You might be wondering what happened to all the big plans I wrote about in the 1000th post. Yes, I talked a big game and, yes, so far I’ve delivered nothing. But a few things have been happening.
Firstly, the new theme is on its way. It’s scheduled to go live on the first of March. It’s looking fantastic, so it’s worth the wait. The new theme does demand a whole bunch of new pages so there’ll be a few posts cropping up that will be part of that (thus completely going back on my ‘fewer posts’ plan). Also, the Buy a Ukulele section is going to change its name to ‘Ukulele Review’. There be a ratings system and I’ll be bribing people to leave reviews of their ukes and uke related stuff. As part of this, it struck me I should probably set up a page for every ukulele in existence. I mean, how hard can it be? Turns out very hard. I’ve hired someone to help with this section and it’s still going to take a long time.
The ebooks I mentioned have been put on the back burner for now but there is something new coming along – hopefully next week.
After the feedback, the private forum idea has been abandoned and the tutorial videos were never going to happen. I’d like to be able to do the ukulele-trip thing and I have a concept brewing, now I just have to get over my laziness and social awkwardness. So that about wraps up the plans.
There is a reason why I’m so far behind on my plans. My Dad died on the 30th December. This blog owes a lot to my Dad; from him driving me to guitar lessons when I was a kid to not beating some sense into me when I ditched a steady job in favour writing about the ukulele for a living. So it only seemed right that I arrange a tune in honour of him.
