Welcome to the New Site

For those who read my last post on my old blog, we are now up and runing. I think. I hope. There has already been a change from that post as I’ve changed the URL again. On that post I said I would be moving to an old Bootleg Nation site I had created, but after thinking about it I decided to move it to this one (midnightcafe.wordpress.com) as that is more in line with my classic Midnight Cafe theme and I didn’t want to confuse anyone (anymore than you already are.)

So far everything seems to be working well. I am not at all satisfied with the way it looks, but I’m kind of terrible at making a site look like I want, so it will likely suck for a long while. But its the music that counts.

My biggest concern right now is that now that I’m on a free WordPress server I may get into trouble over copyright issues. I have seen many a bootleg blog get deleted over that. I never had that trouble when I was paying for my server, but we’ll see what this new free thing has in store. I will have to remember to keep it all backed up and luckily I should be able to simply redirect the URL to whatever new free blog platform I use each time.

Please do let me know if you are landing correctly and how everything looks.

To me it sounds like it’s definitely an AUD….)
