Yes, this is the same blog, it’s just different. I was beginning to feel that my old site design was looking rather tired, so I’ve done this revitalised design, taking into account some of the latest web design trends, and generally making everything a lot cleaner. Do let me know what you think of it, I’d be interested to hear your suggestions!

Right, with that done, I suppose I ought to get back to doing some real work…

Another makeover? Seems only last week you gave us the ‘sunset’ look. I like the new, freshly squeezed appearance and the text is nicely balanced. The date of each post is very faint on my screen though. Good work!

“Latest web design trends”? Careful, Matthew – it’s one small step from that to management / buzzword speak!

But yeah, I like it – looks nice! 😀

Actually the sunset theme came in quite a while ago, and has been carried through at least two design upgrades since I first used it. That said, I do seem to make these design upgrades on a relatively regular basis… far more often than most other web sites I manage! My excuse is that this is effectively by test bed for trying out new ideas and techniques, meaning that if I can keep my own web site looking modern and fresh then I should be able to do the same for my customers.

About the light grey text, it’s not supposed to be all that important, so I wasn’t trying to attract attention to it. Thanks anyway Dad, I’ll darken it slightly! 🙂
