It’s a New Day

Do you see it?  The new jonathancliff.com is being released today.  I want to apologize in advance for those of you that will miss the old website, and loved that little blue bird up at the top.  I’m sorry.  (You can visit the Wayback Machine and look at old posts in their original format whenever you want!)

I’ve moved over to the Standard Theme, and it is still a work in progress.  I’ll be tweaking things here and there, so I would appreciate your feedback throughout this process.  You can reach me at jc@jonathancliff (dot) com.  I promise, you can’t hurt my feelings.

Let me answer the big question.  Why would I change?

I wanted a change because the template that I was using was buggy.  I know that many of you liked it, and I received compliments on it often.  However, it was  extremely  hard to get things to fit in the sidebar, and the main post section was always giving me problems.  It was also not a great SEO-optimized platform, and there were very little customizations allowed in it’s design.  It was great while it lasted, but for a free Skinpress.com WordPress theme it was limited.

So here we are with the new jonathancliff.com.  Along with the new design, I will also be making a few subtle changes to what I write about.  You can expect more of what you like, but I’m going to be expanding into more product reviews, sharing more examples of the behind the scenes way we do things in my current positions, and sharing some new voices from in and around my world.

Jonathan Cliff is married to his wife Starr and they together live out their days with two sons and a daughter.

    I like the simple layout. Easy on the eyes and sharp! Thanks for blogging, keep it up! A lot of us “stalkers” don’t comment, BUT, know it’s appreciated!

    I was thinking doing the same thing. I like it a lot.

    Looks great! Now that you’ve got practice with the standard theme, can you buy one for me, design me a new look, and move me over to wordpress?

    Love the cotton field in your header and the one oak tree. What does it mean? It’s so beautiful and so vivid what does it mean?

      This is the backyard tree that Kenny has a picture standing next too. I further illustrates what a GIANT of a human being he is.
