Some Changes to teganandsara.org

So, I’ve been thinking about .org. I always do even if I’m bad about updating it.

Here’s the thing with the site. It’s a lot of work. A lot of time.

I have a job. A wife. A kid. A blog about my kid. You know, a life outside of Tegan and Sara.

But, I still enjoy having the website even if I don’t have hours to sit and teach myself code. A cool thing about the interweb, is that lots has changed since the time I started the site in 2000.

Social media, social bookmarking, and content sharing have all come such a long way since .org started. One set of photos that would take me half an hour to save, re-size, organize, upload, and re-post on .org can now be saved to Pinterest in a matter of seconds.

And, let’s face it, I have a lot of articles hosted on this site that are copyrighted and really shouldn’t be here.

So, today I’m making a break from the way I’ve been doing things.

I’ll still maintain the site and still archive Tegan and Sara goodies, but I’m also going to relinquish control and trust outside entities like Pinterest and Linkable with some of the content I would previously host directly on .org. This will save me tons of time and free me up to focus on other parts of the site or my life.

It’s going to be a work in progress. Gone are the days when I can decide to revamp a part of the site and stay up all weekend working on it. Now, I’ll have to work on it a little bit every day. But, I will work on it consistenly.

To see where I’m starting, you can visit the .org Pinterest page and the .org Linkable page.

We’re also on Twitter and Facebook.

If you have any suggestions or tips, they are always appreciated. You can email us at teganandsara.org(at)gmail(dot)com

As always, thank you for visiting the site.
