Yes, I have redesigned my blog and website once again (thats twice in 3 months). The reason for this was that while my last site looked pretty, I was getting some complaints about performance, loading times etc. and while I want the site to look good, I won’t sacrifice function to form. The final straw for me was when I got this email from Greg
Brent, I was recently visiting your website (the newly designed) and I thought I let you know that it is extremely slow. Nothing really works for me. Menus are slowly appearing and when I select seascapes, for example, the page loads with thumbnail but it takes forever…. So, your site looks nice but behaves really slow. I used to read your post at least once a weak, if there was something new, but now I don't even fell like visiting your site anymore because it just takes too long to see anything, nothing loads correctly, and it sometimes freezes. Some other people may feel the same way. I thought I made you aware of this problem…. – Gregory B
So Greg and I got into a discussion about the site etc. and Greg also made some recommendations for providers of WordPress themes that he has found excellent. So I took his advice and re-skinned my site yesterday. I’ve still got a bit of tweaking to do, but the site is sure a lot easier to use from an administration perspective. The last site was clunky to post, whereas this one is a breeze.
So I hope you like the new site, and I hope it performs better for all of you as well.
