I designed this look for my Zenful Expressions blog more than a year ago… I even coded most of it into the theme at the same time, but just never finalized it or took the time to repair the quirks that I found.
Well, today I just got a wild hair and finished it. Up to know I had been using the theme Sakura 1.5 by area381, and it did fine for me. It was pretty. It was zenful. That was until I wanted to really USE it. I needed to add some social links in, and they looked horrible in the post. I got in the themes folder to play around, and
noted remembered the Zenful Expressions theme I already made. So rather than tinkering further with someone elses work, I just did my own.
Finally, right? Now, tell me what you think of it.
I have recently gotten back in to doing website reviews, and did my first one with Site Critic, a site that I have done reviews on previously. I was nice to get back to work with them again. I was given a site to review the first day back in touch with Site Critic, and it took me a few days to get my Photoshop back up and running on this new laptop, and a good day or two to really peruse this site so as to give a appropriate review. Check it out on Site Critic and leave your comments.
I have also taken on the position of “Chattanooga Internet Examiner” at Examiner.com – I have yet to write my first article there but plan to get that out before the weeks end.
Live and online, I have redesigned and redeveloped the website for Chattanooga’s Classic Top 40 Radio Station.
Built in XHTML/CSS with PHP includes for all blocked areas allowing for easy updates, OpenX Ads running all advertisers spots, and a WordPress theme to match, the new design is a huge step up from the original version which was hard to navigate, created in tables with depreciated markup, and in frames.
You can read the full case study here, and
visit the site at – Not anymore! .
So I’ve my newest assignment ready for all you professionals out there. And, oh, by-golly, it is magnificently lovely.
