Design Updates

Just a quick article to let you know about some small changes that I have made to my tech blog today.

Firstly you may have notices that the top bar is now a little lighter than before. I thought my technology blog looked a bit dark, and possibly a bit dingy. To fix this I have lightened the header space up, giving it a bigger, lighter feel. Check out these two images, to see how the top area has changes.

I have also made a few small changes to other parts of the blog, including:
  • Touching up some of the articles - to improve the grammar or to make the HTML 'tidier'
  • Speeding up the site - I have modified bits of code try and make my blog load quicker
  • Modifying the sidebar - in an attempt to make it easier to use, so you can spend more time reading and less time searching
  • Linking to my Facebook page - you can now find a link on the sidebar, which if you follow will let you fan my technology blog on Facebook, this will let you get updates in your feed when a new article is released, or when there is some other news relating to my blog
You may have also noticed that I have recently re-added an AddThis button to my blog. I had one ages ago, but it didn't really fit with my blog, and it did seem to be slowing it down. Now however it is much quicker and more customisable, meaning that you can really easily share the page you are on with just a few clicks.

You can now also 'Like' my blog, literally the click of a button! Why not give it a go?

Have fun using my new sleeker site. If you have any feedback, good bad or ugly, please send it to me through my contact form Smiley Face
