Has anyone else been experiencing downtime or errors on Deungdutjai lately? Or is it just me? I’m not really sure what’s going on, I hope it’s either just my internet on my end, WordPress updating and maintenance, or a glitch with the WordAd programming (as it’s still pretty new) and they’re not limiting my bandwidth because Deungdutjai’s getting too big or anything.
Speaking of which, I also apologize for the ads. u_u WordPress needed to start putting ads on random pages to help cover the cost of the site, so I could either pay to have no ads, or agree to have ads more often and get paid for it. Since the death of my computer was an unexpected expense I wasn’t prepared for, I can’t afford to move to my own host right now like I planned. 🙁 So I decided to temporarily go with the ads and see if it can’t help me achieve my goal of my own host any faster. I really hate the ads as much as I’m sure you guys do. ._. But please bear with them for the rest of the month, and I’ll see how much I make from them and decide if it’s worth keeping any longer.
On a more positive note, I finally ordered my new computer! It’s being shipped now, so soon I won’t have to keep annexing my boyfriend’s computer, and soon I’ll have my graphics editing programs back, so I can finish the layout and publicize the Facebook page, then more updating! 😀
As far as site updates are going, if you haven’t noticed already, I’ve moved the artist directory from the sidebar to its own separate page which you can access up on the top bar. This frees up the categories for different things like artist bios/spotlights, news, and album reviews. 😉
I did have to code the entire artist index by hand, though, so you guys can help out by letting me know if a link is broken or I forgot to add an artist or anything like that. Similarly, if any of the translation posts have any misspellings, or if the Youtube link is broken or a better one is available, please comment and let me know~ 🙂
Lastly, I’d like to bring attention to the search bar to the right as well. Here you can search the entire blog for something. This is handy if the artist of a song is in Thai and you can’t read it to look them up in the artist index, or as a faster way to see if I’ve translated a song you’re looking for; simply put the song title in (Thai letters works best, as does using quotes around it) and if I’ve done it, it should show up~ Using this can cut down on people requesting songs that have already been translated, and that way you guys won’t have to wait for me to reply directing you to the previously finished song. 🙂
…I think that’s it for now haha
Thank you all for being patient and bearing with things~ <3
