NOTE: Just a quick update-WingSideUp.com is BACK online thanks to Lou Anne McKeefery of www.be-found.net. We will however continue with this site as we work to figure out what the issues were/are. SOOOOO…..you’ll see some tweaking here and there(including the new masthead and background by Kevin Timmons of BreezeGraphics.com), as we use this as a test bed for the main site. Leave a comment and let us know what you think! BG 02.08.13 12:00pm
With the main, self-hosted site still down, we have gone back to working on the WordPress.com hosted site. This site will be very lean and mean, focusing just on news and as a place to host Wailing with Wing Side Up. There are still no answers as to why the site went down, but it seems to point to an update meaning that it doesn’t seem to be an issue with the server nor do we believe it was hacked, although the later is still not ruled out.
Either way, and for whatever reason it’s down, it’s been a real pain trying to figure out how to get it back up. SOOOO, we are looking at this as a positive to re-evaluate the site layout, colors, and basically use it as an inspiration to get off the can and work to tie up some nagging design backlog.
One of the main goals is to make it easier on the eyes and a little bit brighter. We also want to make it easier to navigate, while working out some of the nesting of categories, posts, and pages. Those are lofty goals, and there are no promises being made, but there are really just some things that need to be done.
Please bear with us through this complicated issue, and please use this opportunity to express what YOU would like to see on WingSideUp.com and how it can be made into a better experience for YOU.
