Ah that’s better! What do you think to my new home? Do you like what I’ve done with the place?
I’ve been on about this new version for quite a while now and I’m glad to now be able to show it off to all of you!
I have listened to feedback over the last couple of years and noted what you thought worked well on the site and where you thought I could improve on. One of your biggest comments was that my previous incarnations have been on the rather dark side which has meant that the text on the site has been a little hard to read. So, as you can see, I have opted for a much whiter affair. I think it is much lighter and fresher and is definitely easier to read!
One of the previous problems with my other versions is that older content seemed to get lost after a couple of weeks and the stories never got read. But this new version allows me to cover certain subject much better. For example this new theme lets me keep older stories on subjects such as Green Deal and CE Marking right up there on the home page of this site. It is important issues like these which I believe we all need to have access to, and this new style allows me to cover these stories a lot better and display much more content about them.
There are other little nifty features on here such as the video widget in the top right hand corner which adds a little other dimension to the home page. I am looking to get more video posts into the site. Might even do a few vlogs in future ;-)
Over the last few weeks I have asked a few people I know if they would like to write a guest piece for the day of the relaunch and I am pleased that I have a few to make live as the day progresses. So keep an eye out on Twitter as they appear!
Please take a look around. I think there is a lot more to explore on the new site than the last one so please have a dig! Feedback is also very welcome so please feel free to leave a comment saying what you like or don’t like!
A light background with dark text is always easier on the eyes to read. The site refresh is a welcomed one and looks a lot more professional too.
Keep up the great work!
