New Look at The Happy Rock

by The Happy Rock on September 17, 2007

The long awaited site redesign is finally done. It did the design and upgrade myself, and I am pleased with the results. It was a very good learning experience, although with all the new found knowledge by the time you finish something like this you are ready to do it again.

I want to thank all the readers and friends that voted a few weeks back. Number 3 was the overwhelming favorite, although it wasn’t my favorite. The first column color doesn’t look right on my home computer, but looks good everywhere else. But this site is for the readers, and the readers spoke! Please, always feel free to drop me an email or leave me a comment if you have ideas for improvements or things you don’t like about the site. I highly value your input, and it is this input that shapes the site!

It looks really good Happy Rock. Site redesigns can be a time consuming process. I did a redesign on my site about a month or two ago and it is very rewarding when the finished product is completed, but a little hectic undergoing the process. I have modified a few other wordpress themes and it seems like no matter which theme I choose there is something that is strange about the way it was coded. Maybe it’s just me though. Good job and looking forward to tons more content.

Also, I saw in your About page you went to IUP. My company has a small office in Western PA, and quite a few of our employees up there went to IUP. Small world…

All the hard work indeed has paid off. The site redesign looks great! The colors look good on my computer and complement each other. Is the picture of the preppy looking guy in the upper right corner you?

The new design is working quite well. It’s good that you’re finished because now you can take everything you learned and do my redesign. I can’t wait. It’s gonna be awesome!

@SavingWithMe – Thanks for the kind words. IUP should crank out pretty good software engineers, hopefully you can attest to that!

@CPA – Yep that’s me.

@Double Eagle – It sure will be awesome. 50 bucks an hour awesome! Just kidding.
