Summer Skies Theme

I had been getting discouraged from posting here because I was growing tired of the site theme. I needed a change, so I had started working on a new theme a few months ago, stopped working on it, but resumed recently. It’s finally done and live. If you’re reading this post from your RSS reader, come by to the blog and check it out.

I really like it, it feels fresh and the colors remind me of summer, which is why the theme is called Summer Skies. I used the Color Escape palette from Design-Seeds.

If you visit the site on your mobile device or tablet, you’ll find that the design responds to the device’s size. This is also known as Responsive Web Design, I’ve been doing RWD for a while for freelance clients, but I hadn’t implemented it to my personal blog. From know on, all my theme designs will be responsive.

This was also the first theme for my personal blog that I developed locally using Git. Using a version control system is very useful, especially when you develop on different machines, you can just pull the content to another computer and keep working. This made development easier and faster.

I still have a couple of things I need to work on: I will reduce the number of categories on this blog and try to have as little as possible. If you see any errors around the site, please let me know.

For the past week or so, I have been really sick with the flu that turned into a force of nature keeping me bed stricken. I had never been this sick, and I still don’t feel 100%, so hopefully I will feel better soon.

Before being hit with this unexpected sickness, I was able to find a temporary job doing some web design and development work on a website for a new Fiber provider (think Google Fiber) here in Puerto Rico. That kept me entertained for two weeks. I also have another client that I need to develop a website for. I’ve definitely been busy lately, and I’m glad my freelance business is taking off. Now, all that’s left is to finally put my portfolio online (almost done, just need to work out a few details).

Hopefully I’ll feel back to normal soon and get back to everything I’ve put a stop to these past few weeks.

Hope everybody has been having a good summer so far!
