Today’s a little community outreach, so to speak. Regular readers will know things have been a bit hectic for the past month or so, and it’s meant that camera time has been really limited. A lot of blood, sweat and tears have been shed behind the scenes and in the new year Oh Drat’s getting a makeover, with a better looking and more efficient site, a shift in the way we deliver content to you to focus much more on video, beautiful photography, and easily digestible information, and the content itself is going to be much more geared towards understanding and enjoying music and production. We’re tidying up everything from the logo to the idents, Chris is going to start ironing his shirts before pressing record, and the content will be much, much more focused on regular, high quality posts than beavering away to get something new on the site every day.
Our first birthday just whispered by, and we didn’t really celebrate it because we feel a little like we’ve been letting you down over the past month or two. It’s been a year of experimentation, and some things have worked really well, others less so; as we move forward we really want to make sure we’re making our loyal readers – and we know you’re out there – happy. That in mind, please let us know what you’ve liked and loathed about Oh Drat so far, and what you’d like to see more focus on in the future. From time to time we get requests for tutorials, reviews, and comparisons on our YouTube channel and in our inboxes, and the general consensus so far seems to be that we’re on track with the level at which we’re going in at… is that right? Let us know in the comments or email Chris; in fact email for any reason at all. Are you an aspiring writer? Know your onions when it comes to production, or maybe music? Perhaps you have some bright ideas, or experience in bringing a community together. Oh Drat is going to get bigger and better, we promise, and the door is always open for talent to join our (currently very small) team.
