Nothing More, Nothing Less: A Visual Update

I’m a young man. It’s pretty cool. I have the chance to screw up a lot of things before I run out of chances to screw up a lot of things. So, why not take a leap?

This post is about a visual update, but it is also a personal update. You see, the site is going through a trim down. The previous design, while short-lived, was yet another stage in personal development. It was a clean, feature-filled distillation of a long-running dream to create this very blog. But the new, minimal design is a trimming down of the extraneous to what really matters: substance.

In addition, the new design is an attempt to follow the development of the Internet in tandem. People are reading on phones, tablets, laptops and the like and design features like good typography, large images, and scalable interfaces are more important than ever. This design, in my humble opinion, hits all those bases with aplomb.

So I hope you enjoy the trip. What you’re witnessing is one man’s journey, but I hope that through the mirror of your reading and reflection, you take a bit of a journey yourselves.

Hello ervrybody!

So the blog dump will continue this afternoon, but in the mean time I am experimenting with design. I know, I know, I probably should’ve waited to publish the site until the design was finalized, but I’m a damn fickle person when it comes to my blog.

Anywho, your patience is appreciated while I wrestle with the bear of web design and in the mean time, enjoy an article or two! Leave feedback! Conversation breeds success and I want to know what interests you.

Just in case you were curious, this is me. Though I’m usually in color.

And just like that, I’m back!… Temporarily. The blogging bug is a powerful one indeed. Still on my “vacation” (see previous post for details) and building up steam for the next forever, but couldn’t stay away.

As some of you may recall, the original iteration of this site comes from Tumblr, but in an effort to expand the flexibility and design of my site, I’m slowly creeping on over here to WordPress. All posts that appear on the Tumblr will also appear on here and vice versa, but in the mean time I am going to “dump” all my previous posts on here systematically over the next couple of days.

Feel free to leave comments or tips on any post. Be what you wanna be, starting now.

Goin’ on “Vacation”

(Note: For those of you who are new to CFiST, I have been pretty active on the Tumblr iteration of the site for a few weeks now.)

For several weeks now I have endeavored to fill each day with ambition; taking steps toward my life goals. But It would be hypocritical of me to advise about burnout and not take my own advice.

In that spirit, I am taking a week long “vacation”. I will still attend work, I will still meditate, I will still endeavor to preserve the basic tentants of my lifestyle, but with all other things (coding, language learning, blogging, productivity, music, searching, and scheming) we will back after this word from our sponsors.

In the mean time, enjoy this rainbow pigeon.

Have a great week folks. Be what you want, all of it, right now.
