Refreshed for 2014
So you may have found G&G to be a bit sketch lately. Maybe you’ve come by looking for something, ANYTHING new, and instead found a “Maintenance Mode” screen. For hours. Or days. (Because a couple times I forgot to turn it off after working with this new theme on the backend. Oops.) Sorry, sweethearts!
But as you can see, all the downtime was because I was working on a refreshed design for 2014. It’s not radically different, because radical change requires radical cash. But after a good two years of banging my head against the wall with the coding requirements of the Thesis platform, I just couldn’t take it anymore. After several failed attempts with other themes and platforms, I have finally jumped to Genesis, and am using thesuper-customizeable Dynamik child theme. So far, so good!
I’ve been working on this new look a little at a time, behind the scenes. It’s still not perfect (oh, thumbnails, you have been the bane of my existence in every platform and theme! GRRRRR!), but it is shaping up. I decided that rather than continue serving you all maintenance mode messages, I’d just publish already, and tweak as I go.
So here you go…a fresher, newer look for G&G. The dust hasn’t settled, and not everything is as it should be, but it’s a start. Yay for that!
