• WasWatching.com Renovation

    Posted by on February 4th, 2010 · Comments (11)

    One month ago, I shared that “there’s going to be three major changes to WasWatching.com – with the intent being to improve the blog.” And, last weekend I was able to share the news behind the first of those three changes.

    The second major change to WasWatching.com arrives today – as you can see. We’ve updated the look of the blog with a custom theme via the good folks at Beers Design. There’s been a lot of work behind this effort over the last month. And, of course, my thanks to Beers Design for making this happen. In terms of asking the right questions, actively listening to the client, and providing consulting expertise, Beers Design hits a homerun on every swing. They’re extremely professional. And, they also excel at relating one-on-one with the client giving a personal touch to every interaction. If you’re ever in need of a custom websites and/or WordPress theme, I highly recommend using Beers Design.

    Speaking WasWatching.com’s look, this is also a perfect time to once again thank Pete Mrsich for all his great work over the last three years on various WasWatching.com graphics – including our current banner. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: It’s always been a pleasure to partner with Pete on these projects. And, if you’re ever in need of a talented graphic artist, I highly recommend Pete Mrsich.

    The look of this blog has come a long way in the last 4 years and 10 months, huh? Remember what it looked like back in the beginning?

    A long way…indeed.

    I sincerely hope you like our updated look. And, again, a million thanks to Beers Design and Pete Mrsich for all their creative efforts behind getting us to where we are today.

    One more “change” to announce…coming soon…within the next two or three weeks. Stay tuned!

      If anyonee’s interested, there’s an internet archival website that downloads copies of websites periodically throughout time, and you can see the evolution of waswatching.com here:

      I’m not really sure why it stops in ’08, though.

      @ Corey Italiano: Where do you think I got that screen shot from? ;-)

      I like it. Pretty crisp. I wish the recent comments widget were higher (it’s often how I keep track of conversations), but I get that SNY wants their stuff up top. Nice stuff, Steve.

      Beers Design gets the credit for that. They know what they’re doing! ;-)

      Steve,

      What has been your experience with wordpress? Overall, do you find it easy to use? What did you think of the learning curve?

      Very easy to use. I can’t even remember what it was like to use Movable Type – seems like it was a million years ago.
