If things look like they always have, try refreshing.

There has been an abnormal lack of activity on the site this year1. But in a rare burst of creativity, I went ahead and redesign it.

Compared to the previous design, the new one, called Hyde, is a bit stripped down. There is no mobile menu hamburger (but that’s something I might add in the future), no dark theme, the A Picture A Day section still uses the old color scheme, I’ve decided to not use cover photos, there are a few bugs if you’re viewing this on a cell phone, and a lot of the post metadata is gone. Most of it was just noise anyway.

Now, the writing takes center stage.

As before, working with Hugo is a pleasure. The entire process from I decided to switch theme to the end result you’re seeing now took perhaps 6 hours in total. If you’re looking for a static site generator that’ll take you from idea to production in no time, then Hugo is the obvious choice.

And that’s it for tonight.

Give the people you love a hug.
