Upon My Return
Wow, that was a nice vacation. Nothing like spending a week in Disney World. With a two year old. A two year old who thought that napping was overrated and couldn't possibly close one's eyes for a moment while there. Despite the lack of sleep, it was actually a fun trip and one I'd gladly do again. Well, maybe I'll wait a few years until the kid(s) are older.
In any case, I'm back and ready to...um...well, I'm not entirely sure. Before the trip I was starting to get a little bummed out with this site. At one point, I was even half-tempted to pull an Oxton and just take the site down. Alas, being freelance, this site is my marketing and I realized taking it down would have been counterproductive. Maybe working all by myself is driving me a little bonkers. You know, "No beer and no TV make Homer something something."
Upon my return from the trip, the angst also returned. So, to help get over it (or over myself), I decided to just push the new design live. It's completely unfinished, especially on the home page, but it's close enough that I don't have to look at the darkness anymore. Or that crazy guy who looked like Jesus on the homepage. What was up with that?
This isn't an early reboot but it kind of is. I'll be working to get the rest of the layout together for November 1st. I've dubbed this design "Content", as in both senses of the word. (I'll be pissed if there's more than two meanings of the word.) It's a return to making the content the focus and not as dark and gloomy as the last design. In naming this design, I decided to give the last two layouts official names as well: Dark Side and Long Way Down.
Anyways, I'll touch more on the design when things get a little further along. Until then, hopefully I'll have more interesting stuff to talk about.
