Spellbinding Music is my own current music blog. In an effort to focus on the content and music only, I have minimised the layout to a single column with a large font, eliminated all sidebars and reduced the amount of widgets. The blog is active on several social media platforms and can also be followed via a newsletter sign-up.
- was shortlisted for the Blog Awards Ireland in 2013 and 2014,
- was a Finalist at the Blog Awards Ireland 2015
- won best blog at the OMIG Awards 2014.
Spellbinding Music was entirely revamped in November 2017 with a new layout, a new SSL certificate and a new logo. The Home Page reverts to a blogging template, a sidebar featuring the most read weekly blog posts and a large footer section featuring favourite posts.
When using a WordPress platform, revamping an entire website on a regular basis is a fairly straightforward exercise, hence the need to future-proof content from the very start with tags, categories, post summaries and image descriptions.
