Quick Update — RSS, Music Collection, & Git

Hey, everyone! Got a quick update for you.

I recently moved some files around to keep things more organized. All pages (other than the home page) are in their own directory (fittingly just called pages/). All of the articles are still there, but if you're reading along via RSS, the old links won't work. I spent a good amount of time testing out the site navigation to make sure everything still works. Please send me an E-mail if you find a broken link!

In other news, I'm not really sure what I should do with my music collection. I haven't touched it in quite a while. I don't know that I want to give it the same treatment as I did by film collection, seeing as I don't really listen to much music nowadays. And to be honest, tidying up the code of the film collection is more of a priority.

I had thought that maybe I could just turn the music collection into a hub for my music reviews, but I feel like that possibility has been rendered somewhat obsolete by my list of articles. At the same time, I don't know that I want to get rid of the whole page. I did put a lot of effort into the styling of the page (even if it's not up to date with the rest of the site), and it stands as a nice little snapshot of my early days of website building. Let me know what you think should be done!

Speaking of snapshots, I've recently been learning about git. I still have a lot more to learn, but I'm quickly realizing just how powerful of a tool it is for any kind of website/software design. In fact, I'm now using it to keep track of changes to my website. At the moment, I have the site updated to GitHub privately. I wouldn't be against making the repository public down the line, if that's something people would be interested to see. Honestly, I wouldn't mind using some alternative to GitHub (or even hosting my own git server like a Chad). These are questions to be revisited later.

Otherwise, I hope 2023 has continued to go well for all of you, and I look forward to reconvening with you whenever I think of something else to write.
