Updates or general information on what’s going on with the website.

Dinosaur Year

As mentioned in my 2018 update, in order to hype ourselves to a new Jurassic Park movie this year with Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. What you’ll see this year is I’ll be focusing on Dinosaur and Jurassic Park related articles leading up to the sequel of my favorite movie in June.

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be any other type of articles, but normally I reserve all my Dinosaur articles for Jurassic June but this year they’ll instead be spread out through out the year with hopefully one dino-related article per week so it won’t be affecting other content on MiscRave.

I already have a handful of Jurassic Park related articles that need to be written as well as a list of dinosaur movies and shows that will be reviewed.

MiscRave 2018 Updates

Welcome 2018, I didn’t have a 2017 in review or 2018 predictions since life got a bit on the way but here is an update on what to expect for the coming year. Last year I promised to update the site at least 3 times a week and I ended up updating it daily for almost the whole year only missing about a dozen days or so.

This time I want to keep updating about 3 times a week or more, but I last year I just felt the pressure to update daily and I won’t anymore. I’ll try to make as many posts as I can but also keeping a higher quality to them. I will continue with French Fridays and Music Match. The Digiculture podcast will finish in a few months but I’ll start a new one to take its place. We’ll also continue different traditions like Wrestling Weekends as we get closer to Wrestlemania, TokuThursdays will come back in a bit and Jurassic June as well. Counting we get a new Jurassic World movie this year, I was thinking of leading up to it by reviewing all kinds of Jurassic Park / Dinosaur content but that will be another post. And a TMNT week should come out soon as well.

In general the look of the site is going to be changing this month, so I’ll be playing around with the options I have, so if you see the site changing a lot one day you’re browsing that’s perfectly ok, I’ll just be tweaking the site as it’s still live, I don’t want to take it off lin just for that. I’ll also be archiving all of the content for easier access. I’m thinking of re-opening the forum but unsure about that, it was difficult to keep all the spam off of it and it was taking too much bandwidth.

Organizing Update

A few random site updates, first of all the Halloween season is about to begin so expect “spooky” updates to start either starting October or a little bit before October, most stuff published during this time will try to feature some sort of halloween theme as talked about here though not every article will have to be and I use “spooky” in the vaguest of terms; the piece of media features a mall goth? Spooky!.

I’ve written a lot over the past year so it’s getting messy to go through the archives, similar to how I’m doing it for Layton World so I’m going to start cleaning those up so that it’s easier to sort through content here. I’m also looking to revamp the front page and even the look of the site through out the rest of the year. If you have any suggestions or questions make sure to email me sdp@miscrave.com.

Happy 1st Birthday MiscRave!

We were offline for a day because of some server problems but they seem to be taken care off by now, that did change my scheduling of some posts, like this one. We’re celebratingf 1 year of MiscRave! The site was available for a while before but not much was done with it and in its current reboot started one year ago.

While still trying to find its footing what I especially liked the last few months was that it’s becoming what I always wanted, just a Miscellaneous compendium of all I like to Rave about. But things will continue to evolve, expect more political commentary, musical, fictional continuity analysis, and market predictions. We’ll also have videos soon. Remember the home page includes smaller updates about what is going on with the site.

Learn English & French

A quick announcement on some side-projects here at the Rave.

I was a foreign language teacher for a few years and still help people out from time to time. So I thought I’d aggregate some tools and steps for people who are learning English to use and help anyone who is learning with all the experience that I have gathered over the years. The posts will be made every Wednesday and you can see an archive of them by clicking the link below:

I am also learning French, and every Friday is #FrenchFriday here at MiscRave for the next year as I try to learn and write articles about my progress and things that have been helping in my path to learning a new language. You can follow the posts every Friday or look at the archive on the link below:

MiscRave Newsarama Update

Site was down for 3 days mostly because of problems with my webhost, but we’re in a brand new one hopefully this shouldn’t happen for a long time at least. So, sorry for the lack of updates while the site was down, remember you can always follow me on twitter or follow the site on twitter and facebook to be up to date.

In other news the site in general will be getting a slow re-design over the summer, the forums were taken off since they were using a lot of bandwidth but not many people were using them. Monday’s will continue to feature music related content, Friday’s will have french related articles, Wednesdays have the MiscRave podcast and miscellaneous articles the other days from entertainment to analysis. Smaller announcements are usually made in the front page as I don’t like to fill up the articles section with updates.

Rave it up!
