Maintaining a Web Site is Kind of a Lot of Work
by Rashard on December 26th, 2013

The launch of went pretty smoothly.  I avoided my typical pitfalls of marathoning the work on a project, being satisfied with it, and releasing it before I’ve taken a day or two to process it with a different state of mind.  I retained step 1 of the process – building the site from conception to final product in a span 26 hours (marathoning), only stopping to sleep and eat French bread pizza.  From there, I sat on it for 2 days.  I only allowed close friends and family to see it in that time before I made it public via Facebook.  I’m pleased with the results and certainly pleased (and flattered) by the reception.  But I think there’s something about this project that I’ve underestimated:
Maintaining the site is an added responsibility.
I just finished a new mashup.  Check it out if you already haven’t.  Now instead of my usual process of making a song/mix and simply uploading it to Mixcloud, iTunes, and Soundcloud, I now have to add it to this site – which means physically changing the site every time I add new music.  I’m fine with this; I just don’t think I fully understood what this entails.  I originally only wanted 5 mixes on a page for the music pages but to do that after adding something new to the top would mean sliding a mix to the next page on every page.  I’ll have to figure out a better system going forward.
All in all, I’m still very proud of my work and I look forward to seeing this endeavor grow.
