First Blog post[edit source]

So I've been thinking that a blog is in order. Wasn't sure whether I should set up a separate wordpress blog or just use the wiki for it. I think for now I'll use this wiki page.

What's Been Going On[edit source]

For the past few months I've pretty much been full time adding information to the site. I realized a while back that "If you build it, they will come' doesn't apply to a bare website with an idea. So I've been building a database information and rough structure of pages. I've also been tackling the back end server stuff. The site is now off of the old shared hosting and on it's own server. This has made the site way faster as well as more robust and able to handle more traffic. There was also a lot of cleanup work to be done to make the site less cluttered but also to increase visibility in search engines.

What's next?[edit source]

I have a store of information that I've gathered over the years being a Gearhead that I'll continue to add to the site as fast as I can. I am continuing to check on the search engine health. Good news is that our rankings are getting better, bad news is there is always more that can be done.

Want to help?[edit source]
