New Videos & New Features

Hello friends, I’m excited to announce that I’ve made several additional tweaks to the site and my Thesis theme. You’ll notice that the header is now significantly better incorporated into the theme. I’ve also included a number of social media buttons and tools in the sidebar and significantly, I’ve added a subscribe via e-mail button at the top of the right hand sidebar. Moving forward you can now get e-mail alerts when I post new content or just click here!

I’ve also completed two new travel videos from my Argentina trip. While these videos will be appearing in future posts covering the destinations they capture, I wanted to share them with you as a sneak peak for what is in store! I highly suggest watching them in HD and full screen mode. You won’t regret it!

New Theme – New Framework

Howdy all,

You’ve probably noticed by now that things have changed a bit. After more than three years using my old theme I’ve decided the time has finally come to upgrade my backbone/framework and re-skin the site.  While the theme is in no way complete I’ve switched over to the Thesis framework and gotten the fundamentals worked out.

What this means for you is faster site performance, improved social media access through facebook, twitter, youtube and flickr as well as improved navigation and plugin/widget based feature functionality.  The old theme was so old, that only about 40% of the plugins available actually worked on the site and of those many didn’t function properly.

You’ll also note that we’ve gone WIDE! I’ve opted for a much wider format blog design than my older layout. This allows more sidebar space while also providing significantly more room for larger images, video and text in the main body of posts.

If there are certain features or functionality elements you’d like to see on the new site, please let me know.  Similarly, if anything breaks or isn’t working right, please shoot me an e-mail or post here.

Lastly, what do you think of it?  Like it?

Thanks for reading!
