Last year was my most productive yet here on my blog. It’s an all too common case that I stop posting things when I grow tired of the site design. The last one, thusly, was quite an achievement: it carried me for more than a year. Still, my later silence meant it was time to shuffle things around a little — if anything, just in the name of movement.
I also have to acknowledge that sometime in the past few years I stopped thinking of new designs and instead began to embrace the fact that I’ll be constantly iterating on my website for as long as I have it. Even this iteration is but a refinement of what I already had in place — same navigation, same content structure, same pieces. I’ve paid more attention to the typography this time (using Dolly, a favourite of mine) and kept the Tonesque integration, which I like a lot. (Images and illustrations are a part of who I am, so I just embrace that even more with this design.)
Now that my disdain with the old design is relieved, I have quite a few posts and pictures on the drafting board that I want to publish. It’s been a good year so far.
