I'm not sure how long I've had my old site up, which you can see here, but I know it's been a few years which seems to be how often I undertake a redesign. This is my 5th redesign, and I kind of wish I kept screenshots of the older ones. I'm sure I could find them if I looked hard enough.
As I always say with each redesign, this one has to be my favorite. I went from static .html files which had to be tediously and manually updated, to a few Wordpress sites that were easy enough to update but I never felt that good about the way I structured them.
I've been working with drupal for a number of years now, and while working on client sites, I lamented my own and wished for the time to convert mine to Drupal and also make it fully responsive. Easy to update and expand were also givens.
And now, after a lot of slow progress, I can consider it launched. I still have some 301 redirects to the old site for things I either haven't yet migrated or don't plan to migrate. I love that even my administration theme is responsive -- I'm writing this blog post on my phone with ease.
The design itself is also very simple, but functional. I am actually hoping to never redesign the site again, just enhance it. But who knows if that's going to be the case.
Anyway, seeing as my last real post was over a year and a half ago, which tells you how much attention I've been giving this site, I state again with new resolve that I'm going to try to blog more often. Especially now that this task I've been thinking about for so long has finally made progress.
