Going minimal

22 Jan 2013

It's been a long time since I wrote something on my blog, mostly because I was busy at work and in my spare time I preferred staying with my family instead of "wasting time" on the internet.

In the meantime the Octopress template I released eight months ago has been adopted by a few people and besides being very happy for the feedback received I felt that I needed a more unique look for my blog.

One year ago I moved away from WordPress and choosed Octopress because I didn't want to deal with unnecessary complication anymore.

I built a template because I wanted a custom layout for my blog, but now that a new Octopress release is around the corner and I should check and update the template code to be compatible with the new features, I don’t have enough time to do it, I don’t want to do it, even if it’s simpler than I think.

So I built a new layout for my blog customizing only the CSS of the default template because this surely gives me less freedom over the layout but it's a lot more easy to maintain.
It's still a work progress, but I'm quite satisfied with it.

Here it is, minimal, and white.
