Obligatory post explaining the redesign of this site

Yeah, so the Submit button on the comments is out of place in a few browsers, and there are still a few oddities in IE6, but the redesign of this site has just about topped out for now.

I launched the first iteration of Invisible Inkling in September 2006, ending the Ryan Sholin’s J-School Blog era, which had itself transitioned from Blogspot to Blogsome to a WordPress blog hosted on my own little slice of the Web sitting in a box somewhere on the East Coast.

For those of you keeping score at home, this is the sixth different design I’ve used, if we start keeping track back at Blogspot in 2005.

Anyway, on to the details:

INSPIRATION:

CORE THEME:

KEY PLUG-INS:

GOALS:

  • Practice CSS using a WordPress theme that was as bare as possible of any design, and craft it to match my own vision.
  • Present content in a styled, structured way while avoiding certain conventions.
  • Separate news from olds.

RECOMMENDED READING:

NEXT TIME:

  • Start with a blank page and code my own WordPress theme.

THE TIME AFTER THAT:

And now, I’ll move on to my next redesign project, which thankfully is not my blog. I’ll give these pages a rest for awhile.
