One of the major programming and web development projects I’ve been working on lately has been my web page redo.  At this point I am almost fully complete.  Tomorrow I will be finishing up porting many of my blog entries over to the new system.  I will also be creating a tagging system so I can organize my blog content.  Once those two are complete the new blog will be up and running late tomorrow evening, just in time for the weekend.  

I’ve learned quite a bit through this process, and I’ll be linking and discussing much of it over the next couple of weeks.  I’ll be talking about the various services I’m using to create the blog, as well as some of the sites where I’ve found inspiration.  

One of the things I learned from this whole experience, is just how much juice goes into attempting to create something creatively original.  At least, something interesting enough to be not only recognizable but also functional.  Don’t get me wrong, I still have some work to do.  One aspect of which I will be going back through my css and converting all my css over to one file, instead of including it in the <style /> section at the top of each page.

But the truly exciting thing is that I’ve now learned the basics of how to set up a blog.  I am still learning how it all works, and I’ll be blogging about that later on.  I’ve also learned the basics of using github.  For now, I hope people enjoy my new blog look once it’s up and running tomorrow evening.  I’ll post a link to it here on my posterous site, so you can find the new location easily.  If you want to get rss (email) updates, simply select the rss icon on the new main blog page.  As always, feel free to comment on my entries or email if you have questions or comments.
