It's Time For a New Look!

Since I'm trying to get things going again here, I figured it was time to get a new look for this site. Actually, no, that's not exactly the reason why I decided I needed a new look...

Apparently, when you don't update your blog for 19 months or so, things tend to change, and updates tend to take place. As a result of updating the blog to the latest WordPress along with all the plugins, the site stopped working right. It was pretty horrible as things just starting breaking as I started to use them. Michael Kwan can attest to that. He was trying to post a comment and ended up trying to post it three times, each time, something weirder happened.

The theme is actually the brand new default theme for the next version of WordPress (4.0 I believe?). Morten from Pink and Yellow Media pointed me to it. At first, I wasn`t sure about the uber clean look, but I think it's a good way to start fresh. I'm actually thinking of keeping it this way simply because it's so different. It's just so clean compared to any of the designs I`ve had in the past and I feel that anything I post is just amplified by the lack of clutter.

I guess we'll have to see how things progress in the next week or so. There are still many tweaks that I'd like to make. Hopefully I don't take another 19 month break after this post. I better pace myself.

  • It's alive! Good to see you blogging again!

    Thinking that the white, while clean, hurts my eyes for any length of time. I really like the darker backgrounds that let the text stand out.

    It is nice to see a post from you in my feeds again!

    • I might bring the background color up a bit. Just trying to enjoy the new found cleanliness at the moment 🙂

  • Needs a header image, methinks.

    • I think I'm going to go uncluttered and let the content speak for itself.

  • Wow.. back to blogging eh 😉 Been a while!

    • Yeah. I think there will be some Vlogging happening too. Sometimes I just need to get something out quick and that works.

    • PS: Got any ideas on how to fix the squished text around the Adsense blocks? I'm stumped. I've been up and down the CSS and I can't figure out what to fix. Darn fancy new widgetized templates 😛
