Blog redesign, take 2

It’s finally up, and I am pretty happy with it so far. My new blog design has been in the works for well over a month now.

Blog version 1If you forgot what the old one looked like or had never even seen it, here is a shot of it. The old designed served it’s purpose, but now I want to make my site more accessible, and I’ve started with the Featured Topics on the side. Eventually I would like to get some free stuff on here, and possibly even a WordPress plugin I have been toying about for awhile. I will also release the old template for anyone who wants it in the near future, I just have to round up the PSD files and clean it up a bit.

I also must say that Internet Explorer never ceases to amaze me with how incredibly bad it is. I spend at least one full day battling IE7 bugs. As it stands I still have random disappearing backgrounds every now and then, so there is still a bit of tweaking to be done. While I was working on the redesign I found this incredibly huge list of IE bugs. One of the bugs even makes IE7 crash! So far there are 134 bugs listed here. Some of the blog quotes are fantastic, they are interspersed throughout the list.

Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys the redesign.
