So, today I started work on my new blog. How do you like it so far?… A little minimal – I know.
I hope to be adding some handy features soon, and playing with some of the proportions of this grid system. (slim but not overly flexible)
Once I’ve snapped up and tuned all the WP-Plugins I need and can tweak them to my needs I’ll be slimming it down to a nice little package, or possibly see if can use the apache mod to do this for me. the ultimate dev tool for me would be auto-minifying and combining JS and CSS, If I can do this it can save me a lot of hassle in the future, I have used a WP tool for this before but it requires constant maintenance and just turns into chore to babysit.
Design wise I would still like to add some dynamic to it, I love the minimal feel, and think I have hinted towards a bit of character with the typeface but feel some movement or “something” could go well to give the site a bit more charcter at the moment its a little soulless.
I’ll post my alternative design
