I redesigned my blog this weekend with a focus on the text and photos – nothing else. I quickly found the last design to be incredibly restrictive when it came to any kind of custom layouts or reading more than a paragraph. Poor typography, narrow view for content, and the lack of contrast added up to a pretty unusable design. So, I scrapped it and rebuilt the whole thing to focus on dead simple basic. It weighs in at just over
100 kB 73kB (most of which is Google fonts) without a hero and the CSS is a measly 1.4k. Makes for a lightening fast experience!
I hope you enjoy the easier reading.
