Major changes are coming to my blog and websites

Greetings everyone!

A few days ago, I realized that I could do a lot more with my WordPress blog……A LOT MORE!

In fact, I came to the realization that I could build my entire transit fansite right here in WordPress, and have all of the pages revolve around my blog! I think it’s pretty cool that WordPress provides so much functionality and customization that the possibilities for my site is really unlimited. Plus, with a new focus area slowly coming to fruition (Hampton Roads, Virginia), I thought that now is the time to plan a total revamp my sites and make an exit from Google Sites. Not that I have a problem with Google Sites, but why should I deal with two totally distinct interfaces? It just makes things more complicated for me.

As many of you know already; in January of 2012, I had to temporarily close my transit fansites to re-focus on finishing my college education. Although I recently re-opened my Europe Transit as Told by HARTride 2012 site, my other two sites on Tampa and New York City remain closed and unfinished. I haven’t been able to take any new photos, or further expand on the content that I really want to expand on. I strongly feel that migrating all of my contents to WordPress will make it easier for me to manage my sites and engage my readers.

I ask you to please be patient, as this will be a process that will be done gradually, in phases. My first phase is to focus on building my focus pages for Hampton Roads, Va, followed by New York City. Then, I will slowly migrate content from my Europe and Tampa Bay focus sites and build up a new cluster of pages from there.

With all of this said, I would like to point out the first significant set of changes to my blog.

  • The Navigation Bar: I have housed the Community Rules section as a sub-section of Legal Stuff. I then updated the Legal Stuff page so that the photo use terms get housed into its own sub-section called Photo Use. I then did the same for the Kudos List. Finally; I made a fourth sub-section called Social Media to outline terms of use as they pertain to my content on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Transit Focus Pages: This will soon be the bread and butter of this blog. Currently, most of my transit content remains on websites that are hosted by Google Sites. During this year, I will slowly be migrating what I have from those sites into these new focus pages. I truly hope to achieve the same effect that I did before while adding in new content to engage my readers.

Please stay tuned for further updates, as I will be making a few more small yet significant additions prior to starting my larger project.

Warmest Regards,

HARTride 2012
