It’s been nearly 5 years since the last redesign of my blog.
Time to change it again. This time a lot of things change.
Naturally the design is the most apparent change. It’s very minimalistic now. There are no images in the header and the footer and no boxes around the individual posts. I’m using a webfont from Google’s font directory to give the headings a somewhat distinctive look. The HTML is html5 with all the new shiny tags like article and header, but that’s something nearly no reader of this blog will ever notice. I have also put some work into making it readable on mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads and Android phones.
The biggest change is in the backend though. I’ve moved the blog from Movable Type to WordPress.
With the move to WordPress I also decided to deactivate commenting and trackbacks on this blog. Comments and trackbacks have mostly been spam in the last few years and a pain to sort out. I have included tweet and flattr buttons on each post. So you can comment on my posts via twitter or if the comment doesn’t fit into 140 characters on your own blogs. If you like a post you can flattr it.
