Finally ! …. my blog is ready …

  • After tons of work, my blog is “ready”, by which I mean I have entered the “tweaking” phase, and left the “hard work” phase.

    Now I’ve found I’ve nothing really to say after all.
    🙂

    Anyhow, feel free to cruise over to http://dotsandloops.net and take a look.
    comments welcome …
    Too Maroon ?
    Garish colors ?
    Banner too boring ?
    Whatever.
    Also, please tell me about any craziness/bugs, as I’ve only checked this page on a couple of browsers.

    Of course it will look like crap in old browsers … and there is some minor weirdness with Opera on the category pages …

    Lastly, I’ll gladly share any tips/tricks I picked up.
    Notice I use a custom tag to format different “types” of posts differently. I use comments live preview and a couple of other things.

    I’ve ripped off/cut and paste liberally without regard for anyone.
    🙂

  • I wouldn’t say you have nothing to say. I sat and read for a while and enjoyed what I saw 🙂

    Content rules – so you are doing fine in my opinion….

    Thanks for the voluminous praise and adulation.
    I’m glad to see you guys really like it.
    🙂

    Seriously though, thanks Shadow.

    I’m now done with my first major “upgrade” after finally “finishing” the design.

    There was way too much pink.
    Now I’ve got a hatched gray thing going on in the background … easier on the eyes. ( But … is that grid … too “gridy” ? – and yes, I do have more important things to worry about )

    Does anybody even worry about websafe colors anymore ? cause I could have come up with better grays.

    Oops, I meant to tell you I really liked the site. (even though I viewed it on my Apple 😉 )

    I think I might have liked the first rendition a bit better, actually, but it’s a toss up. All in all, very nicely done.

    Edit: Also forgot to mention you might not have received many comments because this should be in Your WordPress rather than Requests & Feedback.

    Hey thanks …
    I read “Feedback” and figured this was the right place for such posts.

    BTW, don’t get me wrong, Apple makes really good hardware and software (certainly better than PC), i just can’t help but make fun cause their “groupies” can be so annoying.
    🙂

    lol… no worries, just poking a bit of fun back. I actually have to agree on the “groupies.” I’m a recent convert after several nudges from, oddly enough, my egghead programmer and PC user friend. The groupie Apple zealots with their silly elitism actually turned me off and I thought it’d be a cold day in hell when I bothered with anything Mac. Equally as humourous are the Mac martyrs, quick to interpret almost any comment on the web as PC-biased and jump in to uber defensive mode.

    Feedback coming right up …

    Colour: refreshing and trendy.

    Typography: nice – have you tried to give each headline a bit more distance to it’s previous neighbor. Looks a bit squeezed to me. Overall style supports content – well done.

    Usability: everything needed seems to be in place and working.

    Fine blog you have. 😉

    Nice blog…and fun content…for some reason reminds me of Hunter Thompson…nice work…

    I likes it. none of the design elements get in the way of reading or getting around. like orangeguru said… it all seems to be in the right place.

    I also agree that thigs look just a tiny bit squeezed. It took a moment for my brain to wrap around what separated each entry. I think just a bit more white space between entries would do the trick.

    Great look. Keep going.

    I really like the clean crisp look. Good Work.

    Really clean and nice looking. Not too overdone but not boring too look at either.

    Great job.. I really need to learn CSS :/

    Personally I really like it. A very good theme with interesting and well-written content. I couldn’t find a link back to wordpress.org though…

    My eyes don’t see it as too maroon, sort of a light to almost medium maroon.

    Easy to read page.
