ZIPOLITE, Mexico- As you have probably noticed, the Vagabond Journey travelogue has a new look to it. No bullshit was the mantra I was chanting as I put this together.
I dropped nearly a hundred dollars for a premium WordPress theme, sucked it up, swallowed my pride, and let this new system put itself together. I tinkered too much with my previous themes, I tried to exert myself over the frameworks that I was previously working with, and I made my site look muddled on most all fronts.
It took honest words from my friend Dave at TheLongestWayHome.com to knock this old junker into gear.
Now I am going clean, straight forward, no bullshit: I want to put my time into publishing content, not tinkering with code; I want to write, not design webpages.
This new design is the result. Over the upcoming weeks I am going to extend this look to the rest of VagabondJourney.com except for WIKI Vagabond — this site needs to look like a wiki site so visitors know what they are dealing with.
What do you think? Is the design clean enough? Is it easy to use, easy to navigate, easy to read?
Any feedback is appreciated.
