A1 Sneakers Undergoes Major Redesign

If you’re a common visitor of A1-Senakers.com, you sure have noticed the drastic changed to the appearance that I’ve brought within the first days of 2010. That’s because I just moved all the old static html pages into a fresh and dynamic WordPress blog.

It really was time for a change. The site’s been running with the same template since 2005, when I was still a young beginner in the whole world of website building. Back then, html was a huge mystery and I was thankful I found a decent template. I managed to customize the hell out of it, but all in all, it pretty much sucked.

I first decided to experiment with blogs in 2006, with another site of mine. The result wasn’t what I expected and I kept using the time proven html pages that have worked for me so well. I added a blog to A1-Sneakers in 2008 and it got some attention, although I didn’t focus on it.

However, in the last couple of months, I started reading more of Rosalind Gardner’s stuff and blogging all of sudden became much more interesting. With all the plugins out there, I can now do pretty much anything I can think of.

So, in December last year, I rolled up my sleeves and started working. All the old pages are now database driven and the layout is a lot more clean and friendly. I merged the main site with the blog and now they are both under the same interface.

There’s still work to do, but so far I think I done a pretty good job. (Or did I?) Drop a comment in here and let me know what you think.
