Richworks ready to get a phenomenal makeover
It has been a while since I caught up with you. You may have noticed the frequency of articles have declined for a while now. Nothing to worry as I am back on my feet and filled with ideas to share!
Also, this is quite a busy time for me now as I have to prepare for my examinations which are supposed to be held on February 2011. So, I will be briefly writing articles, perhaps once every week, but i assure they will be of high value. I usually am not a huge fan of writing articles which have already been dealt before. With the plethora of design blogs out there, chances are that the ideas for newer articles are running out but a thorough research into this matter will certainly prove me wrong.
Anyways, back to the main theme of this article. Well, as you may have noticed, I have been running this blog for over 6 months now and I am really grateful to the design community for helping me out throughout the journey so far in building this blog. A BIG THANKS to all of you :) This has compelled me to transform the blog into something phenomenal.
“A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step.”
So, i felt the need to take this blog to a totally different level. After reading blogs like AIGA, Fast Company, Design Observer, Retinart and many other influential ones, I decided it is best if I start writing articles which directly influence the design community and help build a better designer out of every individual. Enough of List posts and roundups; animal photographs and funny pictures…. It is time we evolve into something which motivates us into solving real world design problems and not to create internet memes :)
As a result, I am working a new theme as we speak (the first step) and the design of the theme has been inspired by many simple, minimalistic yet profound design blogs out there. I am not a full bottle on WordPress development so I had to buy a theme and work on it. I hope you will forgive me for this minor glitch of not embracing the true profession of design (time is a heartless #%$&* so maybe in the future, I can learn and design a theme of my own)
I shall upload this theme in a day or two and start working on it side by side :) So, please forgive me if you find any bugs in the structure of the theme or the interface. I plan to relentlessly work on building a great blog and publish thought provoking articles. I need your support if we have to make this possible.
I received a few complaints about the slowness of this website due to a lot of (annoying?) elements which are a bit too distracting. I can understand this issue and therefore I am working on that as well. More emphasis on writing great content and less emphasis on making money is definitely my motto (at least from now on :) )
Enough said! It is time to get back to business. I thought it would be appropriate to let you guys know that I am still alive and kicking! I have so many ideas for articles lined for this blog (scribbled on my scratchpad). I am continually working on collecting relevant information and them and compiling to publish them at the right time.
In the mean time, feel free to provide me suggestions and share your thoughts about my future outlook for this blog. Your feedback is the driving factor for this blog’s success (in terms of value added) and popularity. So, do not hesitate to share any criticism (positive or negative) with me.
Live Long and Prosper \V/,
