I made a lot of new updates to the site yesterday. I improved the menu which looks the same on a desktop but on a phone it is now three lines which you click to turn into a menu which pops out from the side. It's pretty snazzy. John Carter, fellow revolution acrobat, is the one who suggested this and the one who got me started on Webflow.
I am of course constantly updating the site, especially the Washing Machines section. Each day as I look through my facebook, youtube, and instagram feeds I save certain videos to later put on this site.
So future projects: We are working on teaching in Atlanta with the Acrosmiths, Danny and Aniane; We will be at the American Acrobatics Convention in Nashville this year; We will be in Sacramento, Ca. You can find all of these dates and facebook pages in our upcoming events section.
Yesterday I worked on the Upcoming Events section. Debbie and I have a lot of workshops planned in the next year: ten planned so far. I had to change the format of the page so I could list several links to pages per one workshop. I used to have all the links link to facebook events but people who are not on facebook cannot see facebook events. I changed it so some events have a link to Event Brite. In the future I might make individual website pages for each event.
I worked on the Level Up section. In this section I explain how to level up in your practice. If you are new where do you start? What is next if you are intermediate? Those are the questions I try to answer.
Debbie and I plus Hobs, Kena, Brent and Athena are going to perform an icarian routine at the San Diego Acro Love. It is in only a few weeks now. Wish us luck.
I worked on the website for hours today. I added a lot of new washing machiens to the "Machines" section. I looked though many of the YouTubes of more well known acrobats such as Bryan Flanders, John Rhea, the Yogaslackers, and Josh Young.
I added a new section on the main page; flows, routines, acro dance, and acro music videos. I made separate sections for ones made by Debbie and Jacob and made by everyone else. Debbie and I have many several really good acro music videos over the years. You can find my favorites made by others too.
You can see on the events page we have 8 upcoming events now. We have even more in the works but the FB events are not ready yet. We have a new Patreon video up. Pierre's Flair.
I am working on a new section: Getting Started. This will be for people beginners who happen upon this website. These are instructions for what skills you should learn in order to move from beginner to intermediate to advanced.
Every day I work on the website I have more and more fun doing it. I tried making a website a few times in the past but I never took to it. I am using web hosting platform called Webflow. It is more complex than Weebly or Wordpress, or Wordpress which makes it harder to learn, but this complexity makes the design possibilities endless, which makes it a better tool. Every time I work on the site I find a better way to design the menu or I think of a new section to put up.
In other news Debbie and I have been hard at work setting up new workshops. We have regular jobs; Debbie works in the pot industry and I am an arborist. When we get back from work we start making phone calls, sending messages, and looking at maps to see where we want to teach next. This is all highly enjoyable because we talking to old friends, making new ones, and planning new acro adventures.
2019 is poised to be the year we travel the most. You can see the more definite plans in our events section. Debbie and I are also working on Patreon videos. Our goal is to put one up every week while we are home. I want to thank all of our patrons on Patreon for supporting us and learning from our videos. We are also constantly adding to the list of videos on the home section. I have given myself the never ending task of putting up every acro move I can think of.
Debbie and I have been working with our Icarian friends on a regular basis. We try to meet with them on the weekends. We are planning an icarian based acro routine for the NYE San Diego Acrolove.
If you want to help us tell people out our website, watch the videos, tell us what you want more of, consider joining our Patreon, engage with us on the forum, get your community interested in a Jacob and Debbie workshop. We want to make more acro friends and share our knowledge with more people.
