Todd Hiestand v7.0
If you are a visitor to my website and not just reading this through my RSS feed, you’ll notice my blog has some new clothes. Okay, so I know what you are thinking. Another blog design? Really? Really? Version 7?!?! I promise, there really is some rhyme and reason to this redesign.
First of all, I don’t blog as much as I used to so I needed to find a way to bring my older posts “up” into the spotlight a bit. I think I accomplished that here.
Second of all, I’m not just bored. In fact, I’m busier than ever. But, the last design I had was a theme that I had been developing to resell to clients. I’d been testing it on my blog and refining it. It’s finally at the point where I feel comfortable reselling it so it was time I moved on from it on my personal blog. (Note, if you are interested in a budget sensitive, customized blog template, let me know. That’s what I do).
Third, as a designer, one of the best things you can do is, every once and a while, use your creative energy to create something for yourself. It’s energizing and usually results in better work for your clients.
So, needless to say, I had to rush this and it’s probably far from perfect. I’ll refine it as I go. Let me know if you see anything that is outrageously broken (or even slightly broken).
