A New Look for My Site

with 4 comments

Can you believe it has been three years since I started this weblog? I can’t say that I have been the most prolific poster, but the site has always been somewhat cathartic for me. It has allowed me to share my thoughts and experience in this field, especially in relation to Flash Platform technologies.

So, to celebrate this moment, I have released a redesign that has long been in the works. It took many nights to come up with the concept, and even more to make sure the CSS was working correctly. I feel like this new site will enable me to share even more with you going forward. Here are a few of the highlights of the new facelift:

*Tags:* I have moved away from categories and now implemented a tag based system. This is a little bit of an experiment. I have implemented an AJAX based page that allows you to browse articles that have been tagged. Hopefully you should better be able to find the information you are looking for.

*Projects:* This are will list the projects I have worked on in the past, projects I am currently working on, and projects that I release for you to download on this site. My goal this year is to share more code with you. This is where you will be able to find it.

*Community News:* In the bottom of the main page you will find this section. It will provide a list of links to articles, news items, other weblog entries that I find interesting in my day to day browsing. These will mostly be related to Flash technologies, but may include the random link that I feel may interest you.

*Where I Can be Found:* If you ever wonder which conference I will be at next, now you will know! I will also be back dating this section and adding in past conferences and associated presentation information and materials.

Those are a few of the new additions. I hope to add even more and make this a more productive year for my weblog. My current interests are driving me to do some Flash Lite development, so I am sure you will see that reflected here. If you have any comments about what you would like to see, please feel free to send me feedback. Also, a big thanks to my brother Josh for helping out by giving great feedback throughout the development of this site. He kept encouraging me to stick with it even though the programmer inside me wanted to make everything look like some antiquated ASCII terminal. Here’s to another great year of blogging.

  2. nice design :)

    i’d make the padding a bit bigger for the left side, the text is a bit stuck on the border.

  3. Nice one Danny! Hooray for TextPattern! Glad to see you on board. I’m a little curious about this whole tag thing. What exactly are the benefits of this?
