January 26, 2009 marks the third anniversary of this site chronicling my adventures in Grillin’ & Smokin’. I was not planning on doing anything in particular to mark this occasion. Coincidentally when I started looking at the new iWeb ’09 from Apple I saw a web site template I really liked. It was intended for sites with lots of photos like this site. The new template was clean and modern looking and I decided refreshing the look of the site would be a good way to mark the third anniversary of the site. This was not change for the sake of change I think if you look at the two screen capture below, you will agree the new template makes the photos stand out more and the page itself becomes more neutral. A bonus is the site loads faster too.
I’ve got the site about half switched over at this point and hope to get the rest of it done in the next couple weeks. In the mean time you may notice a few flukey links on the new style pages. Some of the pages you browse will still be using the old template style during the transition, but they should work just fine.
