Simplified OB1og

Well, I took the feedback you provided to heart and made some adjustments to the blog design. I really like the way this came out, so I hope you do as well.

I more or less eliminated the extra colors and went with the blue and the green. I am going to find it hard to resist changing the green to orange at some point, but I like how the green evokes a Spring feeling, so it will stay for the season. I also changed up the layout by moving that middle column, which was blue, to the right side so that the main content is now in the middle. If you want to see more details, you can check out the Changelog.

Now that this has me feeling okay about the overall look-and-feel, I’ll be going to work adding the other features I have in mind. I’ll also be spending less time coding and more time writing content. Maybe my goal with the previous look was to distract you so much, that you wouldn’t notice how bad the content was. I mean, how many posts can you have about routers?!

So, once some new content gets in there, you can be driven away by how crap that is instead.

BTW – You can see that leaving comments produces results. So, continue to leave them about the design and content. My previous post on comments was in response to only one person leaving a thought about Assholes in the Outfield. I can’t believe more people don’t have a comment to add there, even if it’s agreement, etc.

As I have already said a few times, it doesn’t have to be a long one or anything like that. Just because my stats say I have visitors doesn’t mean I can tell if they enjoyed their visit. So, here’s your chance. Comment on this, if only to tell me to stop whining about comments!
