I know that I recently took a detour from my writing on here, and didn’t mention that I was going to be taking such a long break. The reason is pretty straight-forward: I didn’t realize I was going to. A day or two turned into a few weeks rather quickly, as work and family and holidays caught up with me.
Ah, but my blog isn’t the only thing that’s been neglected in the last few weeks. My feedreader is currently grumbling about the over 2000 unread news pieces I’ve not gotten to read recently. The sad part is, I actually have had a moment or two to read a few things in my feedreader over the last few weeks, and it STILL manages to fill up that quickly.
But, soon enough I’m going to fill up with all the posts that have been in my head while I’ve been too swamped with work to write them down. I’ve been bookmarking things to blog later like mad, so I have a lot of things planned to talk about.
And… anyone remember that post I made about changing the look of the site regularly and showcasing some great designers at the same time? Well, I found a new one I’m in love with from Bartelme Design, and I plan to roll out a new primary layout look for November as soon as I tweak it with all my little WordPress customizations I’ve done.
So… stay tuned. The detour has ended and the road has merged back again.
Update: I found a major problem (for me at least) with the new layout I had planned to implement. Usability and accessibility are too important, and the design has very poor ability to handle increase in text sizing. So… I’m putting off the change over to the new design until either a) I decide to rework the text sizing so that it smoothly changes text size when someone increases it, or b) I pick a new design.
