NEW SHAUNGROVES.COM

I'm done (I hope) with the graphic end of the new shaungroves.com. Kat's turn now to code this sucker and make it work with the "back end" she's already completed. (What I like to call "the guts".)

This is the fourth shaungroves.com incarnation of my career and my favorite so far - simply because it's different and more functional and full than the last three. They were fine but they didn't do enough. The new home page works twice as hard without, I hope, feeling too busy to first time visitors.

Like a real newspaper, the home page (and the entire site) is different every day. You'll see what I mean when it launches. it's not like any artist home page I've seen before and I hope that's a good thing.

The thing I love most about this new approach to a home page: Music and selling music is not the focus. That would suck for a musician but my interests (notice I didn't say talents) are diversified these days. I'm accidentally and slowly turning into a writer and speaker. And while music is still important to me, it's not the core of who I am. That musical fraction of me is represented on the new site but not emphasized more than the others. (Except in the store where CDs out number all other kinds of stuff at the moment.) The other things I do, including talking with you everyday, are just as big a part of the home page.

Here's a peak at the new shaungroves.com home page without content - just a blank slate.
