A minimalist look to blogging

Today, this blog gets a design refresh with a new theme that presents a minimalist look to the world. This is version 10.0 of a website running on WordPress that I first started in early 2006 following four years variously on Blogger, Movable Type and TypePad. All these services were stalwarts in the early days of blogs and blogging. I don’t want to make a huge deal out of what essentially is┬áthe installation of a new WordPress theme. It’s a…

If you observed that change and have visited this…

A minimalist approach

[Updated July 27: Today I reverted to the Genesis Framework and the eleven40 Pro child theme. Concise┬áreasoning in today’s post about the change.] Today I re-booted this website. It has a new look and feel, quite a bit different to what went before it. And the domain on which the blog has run since 2006 is also now home to the separate business website I’ve had for some years. So everything you want to know about me is housed under…
