Biting the bullet

June 30th, 2005

I’m #live# redesigning. This post will grow with my thoughts on the process. Most of you will find this completely boring so feel free to skip past this! It’s more of a record for me than anything else.

I’ve been happy to use the Kubrick theme for the last couple of months but I’m now finally in the position to put my new design into place. It’s all rather bare-bones at the moment but something more substantial will appear shortly. This is a step-by-step process. Step 1 being the underlying WordPress template code. I’ve got to clean up all the old bits left over from the default theme. Step 2 will see me work on the CSS styles.

For the initial rather plain design, I’ve taken inspiration from the likes of Garrett and Tom who avoid cluttering up their blogs with navigation. I may continue along this route or may find that I actally need a nav bar. We’ll see. The search box is currently at the bottom of each page but I might move it nearer the top. A lot of this is farily experimental at the moment.
