Change is Good?

It didn’t start off as a total re-design on all of my photography sites, but it just happened that way. It was bothering me that my top header was really too big for my tastes. I’m always telling other people (on other forums) that the pictures should be the focus, not the other fluff. So I had to do something.

As I usually do before I look for new changes, I cruised the net for some inspiration. Not sure if I saw any inspirational sites, but I went ahead and made a few minor changes….at first. Then I thought I would make a few more changes and a few more….you get the picture. I always use my “playground” website. This way I’m not disturbing my regular site.

When I was happy with my new website, I had to change how my blog looked. When I was happy with those, I threw the switch to make it live. Of course since I also have a Smugmug site (it’s a long story), I had change that too.

A few evenings ago, I got a PM from a guy that wanted to know how I did my Facebook page. I told him I used FBML, Facebook’s version of HTML. I pointed him to the link I used when I set up my original Facebook page. In all of this, I found out that Facebook will stop using it, so I had to learn how to use iFrames. It was a bit of a rough start, but I’m really liking my new Facebook Fan Page.

So, I hope you like the new look!
