As you can see I’ve had a bit of a clean up around here…
The blog design is now much whiter and simpler, with a clearer emphasis on the content of the blog posts. Because I needed a swift solution I’ve based the design on the excellent Wu Wei theme by Jeff Ngan. Not only is the typography of this theme neat, but it also is a very easy theme to customise if you know some HTML – no complicated functions.php files. The site is of course running with WordPress still.
One of the main reasons for the upgrade was the incompatibility of my old theme with Topsy, Sociable and other equivalent plugins to share content on various social networks. Those buttons have now been added – question now is whether anyone is going to use them!
Secondly I’ve been meaning to reorganise the content here for some time, reflecting the changing focus of my work and my interests. The blog now has only 4 categories – EUPolitics, UKPolitics, techPolitics and notPolitics. The first three of these are rather self explanatory, and all my other musings will end up in ‘notPolitics’. There’s a link to each of these in the top menu, and RSS feeds for each (and for combinations of the categories) can be found here.
A few things need to be tidied up still (the footer for sure), and the site hasn’t been tested in IE at all yet, so it’s very much a work in progress. But better to make a start I reasoned!
