Robert Scoble mentioned that it is time to redesign his blog. In my comments, I mentioned that a blog design I really like is David Airey’s site – he is a graphic designer in Scottland. Good use of graphics and logo, and I like the column layout.
As I have mentioned before I initially wanted to focus on the content on my site, to ensure there was something worth reading. I did not want to put the proverbial lipstick on a pig, and have a pretty site with no content. At this point I think my site is decent but not great.
- Overall Layout
- 3 Column format
- Color Scheme
- Layout of content in left and right hand columns
- No custom graphics
- Need to associate the URL ScissorMonkey into the blog more
- Easier site navigation
- Easier to subscribe to site
Site design is something that is continually in the back of my head. I have worked for over a month, and I think I know have some good solid content on my blog. I guess the issue is, when do you have enough solid content to then focus on site design?
Phil Haack leveraged a new designer and struck a deal – redesign my blog, and I will showcase your work. To get his blog redesign done.
I am not sure how I am going to approach this yet, but creating a more friendly easier access design is definitely on my mind.
