Last night I finished the transition to the new version of my blog. It's been like 4 months since the first release, although I really liked the previous version, I had to make some adjustments in the design.

When I designed the first version, I had no idea about who would read it, if someone would read it. However one of the most important thing, which resolution would they use, browser, system and stuff like that. Analyzing my blog's web traffic for the last 4 months I noticed some issues with my blog's design.

Resolutions: Firstly, my blog was designed for a minimum resolution of 800x600, after 4 months, no one has visited it using that resolution, besides, the most used resolution is 1280x1024.

Browsers & Platforms: I thought Internet Explorer would be the first in the list, and for my surprise, Firefox has been the most used browser when visiting my blog. Now talking about platforms, Windows continues to dominate the market.

The new design

The new version is totally different from the previous, starting from the logo that I changed to make it simpler and easier to reproduce, I think I’m going to make some stickers. The color scheme has changed too, now I’m using a brown and orange combination. However the most important thing was the better use of screen, white spaces and to make it more organized.

I hope everybody enjoys the new design, and feedback is really appreciated.
