Yep, you’re right, it is different. After four years of blogging here at MDH, I decided it was time for a new look.
While I love the old design, I reached a point where I felt it just wasn’t working anymore. The main navigation area at the top is limiting, main post area isn’t quite wide enough, the header area eats up too much real estate on the screen, and the sidebars are a pain in the butt to maintain.
And, the design really doesn’t work well across the various web enabled devices on the market.
Enter the new design.
It addresses all of the issues mentioned above, and provides more flexibility to accommodate some new ideas I have in the works for the future.
Admittedly, the transition is very much a work in progress. I’m still working on flushing out some of the content blocks that were on the old layout, and will be creating a new blogroll page soon, and updating some of the other pages. But the biggest change is done.
I’m quite happy with how things are shaping up. Question is, what do you think? Drop me a comment and let me know.
