There's a *NEW* In the Works...

As you can very plainly see, the old is NO MORE... there is a new  (and believe it or not,  improved) website in the works, and although it may seem miles away by looking at the site as it is right now, there are BIG plans for the new site! It all started about  4 years ago... back in a time where the old was up, running, and going great. We had news, press, music, a beautiful photo gallery, videos, my own store, a community forum, even AVA GAUDET wallpapers! All was great in the world. Then things came to a screeching halt. I wanted to make a few up-dates, upload new pictures, change up some videos, give the site a facelift... so I emailed my web admistrator/designer, our usual way of getting in touch with each other, to have her make the changes..... nothing. Hmmm, that's weird. Maybe she didn't get my email?  So, I emailed again.... and again... nothing. (repeat this scenario, 3 or 4 hundred times) I called, emailed, found contact information for the company she worked for and emailed them in hopes of getting in touch with her.... and again... nothing.

There was very little I could do to keep my beautiful website updated and current. Soon, it turned into a weird relic of a past life. A LOT of time went by before I made the decision to say good-bye to my gorgeous, yet completely outdated, website in order to do something a little more.... personal.

So here I am. I'm about two days into trying to become a wordpress genius, and this little attempt at a website is what I got so far. Now, you may be thinking, "can't you just hire someone who's good at this to do it for you"? The answer to that question of course, is YES... but I don't want to.

I want to do this on my own. I want to be more hands-on. I want to have COMPLETE control over how I'm being represented on the 'ol interweb. No more relying on anyone else to control my web presence...I'm going to do this myself.

I have some great ideas for what I want for the new site.... And as soon as I figure out how to do it, there will be some fun new stuff to check out here! I'm excited. This is just the start!
