If you are reading this blog post from the syndicated feed, or from my other external blog over at ITtoolbox, or even from my IBM internal blog, you may want to stop right there and head over to my main blog site http://www.elsua.net, as I am really excited to announce the first of a good bunch of changes that I will be going through in my fourth year blogging out there on the Internet. Yes, that’s right, back in October 2008 I made already my third bloggiversary and although I couldn’t blog about it at the time with all of the travelling I was involved with, for a good number of weeks I have been thinking about going through a major change of my main Web site, elsua.net, and it is with great pleasure that I am now ready to share with you a new massive change taking place right as we speak!
Yes, that is right, if you head over to my main blog you will be able to see a massive change in the design of the site, still using WordPress.org though (Currently upgraded to v2.7), but with plenty of major updates all over the place. A lot cleaner, a lot easier in the eye, a lot less cluttered with widgets, gizmos, scripts and whatever else, and, hopefully, much easier to read and digest its content. Finally, friendly to those folks still on Internet Explorer or using whatever the mobile device (On the iPhone / iPod it looks fantastic! – must confess).
Overall, not as busy as what it used to be, which means that it would probably help folks navigate through the content much easier. The interesting thing is that if you stop over the site and browse through the changes you will also get to notice a good number of updates that will be happening to the overall content itself. Yes, indeed, this update of the template will provoke as well a good number of changes of my own blogging style on all of the three blogs and I am hoping that over the next couple of blog posts I would be able to share some further insights on where I will be taking next my own blogging style.
For now, just wanted to give folks out there reading elsua.net the heads up that the change has now been completed! You are more than welcome to click and check every single aspect of the site and if you find that something is broken or is giving you unexpected results please do get in touch and let me know, through a comment on this blog post itself, or through Twitter itself. I will be collecting all of that feedback and amend bugs, issues, etc. accordingly.
Finally, I would want to let everyone know that this whole facelift of my main blogging site wouldn’t have taken place if it weren’t for the superb piece of work put together by Laura Whitehead (@LittleLaura in Twitter) who over the course of time has managed to put together a wonderful job and has been incredibly patient listening to my needs and wants and what you see right in front of you is all her work! Well done, Laura! Thanks ever so much for that fresh change! … Very much needed 🙂
