That Grape Juice faithful!
It feels so great to have That Grape Juice V.2.0 up and running – moreso the fact that the vast majority of you are loving it, as evidenced by your comments in our welcome post, along with the countless emails and text messages I received when it went live. The concept was conceived little under a year ago, with the actual design being worked on over the last couple of months.
Designed and programmed by the immensely talented Dustin Gary (with additional work from Tobbie and Lukau), the idea here was to make the site visually encapsulate all that the name ‘That Grape Juice’ lends itself to. Hence gone was the dark colours (and MJ background lol) and in came what you see now.
As well as the design, I want to take the opportunity to shine a light on two of the new sections that are now live at your favourite site and mine:
Ever wondered how the name of the site came about? Or perhaps you want to know a little more about Sam and co? New to the site, and want to know about our history? Click here to go to our ‘About That Grape Juice’ section.
Your favourite stars know where to keep it locked! Click here to check out this section to see who and who support That Grape Juice!
I kid you not when I say there is so so much you can expect from That Grape Juice in the days, weeks and months ahead. Let’s just say, we’ve been cooking up a whole lot behind the scenes during the ‘slow-days’ of recent months! Without hesitation I can say, though, that you can expect much more daily posts, exclusive competitions and awesome interviews (you know how we do!).
That said, we are always eager to hear from you all – ‘the That Grape Juice drinkers’, as someone said to me the other day lol. What would you like to see on That Grape Juice i.e. new features? The return of particular older ones that you really liked? Increased coverage of certain artists? Etc. We want to hear from you! Hit up the comments section below with your thoughts and suggestions.
A tad off-topic, I’d really like to thank the following for their support in getting the new site up and running in one way or the other (queue award speech lol): God (all day, everyday!), my mother and father, my beautiful sisters, Dustin, Tobbie, Lukau, Sean, Kwame, Leon, Jonelle, Antoine, Clifford, Hilario, Joanne A, Alistar, Glynn, Trent, Sandra D, Jamell, Dare, Nathan, Jade, Seye Iizsik and Courtney over at Crushlabs. Thank you.
