I’m just about there. Sorry again for the mess over the last two days – it’s been stressful trying to get everything the way I want it. Even now, it’s not 100% there but I’m slowly making my way to completing it.
As you can see, it’s a drastic improvement over what it used to be – I’ve been learning CSS to modify the page properly and it’s been eye-opening to what I’ve been missing out on this whole time.
A few of the major changes have been that I’m now able to display 1600-pixel wide photos versus 800-pixels – double that is like visual stimulation overload. We’ll see how well it works, if it’s too much, then I can scale it back a bit.
I’ve also gotten rid of the clutter on the side (archives, recent posts, etc) and moved it to the bottom. Again, I don’t deem it very useful mainly because as a reader, I just want to read the latest and greatest. If I decide I want to stick around longer, I’ll find my way to the bottom to search for more.
Added a “Connect” page for those that want to know where my Instagram/Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr/FlickR pages reside. I’m still working on creating a header that I’m happy with – so this will have to do for now.
One of the predicaments I was coming across was whether I wanted to change the layout to be more of an “article-style” website where you click into each post. It’s cleaner, but it’s longer. I think everyone (including myself) likes to see everything on one page, right away.
Anyway – if you guys can think of any suggestions to help improve the site, I’m more than willing to hear it! Thanks for sticking around!
