I guess it’s a good thing to never be satisfied and always strive to make something better but I may be taking it too far. The more I looked at the last design, the more I felt it was too busy. This design is super simple. Still need to create the archive page and work out a few bugs though.
I’ve redesigned by blog again. There are many small style issues that still need to be addressed but overall I’m pretty happy with the layout and design. This version took me about 20 hours over the course of two months. I took a big step towards the future and embraced HTML5 more than I ever had in the past.
I’ve installed a blog on my website (duh, you are reading it). My goal is not to blog but rather to gain experience installing one. I’ll probably put significantly more hours into styling, coding, and whatever other cool things I can find than into blogging.
