This is just a small update to let you guys know what’s up. You have probably noticed the new theme, but there’s more to tell so read on…
We are currently using a new theme that replaces the one we uploaded about a year ago. This theme adds a large header image and has a traditional blogging layout. It’s simple, clean and elegant.
Some older news articles from 2008 will be slowly added to the site archives. These were never moved over when we switched to WordPress because of a lack of time or interest.
I’m hoping to keep the blog updated more frequently whenever new images, videos and articles are found. In the past it was sort of pick and choose but we’ll make an effort to add much more in the future.
We have had some web hosting issues for the last few months, and it seems most of the issues are with the photo gallery script. It’s a bit resource hungry and it has become quite large, so we’ve had to disable a few things for it to play nice. It’s unfortunate but had to be done to reduce load times. We may just end up moving the gallery to Flickr because shared web hosting is a bit limited.
The website was recently rebranded as ‘Eve Myles Fans’ in order to make it look more like a fansite. Originally, it was branded as ‘EveMyles.net’ and for several years as ‘Eve Myles.’ I think some may have mistaken it for an official site, so adding ‘Fans’ at the end of her name should make it easier to identify us as just another fansite.
Changing themes as often as we do is coming to an end. The newest one seems to be a good fit as it provides a simple blogging platform and a wider sidebar to accommodate larger images. It’s mostly set and forget, which means more time can be spent on adding content.
Finally, some of our social media channels could use some attention. Facebook and Twitter are pretty solid and I’m happy to see our YouTube channel get more subscribers. But others like Google+ have been ignored because I don’t see much of a future there. Instagram is new to me but I’ll make an effort to add more images. We’re not on Tumblr yet but I’ve been thinking about setting up an account. It has a sizable Eve Myles fanbase and I like the format. Maybe soon.
