I redesigned my blog...again...21 Aug 2017
I decided to do yet another overhaul of my blog. This time around, I had a look at everything and asked myself “Does this greatly enhance the user experience?” If the answer was anything other than “Absolutely”, I trashed it. Needless to say, most everything got trashed.
- The Material Floating Button
- The stupid footer
- The search in the menu
- General tom-foolery going on in the menu
- The stupid background image
One thing I plan on adding to the menu is a “Categories” feature, just so
viewers I can more easily find things without going through the whole list
Now, what is the end-game for me here? Well my friend, I proudly present to you
I am still working on Google’s PageSpeed Insights for my page, but it seems like the main issue there is render-blocking CSS in above-the-fold content. My site would not look good without the CSS. For one, the menu button is a checkbox without styling, which doesn’t make any sense at all. Because my site loads quite fast, and because I think no CSS would ruin it, I don’t think I’ll follow Google’s suggestion.
I have to admit, I am massively pleased with the results!
I have just completed reformatting most of my blog posts. I have to say, after having reviewed them, I’m not sure if I should be totally embarrassed about what a complete idiot I was/am, or if I should be proud about how far I’ve come since I started writing these stupid things lmao.
