Blog Site Theme Update

For the folks that are using an RSS reader, you might not have noticed the quiet update on the site’s blog theme.  It sure does make your day that much better when things are feeling a lot better on your site.  A fresh & new blog design is one way you can brighten your day!

I just wanted to mention that Jeremy Kratz does some really great work and was very much a pleasure to work with.  His portfolio includes some other great work like Stack Overflow and Scott Hanselman’s blog site.

Some of the large goals I had were mainly around:

  • Great Reading Experience for Mobile Devices
  • New Standards-Compliance
  • Looking the Same Across All Modern Browsers & Versions
  • Ability to Easily Make Modifications for Static Content in the Future

One of the side effects of this work is that those heading to the site using Internet Explorer 6 have a horrible experience.  I’m okay with that.  IE6 users probably know that they need to be getting over to a modern browser already. Smile  Thankfully – I don’t have that many folks using IE6 so thank you for making that decision easy.  According to recent metrics, it’s not even in the top 10 and it’s only 0.66% of page views.
