June 15, 2006

That's the new date for my official website relaunch.

I mad a lot of progress on the website the past couple of days and I'm getting really excited about it. However, there is still more to do than I realized, so instead of killing myself to get it ready by tomorrow, I've given myself two extra weeks so nothing gets the rush treatment.

If you click the post title you'll be taken to my temporary index screen, which announces the date and features the new title logo for the site.

It's a complete tease because it tells nothing about what the site will actually look like.

I will say it's not going to be everything I wanted it to be simply because I don't have the expertise to make it as such, nor do I have the money to pay someone else to do it for me.

I wanted something industrial, yet artistic, all the while staying very simple and easy to navigate. I also wanted to brighten it up from the previous incarnation, so I made the main page white this time around.

If you don't remember what the old one looked like, check out www.brantfowler.com/home.html.

In the right column there was a scrolling frame that contained a journal of sorts with dated posts. Aside from that, it's exactly as it was when it was live. None of the other links will work, not even the home link as I took the rest of it down.

Anyway, though I would have liked some other stuff done to the site, I think I accomplished the basics of what I mention above in the new version. Just 16 days and you will all discover it for yourselves. :)
