Messing with things

Sunday, October 11th, 2009

(Nobody will be reading this post until months or years after it was written, so I’ll write it from a future perspective.)

In October ’09 I started taking my site’s design and navigation more seriously, in the hopes of making it a more successful site and increasing my motivation to write posts.

Before then, pointed to my portfolio site. My blog was accessible only by entering its URL; there was no link to it, because it was ugly and off-brand, and wasn’t updated frequently.

By throwing everything into WordPress pages and making a custom theme, I can now direct visitors straight to the blog. My portfolio was redesigned to fit in with the rest of the site, though it can still stand on its own.

I’m now much happier with the way things are. I think October was a turning point.
