I finally got done with my redesign of www.dpeach.com. It really was not as much of a redesign as it was a moving to a new platform.
In the last few days I cleaned up the CSS to make the site more readable. I also changed fonts. You can sign up for our prayer letter mailing at the site. That was a feature at the old site as well. This site is functionally equivelent to the old site, it is just easier for me to maintain.
One thing that has been broken for a very long time at the site was the RSS feed. Now that is fixed.
Since it is a WordPress site, I am going to allow people to leave comments and see if I can build a bit of a community there. My readership will grow over the next year as we travel to our supporting churches and announce the site. I also plan to do regular updates. The old platform was not as easy to update as WordPress is. But, that was somewhat by design. When I built the previous site, I did not want it to look like a blog. I also did not want to bother people with constantly changing content. I am going to treat the site more like a blog now and see if I can get some interaction going.
With that done, I can come back to working on the new design of My Thought Spot. I changed the theme here and then abandoned the work I was doing on it. But, I did learn quite a few things at dpeach.com that will help me working on My Thought Spot.

I am just now getting to reading some of my blogs again. I feel shame. I have MTS in my “First Read” label, but there was like 11 posts. AIEEEE
you’ll see I commented on the dpeach site. It looks good by the way!
