This week is my week off work and I’ve been gaming, reading and studying.
Then today I spent many hours completely revamping this site.
New buttons, new menus, new links and a new page, all for you dear readers!
I felt like the site just wasn’t as simple as I wanted it to be, images and coloured boxes floating around with very little relation to what I actually wanted.
The new aesthetic has a newspaper feel to it that I like, and I’ve made the sidebar menu more contextual; blog menu items on blog pages, external links for courses on my online learning page and direct links to Hive.co.uk for my new recommended reading page (which you can take a look at here).
This has certainly not been a quick and easy refresh, but I certainly feel better about this format. I hacked together some custom CSS, installed plugins for the new buttons and contextual sidebars, and I even checked that it works out on mobile. After all this work, it feels much more ME.
I may introduce some further changes this week, only to tie up a few loose ends though, no more drastic changes are planned!
Anyway, I hope you guys like it, feedback in the comments is very welcome.
