This morning I have put live the new design for my blog. For ages I have been unhappy with the look and feel of my blog, but as I know my limits :), I was struggling to come up with something to replace the default choice of theme. I am pleased to announce now and start using, a great new design, courtesy of my colleague Peter Mitchell at Canford. I am NOT a designer I am a DEVELOPER and therefore I know what I can and can’t achieve. I can often picture what I’d like to see but to create is a whole different ball game. Thankfully Peter had the know how and has done a magnificent job!. I thank him greatly for his time and efforts, and now all we need to do is get him blogging too! I’ve been itching to use the new theme but had to wait for final fixing and testing.
At the same time of releasing the new design, you’ve probably noticed a lot of new content appearing, lets just say I have started to free up a lot more time for my blog and I’m really enjoying getting the information out there! But wait that’s not where the new content ends – I’ve also been working on the following:
- I’ve implemented the great Social Bookmarking Extension by Danny Douglas – this adds links to add posts to many of the social bookmarking services quickly and easily.
- I’ve updated the About Me page (or rather About Monkey now) with some updated information and a little more detail, including the interview recorded by Gary Short with me.
- I’ve reviewed a lot of my posts and updated links and removed long hyperlinks and replaced them with more meaningful titles for the underlying link
I hope you like the new design as much as I do and would love to hear your comments!
