Remodeling Real Soon

Squeezed March 5, 2006

After I started my blogs with Movable Type, what I realized is that MT relies a lot on Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). As a result, I learned my CSS by trial and error, changing things in the stylesheet template and wondering, “OK, what does this do…oops!” Eventually, I started doing more reading on CSS (read: learning how to do things the right way). In my self-studies I came across these two books by arguably the leading expert on CSS, Eric Meyer: Eric Meyer on CSS and More Eric Meyer on CSS.

Armed with that knowledge, right now I’m working on a “from the bottom up” re-design of Freshly Squeezed. It’s gonna take me a while to work on the stylesheets and templates, but I hope to have it up and running real soon, maybe by the end of the month.
