New blog design

Thank you all for your help in deciding whether or not to change to a new blog design.

If you’re reading this through RSS, why not swing by and check out what it looks like now.

I’m open to suggestions for changes that could be made, I’m looking to tweak it to make it the most friendly and usable it can be.

You may have noticed that there are two spots for ads on the right-hand side now. If you’d like to advertise your site or product in one of those spaces, please feel free to contact me about it.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

About PeterP

I am a blogger, author, stay at home dad, speaker, web hosting trainer and geek (I was so excited to get an iPad that I actually made up a song and dance about it). I am English by birth, but currently live in California with my wife and our three children. I ran a web hosting business for nine years and found that many, if not most of my clients had never learned how to use any of the functions associated with hosting so I wrote a book to try and teach just those skills. I must admit to having fallen in love with WordPress (possibly a little TOO much) and I honestly find it hard to understand why anyone would use anything different to build a site! WordPress is wonderful! My passion is to help others achieve their goals with their websites/blogs. I believe that, with a little help, anyone can have an awesome site.

    I love this! Clean, sparkling, new….are you for hire? Great job, Peter!

    1. Peter_P says:

      Thanks, Candy.

      For hire? Definitely… but I'm VERY expensive 🙂

      No, seriously, I just take themes I find for free and mess with them a little to make them do what I want.

    1. Peter_P says:

      PINK? Ummm. I'm glad I could make you happy 🙂 LOL

    I kind of like it, though the floating social media links is annoying cause they're so close next to the text on your blog, but I'm one of those people that read normal via RSS so it doesn't matter 🙂
    The background does look pinkish. I like the look of the new site, now all you have to do is advertise my unrelated political and/or personal blog 😛

    1. Peter_P says:

      Ahh, you have a netbook with a tiny screen, right? I can see how those things would be annoying. They're annoying for iphone users too.

      Did you see I got smiley faces working again just for you?

      1. sensico says:

        no, I'm on my desktop but thanks for reminding not to visit if on my netbook. My issue could also me screen resolution(?) I'm working on 1024 x 768.

        And thanks! I actually love these smilies better then the last ones. They are so B) and make me 🙂 I <3 them, oh so much. You're a B) dude 😀

    Looks great! Nice and clean…

    1. Peter_P says:

      Clean is such an interesting word to use… but I know what you mean 🙂


      1. Bridget says:

        How about fresh and crisp? I think 'clean' is odd… but it does describe the 'look'!

  5. Hey, Peter,

    I've got a big 'ol 16×9 screen on my laptop and it looks sweet. Very clean and neat.

    1. Peter_P says:

      Show off 😉

      I'm glad you like it. Thanks!

  6. oh – I much prefer this to the old one! It's so clean; I know exactly where to look to read!

    1. Peter_P says:

      YAY! I'm glad I made the change, it seems to be going down well with people.

      Thank you!

  7. Maureen says:

    You may count me among those who like the change. The other was so busy; it looked a bit like Times Square.

  8. I despise it.

    (Not really; I just wanted to be different!)

  9. Peter – this new blog design is AWESOME. I'm with Kelly. Now, I know exactly where to read. Congrats on a lot of hard work, I'm sure!!
