Ever since I discovered the Webzine layouts for WordPress, I’ve been looking for ways to customize my site in a similar manner. It was nice to be able to download other user’s templates, but there was always something that rubbed me the wrong way about being able to browse the Internet and find other sites that had the exact same template. Even though I did my best to add my personal flare to the template, there were still remnants that were clearly the same as other sites. Now, that my Web development skills have progressed, I’ve been able to create a brand new layout that still borrows designs from other sites, but at least my influences are drawn from a broader selection rather than just one person’s template.
I’m still not quite finished. The category landing pages are still just placeholders for the most part until I can find the time to create the proper ones, but I was too excited to unleash this design to wait. I’ll probably use next weekend to lay those out. In the meantime, I hope everyone enjoys the new look and I’m happy to entertain your questions, concerns and suggestions. I’d also like to apologize to my RSS readers. I had to recreate some old pages as posts in order to satisfy the new layout’s demands. Unfortunately, I didn’t know how to prevent those posts from slipping into the RSS.
If anyone discovers any bugs or if the site breaks anywhere, please let me know.
