I’ve completed transitioning the blog to an entirely new design. Long-time readers may recognize layout similarities between this new design and the old but there are a lot of new elements especially under the hood.
I started to work on updating the old WordPress theme that I was using but after some tweaks and frustration, I basically threw it out and re-built it all. The result is a much sleeker blog and it accounts for the variety of screens out there. The generic WordPress plugin for “mobile-friendly” has been deleted and now I control the look and feel on smaller screens. I very much enjoy going through the new site on tablets and users will now see larger photos and videos going forward.
The next project will be a complete re-do of the walking tour. I apologize for taking it down, analytics tell me it was ok, but it’ll be back and much improved.
I hope you enjoy the new site, version 3 by my count.
