A little redesign is way long overdue here, so don’t be dismayed if you see things change right before your very eyes over the next couple of weeks. So far, you’ll notice the following:
- I shrank the text. The designers at work love smaller text, and I’m beginning to agree with them. But I also want people to be able to read my stuff. So, I shrank it just enough to get a better fit.
- The background is a lighter blue. Dani thinks the periwinkle is both shockingly unmanly (I hate how a color calls into question my manhood) as well as difficult to read. Since I haven’t come up with a new color scheme yet (oh, but I will) I just lightened it a bit. Pretty.
- Got rid of some of the stuff above the blog. All of my text was below the fold, which means fewer people visiting the site would be willing to read it. So I bumped it up a bit.
- Moved the blog back to the front. The idea originally was to write a regular weekly article and promote that on the front. I still want to do that, but I need to get my schedule in order. I think the better way to go about it, though, is to have the blog – which theoretically gets updated more often – up front and promote the articles from there. We’ll see what happens.
I realize this is a pretty boring entry – who really wants a peek behind the curtain that separates the reality from the magic that is RobZazueta.com? But I did it for posterity. You may not care, but your children’s children? They’ll care. They’d better damn well care!
