Blog, come forth!

This blog has gone unloved as of late. I’ve been working too much, and not taking the time to sit back and think about the work I’m doing, and I think that’s a bad thing. Reading Alan Levine’s call-out the other day reinforced the feeling that I should devote more attention to reflecting in this space, if only for my own sanity.

So, as a starting place, I made a new theme – my first revamp since I started this blog in late 2008. I ripped off Mark Jaquith’s idea and used Twenty Twelve – the new default theme that will ship with WordPress 3.5 – as my parent theme. It’s much easier on the eyes than my old theme, and its responsive nature allowed me to uninstall WP Touch. (WP Touch, you served valiantly lo these many years. RIP.) If you’re interested, I’ve made my (very modest) child theme available on Github.

      Thanks, Stephen. Twenty Twelve is a pretty nice theme to work with, and you can see from the stock demo that I didn’t actually make many changes, aside from a few cosmetic tweaks. As for responsiveness – I’m a bit worn out on it as a buzzword, but I do love the simple fact that the site is now perfectly readable on a mobile or tablet device, without having a separate “mobile version”. Even if you’re not using WordPress, there’s lots of CSS in Twenty Twelve that you could probably crib for this purpose!
