Complete Blog Overhaul

Written by Jason Lambert

I’d be a lunatic not to accompany my updated blog with a fresh post. There’s a brand new landing page as well. I’m very happy with the results so far.

Instead of adding a bunch of images here, I’ve gone ahead and archived an old build of this blog for you to compare first hand.

Before And After

You are already viewing the after so here is a link to the before (opens a new tab).

What Did I Do?

  • Added ‘graphic’ field to every article’s metadata.
  • I’ve rewritten the CSS file from scratch!
  • I reworked the main page to include project cards.
  • Added some animations and Neumorphic design elements.
  • Added social links at bottom of every page.

What Did I Learn?

  • I’ve been evading a proper CSS eduaction for years. I feel I have a much stronger grasp on things now.
  • I need to stop being so stubborn.
  • Neumorphic design!
  • Did I mention CSS?
  • Oh! Some good sounding layout advice from a YouTube video I watched this morning: have something big, something medium, and something small.
