Austin Girl Music Guide, A Site to be Seen
My wife, Virginia, and I love music, so it really worked out well for me when she decided to start a blog devoted to the subject in April of last year. The passion and hard work she dedicates to each and every post benefits any and everyone scouring the web for music news and commentary in Austin, in Texas, and beyond.
In the short amount of time that she’s been posting, the Austin Girl Music Guide has grown from a small, unassuming Blogspot page to a well-trafficked hub of album and concert reviews, musings on music, and information about the live shows going down each week in Austin. V’s expertise on the subject (and her years of working with me on my video projects) even led to our collaboration in covering SXSW 2010 for Docubloggers.
And so with great growth comes great change. As of yesterday, I’ve completed the development and migration of her blog to her own, hosted domain. I’m no expert in this field, but I do enjoy building WordPress blogs/sites, learning the tricks of the trade as I go along.
I used a great free WordPress theme as the foundation (Producer theme for WordPress from Antisocial Media LLC), and built on it with the colors and style of the logo I designed for AGMG a while back. I also whipped up the header banner with the help of a photo I took of my parents’ old record collection that now resides in our office.
At any rate, if you’re into music and looking for a great blog to follow, check out Austin Girl Music Guide (also on Twitter and Facebook). If you’re looking for someone to take a swing at revamping your existing blog, creating some graphics or video for it, or getting you started from the ground up, click on my contact info at the top of the page.
