If you’ve been paying attention for the past week or so, you’ve noticed some changes. Here is where it’s going: All new content will be published at DBrentMiller.com in new formats. Sojourn Chronicles, which has been primarily my travel related site, will be phased out by March, 2011. Don’t fret, there will be some motorcycle travel stories published along with other content.
Here is the basic format for content of DBrentMiller.com.
The Home page is a static landing page designed to be changed regularly. Blog posts will not change the appearance of this page. Home will feature photography, articles or sound stories and point to other items on the site as new content is added.
This is one of the biggest changes. Rather than posting stories or photography in the Blog, you’ll be getting notes to readers, activities, event coverage and commentary perhaps pointing to other pages on the web site or Internet. This is the only page that scrolls as new content is added—it’s a blog.
Words & Images
Also a big change. Here, you will find published stories of travel or event coverage worthy of a magazine article, because that’s exactly what they will look like—a page right out of a magazine. And, what if you want to read a story on your e-book reader or iPad? Download away. That’s the plan.
Although audio productions are nothing new to my work, they have been an increasing part of the storytelling in the past couple of years. AND, it’s only going to get bigger. Here, you can listen to the interviews, conversations and stories produced specifically for audio or radio consumption. In the future, some of these stories will be available as a download from iTunes so that you can take the stories with you while walking, hiking, biking, motorcycling, or looking for something different on the radio while driving.
Last, but not least, a store where you can buy one of those images that you said should be hanging on a wall. Perhaps your wall? Or, maybe a book?
Whew! That’s a lot of change. BUT WAIT, there’s more. To make sure you get the latest, subscribe to the RSS feed—e-mail by Feedburner—to get these updates in your inbox when they are created. Second, if you haven’t already, sign up for the DBrent Studio News. This opt-in e-letter is sent regularly with other announcements and occasionally coupons for the store.
Thanks for reading, and as always, I’ll see you on the highway.
