Hey, another new one! Seriously, once I had everything for my other sites ported over to Wordpress, I just had to do it with this one as well. I'm going to be experimenting with the design for the next few days, but I'm pretty pleased with it. To elaborate, these past few weeks I've put a lot of time and energy into learning quite a bit more about web design and programming. I've learned a great deal about CSS and the Wordpress system, and after putting so much energy into the project, I couldn't just leave StefanClaypool.com sitting there at Wordpress.com. Furthermore, I felt like the old look of the site reflected a period of my life that has past. The plain truth is that I'm not a college blogger anymore, and I need a site that reflects that.
Consequently, I've divided the old StefanClaypool.com into two sites. There's this page, which is designed for writing and political commentary, and then there's the new page at SMClaypool.com, which is designed as a more professional web space. The separation enables me to present myself both professionally and personally, which is something that the site didn't really allow.
The challenge now, as always, is finding content for this space. However, I've been working on a serialized story that I think would suit it nicely. I'll be spending the next couple of weeks getting all the old content ported over here, and then I'll figure out how to move forward. Thanks for your patience, and I hope you enjoy the new design.
