So, I decided to give my site a quick redesign for the May 1st CSS Reboot. It should be noted that Iâ€™m not a web designer, but just a geeky programmer with a thing for standards-based design. I hope you enjoy my entry and my work.
When planning out the redesign of my site, I wanted to emphasize my different interests, without having a typical â€˜boringâ€™ blog and/or link list.
To do this, I grouped together all of my blog posts and links, sorted by date, then figured out when I had â€˜spurtsâ€™ of interest in something. For example, I might be interested in Ruby for a couple days â€“ but then may not revisit it for a couple weeks (which I attempt to emphasize on my site).
I also wanted to really emphasize the projects that Iâ€™m working on. I did this by adding a piece of constant navigation (in the right-hand sidebar) which always points to them.
So, I hope you like the new design â€“ Iâ€™m fairly pleased with it. Some of the fonts in the blog posts could use some work, but other than that â€“ I think itâ€™s fine.
