When I launched this blog a few months ago I promised myself I would post at least weekly. Well, it is pretty obvious that I haven't. Even more, I was just able to do a few posts commenting on some news I found interesting.
So the inmediate question that comes up is simply "why?" . Well, there are many reasons why:
- Study comes first.
- Work comes second (well, it comes first sometimes).
- I couldn't find time to write (a sort of corollary of the first two) anything I liked.
- I hated the template I had.
From these bullets, there is one that can be (sort of) easily fixed. Creating a new appealing template that would make me want to post every week can't be that hard, right? Well, it is, especially if you are a designer-wannabe. It took me a long time to come up with a template that I liked, but I am pretty glad with the result.
In the meantime, I came across a plugin from John Resig with similar functionality. Since it's core implementation was far better than mine, I updated the jQuery FxQueues Plugin to a 2.0 version, by merging John's and my code (I also created a new example page and some unit tests).
So now that I have a template that I like there is one thing less preventing me from writing new posts. I have a few ideas for some posts and hopefully you will be able to read them soon.
Hope you like this new template as I do!
