An Off-Schedule Redesign

Announcement, Design

Every year since I started the candler blog I make the foolhardy decision to redesign the site, almost like clockwork around New Years. This year I even went so far as to switch from Wordpress to Octopress. Well, I don’t know why but I recently felt the need to change things up around here a bit.

Maybe I felt that moving halfway across the country wasn’t enough of a change. Maybe I was jealous that Gabe over at Macdrifter was having all the static redesigning fun. I don’t know. But I do know that Monday’s post, “Practice Makes Better,” was the result of me trying to pump myself up to finally take on the challenge of moving things around here. For the longest time I figured that, if the site is working as-is, why mess with it? Because I can, because I want to and because, if and when I break it, I can always fix it.

So, welcome to the new candler blog. And if this is your first time joining, please take a look at what it looked like this morning:

I know there are parts of the site that may look off for now. If you run into any problems or have suggestions, please don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments or in an email.

And please enjoy the site. Plenty more to come.
