While it’s not a full site redesign, it does feel better than what it was before.
I started by moving the site navigation up to the top and be horizontal rather than vertical. I started to play around with having the logo overlap the navigation a little, which led me into doing absolute positioning in CSS (of which I hadn’t tried out very much). The end result took some tweaking, but I’m happy for now.
Also, to help fill out the horizontal navigation, I added two more sections that I’m expanding on. The first is
Projects, which is going to feature details of the various projects I’ve worked on in my professional (corporate) career. This will be set up to contrast on the technologies side with what’s listed in the Portfolio section, which features the personal sites I have worked on in my spare time.
The second new section I’m working on is the
Technology section. This section will feature many of the technologies I use in my personal sites (to start) and provide some insight and examples of how I implemented them. They’re not targeted to be full blown tutorials or anything like that (as if I have that kind of time), rather more of just an overview and inspiration for anyone else interested to want to learn more.
These sections look a little (or a lot) empty right now, and will take some time and commitment for me to get around to updating it all, but I’ll get to most of it eventually.
If you’re reading this, you can probably tell I updated the look and feel of the blog to match the new changes to the site design as well. If it’s also your first time reading here, you probably didn’t notice how blank it was before. 🙂
That’s where I’m at with updating this site for now, short of adding all that content to the new sections. Time to spend my efforts elsewhere.
