If I’ve been quiet, it’s because I’ve been working behind the scenes to make a few changes to the site. The first of those is obvious – I’ve gone back to using the Thesis Theme, spiffed up with the help of Hesham Zebida’s Silver Skin, from ThesisAwesome.
One of the great things that does is give regular contributors a nice author bio – see Dan’s here. Meanwhile Chris Hoole, who’s contributed a couple of posts in the past, will be posting here occasionally (welcome, Chris), which I think is a great addition to the team. On the front page, you can now see more posts, along with author details, comments and tweets.
You’ll also notice some changes in the sidebar. The most recent posts in our most popular categories are near the bottom. The Ask Sharon box is gone, mainly because most of the people using it wanted me to hire them (sorry, I’m not hiring). Instead, I’ve added some of the common questions asked, with links to resources on this site. If there’s something you want to know that’s not answered there, then by all means contact me via the site or ask me on Twitter, my Facebook page or my Google+ profile. You can find links to subscription options and social profiles in the top navigation menu and in the sidebar.
I’ve still got a couple more changes planned, to make some of the nearly 800 posts more accessible. For example, I’m looking for a better way of displaying the sitemap and also linking to some of the series we’ve published here. If there’s anything that would make this site more usable for you, contact me and I’ll be happy to consider it.
