices alike!
I hope you’re as thrilled as I am with the new design of the site, and that you’re able to find what you’re looking for. If you have any trouble at all, please don’t hesitate to jump straight to the Contact tab and zap me a note. I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction!
