New SteveGarfield.TV Site

New SteveGarfield.TV Site

I've just put up a new SteveGarfield.tv site.

History: Why A New Page
When I first acquired the .tv domain, courtesy of .tv, I decided to forward it to the SteveGarfield.tv Facebook page. What I've now done, is create a page that I own and control, where I can add more things than Facebook allows. I've also embedded the Facebook Social Plugin, which gives site visitors a view into and a path to the SteveGarfield.tv Facebook page.

New Format: What the New Page Does
It's a splash page that allows visitors to easily be able to:
1. WATCH LIVE programming on The Pulse Network, including my show when it's live

2. WATCH a HIGHLIGHT REEL of past shows. This is great to show prospective sponsors what the show is like.

3. LIKE my SteveGarfield.tv Facebook page, see the most recent posts, and click over to join the community and conversation over there.

4. Follow me on twitter.

5. Link to my main site, SteveGarfield.com
Behind the Scenes: How I did it
Here a couple of notes on how I put this together.

I created the page using iWeb on a Mac. Then I copied it to my Dreamhost web hosting site in a new directory, sgtv.

Then I went over to my domain registrar, hover, and forwarded my .tv domain name, stevegarfield.tv to forward to http://stevegarfield.com/sgtv/index.html.

Redirecting to the new SteveGarfield.tv Site

I enabled stealth redirection so site visitors will see stevegarfield.tv in the browser instead of http://stevegarfield.com/sgtv/index.hml.

I'd love to get your feedback. Thanks.
