After several weeks, I’ve finally finished porting my site over to a new minimal black and white design (bye, pink links!) and updated the platform. It feels really good to have everything redone in a way that reflects my current digital activity and also allows me to have more personal, and not just professional, expression.
If you’re a regular reader, you’ll notice new categories:
- Writing = articles and longer posts about design, web, tech
- Creating = posts about my projects or visual works in progress (sketches, designs)
- Living = whatever I’m up to in my personal life (photos, events, thoughts, diary)
- Bookmarks = what I’m reading, linking to elsewhere
- News = client news, press, project announcements. Same as before, but now integrated into the main blog.
The RSS feeds have changed too, so feel free to update, although if you’re already subscribed, old feeds have already been redirected so you don’t need to do anything.

Things I’m debating/in the works:
- Import a backlog of bookmarks
- Upload a stream of daily photos from 2004 – 2009
- Scan and upload my sketchbooks
- Migrate over my other personal site content from 1996 – 2003
- Possibly replace MyBlogLog’s recent readers on the bottom in favor of Google Friend Connect members.
- Possibly use Disqus for comments
Despite my love of micro-publishing on Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, etc., I’ve been longing to make the switch and publish more here on my own site, where I know the content will live “forever”. This site has morphed in many ways since it began, and will continue to, but in the long run, I’m still working on making it a digital archive of what I’m thinking, seeing, creating, and doing. Thanks for reading and visiting!
