Wow… 2 years ago I bought the domain and invested $200 for a 3 year hosting contract thinking that this would just be for fun. A blog branded as my name couldn’t of been very popular, yet here this blog has grown exponentially each month. I’m truly amazed.
I’d like to thank anyone that has ever left a comment, subscribed to the RSS Feed, sent me an email or even loaded the URL in their browser bar. Without your support, I doubt I would be still here writing content for this blog.
The New Design
As you can see this blog has gotten a very clean makeover, featuring a dark blue header with the large BradBlogging Logo. There are four icons beside the header…
- RSS Subscribe
- RSS Subscribe Via Email
- Contact Brad
- Add Me On Skype (The option of real-time chat.. a nice touch I think.)
There is also a new slogan to the blog, “Building the Internet… One Step At a Time” which reflects the change in mindset I’ve had for this blog. Before now, this blog has been focused on blogging tips to improve your own blog, but I’ve learned that you can only read so much before it gets redundant. So here is the ultimate blogging tip: Blog. Like anything that requires skill, you only get better by doing.
The New Mindset On The Content:
I’m going to be focusing more on startup websites (reviewing them and giving an opinion on it), XHTML coding tips, Cool CSS tricks and WordPress tweaks that you can do to your own blog and website. I think that this will benefit people more through the content than before.
The Rest of The Design:
Fixed Width, Minor Gradients behind the content and sidebar boxes. Custom code on the sidebar to pull the subscriber count from Feedburner. Overall, a much cleaner design than before.
I look forward to writing more content that will help people in practical blog situations. Stay tuned up to this blog for some awesome articles!
What do you think of the new design? Is it better than the old one?
