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.

General

Busy, busy

These past few weeks have been a little hectic. Juan and I were booking our honeymoon and gave a deposit for the catering service (and went to a tasting). I finished the official website for eWo (the wrestling company I take event pictures of), I’m very proud of my work on that website and I will definitely write a post about it soon.

I’ve been trying to take some time for myself because lately I haven’t really had a moment to breathe and reboot. It has all been meetings, school, work and other obligations. Now that I got two more tests out of the way and don’t have more school for the rest of the week, I can finally get a little time to relax.

I have a couple of posts on the way soon. But I wanted to check in, hope everyone is doing well.

What have you been up to lately?
