Well it has been a while since I did my last blog redesign. Even when my blog moved from using Movable Type to WordPress a couple of years ago the style staid pretty much the same.
Though I had come to realize that my blog might have looked alright some years ago, it was really quite busy image wise and not that quick to load. In the past I also had minimum support for mobile platforms.
So I decided to do away with the three column format and go with the main area plus one other column. This also gives me a little bit more room since at times I was a little cramped at 500 pixels wide.
I was also admiring the clean looks of some other Catholic blogs that I like. Though I noticed that in almost all cases these blogs were professionally designed. While I have all the pretensions of a designer, I just don’t have the talent to match and so this effort surely reflects that.
My long time image of Blessed Miquel Pro has been moved to my about page since I certainly still need my blog patron.
So if you like the new design or at least are neutral about it let me know. Otherwise do you really want to ruin my Christmastide by telling me that my efforts sucked? Constructive criticism will be appreciated.
