Changes

These past few months have been a learning experience, it has been a time of changes. A time to think about the future, a time to think about opportunities. I’ve been working on a million things at once, but I’ve finally found a moment of calm during the storm to make some decisions.

There will be some changes on this website, as well as a few projects that I’ve been working on. On this blog I write about a wide variety of topics, and while it’s something I love doing, it’s not something I should do on this blog specifically. Recently, I re-designed my web development portfolio and will be using that website to post programming/development content (tutorials, snippets, etc.) from now on. I will transfer everything I’ve written here about the topic to that website during the coming weeks.

Also, I’ve stopped writing about gaming related content because I will also be having a website about that specific niche. It’s something I’ve been working for a long time now so it’s just a matter of making everything come together.

These changes are meant to keep everything more organized and within its own group, instead of having all over the place within one website. For a time, I thought that was the best course of action, but I realized that’s not what I want.

My goal is to achieve consistency within all these websites and create a system for posting content, and that’s exactly what I’ll do. I will keep you updated throughout the process.

Summer Skies

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.
