Over the weekend I upgraded to Headway 1.6 (from 1.01) and had a blast using the visual editor to update everything on my site.
I am still not done, but that doesn’t mean I am not interested in feedback.
If you ask why the change from the “orange” site? Well on top of people finding the “guy” creepy (for those not in the know, that was a photoshopped image of Vic Sage, The Question), I felt it was time I made my site more professional.
I had a long convo about the positives and negatives about this yesterday with J. Money. I don’t want to turn off people that appreciate my non-professional writing style. In fact, I am still going to be dropping F-bombs (that’s “fuck” for all of you good people in the Midwest), but like a really bitchy hot chick, I am trying to seduce readers with the sites good looks, and have them ignore the fact I can be a prick at times.
I should mention, I am going to be learning a lot from this new design. It’s a lot more flexible and I am able to test a lot of different ideas I have had. I am going to be coding things properly instead of using some of headway’s awesome features. It’s nice to have something easy to use, but I think I prefer me some nice HTML at times.
I am hoping to be done with the revamp of the site this week, then start to work on some backend stuff for another week. It’s gonna be fun.
Hope you all had a good weekend.
