I’d love to tell you that I was inspired to change the look of the website all on my own, but the truth is that my site was hacked! Some friendless virgin found a way to insert some malicious code into all of my blog’s files and directories. Luckily I keep good company and Kerry Taylor (author of SquawkFox) and her favourite German, Carl (and now MY favourite German, too!) were instrumental in helping me from having a coronary.
Actually, before I did that I bought a new domain and built a new blog from scratch on it and imported the content to see if it would come out clean. It did. Incidentally, the domain I bought was “BondsAreForLosers.com”, mostly because it was funny and I have been thinking that one day I will split the current blog into two parts, one for more technical posts and one for more mainstream posts. If/when that happens, BondsAreForLosers.com will be where the technical stuff will show up and I’ll keep WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com for the more mainstream stuff.
But, in the meantime, everything is almost back to normal. I’m slowly rebuilding the blog and tweaking it as I go, but man, what a project! This happened last Wednesday and since then I’ve been working non-stop researching how to fix it. I’m not a computer guy, so it took me a long time to figure everything out. I’ve probably averaged four hours of sleep per night since it began and I’m tired as hell.
So What Do You Think???
I decided that the blog had become a bit “busy” looking so one of my goals with the redesign was to make it cleaner looking and I also tried to find a relatively “light” theme with fewer scripts and whatnot that can slow down the page loading times. I’m actually quite happy with how things are coming together. But I would love your feedback. Ultimately this blog is for YOU, so if you have any requests for design or functionality, please let me know in the comments section and I will consider them.
