Welcome to the new site

Welcome to the new and improved A Rising Force website.  I’ve decided to move to WordPress for the management of the site.  There are a few reasons that I’ve decided to do this:

  1. Easy Updates - because I come from a background in computers, I have a tendency to think big when it comes to online projects.  That usually means building the entire guts of the website from scratch.  This leads to a lot of recreating the wheel, so I’ve decided to take advantage of already built and frequently updated technology in order to focus more on the music.
  2. Sharing - I’ve decided that I want to share as much of what I’m doing as possible so that other people can copy the model for themselves.  In order to do this, I need to have a platform that everyone can use.
  3. Better - the technology that is behind WordPress is quite honestly far better than anything I could put together in my free time.  It would be foolish not to take advantage of it.

The focus at this point is still on finishing the music; however I do plan on making some updates to the site and adding features throughout the recording process.
