For the observant eye, you may notice that things look a little different over here. That’s because 33 Charts is now housed on WordPress/Thesis. With the help of Nico Pin at SnowyDay Design my content was successfully from Typepad last week and the big server switch occurred tonight.
But we’re still looking for bugs. Between migration of content from Typepad into WordPress and the migration of the site onto my new server there may have been some comments that got lost in the shuffle. If you find something missing, just let me know and I should be able to dig it up from my Typepad account. If you see anything weird happening (or not happening) please give me a heads up.
So why the change? After all, it doesn’t look much different. While I liked Typepad’s ease of use and service, I felt that I wanted more latitude in customizing the look and feel of the site. It’s pretty bare bones right now although I’m planning more creative use of my sidebar as well as the addition of pages that will make it a more complete representation of me. I just found Typepad too constrained for where I want to go. These changes will appear on 33 Charts over the next few weeks as I get used to the platform.
So pardon me as I complete renovations here and don’t hesitate to tell me what you think I should or shouldn’t build into the site. I’m thinking I need something at the top of the sidebar with my name and picture. I’ve been told that passing visitors really have no idea that this is a blog written by a doctor … or even a human. I need to work on that.
I’m sensitive to the visual assault that readers are confronted with on today’s busy blogs. I’ll continue to do my best to keep it clean, minimalistic, and focused on unique content.
Let me know what you need and thanks for reading.
