For a while now, I’ve thought about a Vysnu redesign. It’s way overdue. This blue baby of mine had enough zing in it to win a few notable mentions, but it’s past it’s prime: Vysnu needs to be more web-two-oh-y.
To that end, here are a few plans. I’ll try to state only those that are definite at this stage.
- Move over to the vish.in domain. It’s shorter, more direct, less clunky.
- Do a rebranding of the site. The blog would still be the highlight, but try to write clearer articles, put more thoughts into words, and have a focus: Web development is the current favorite.
Move away from the Sig9 host, find a personal one. It’s been a fun trip, but all good things must come to an end. A week’s worth of spam comments at Vysnu is around 12,000. (Not a joke). Kill spam without resorting to comment moderation or CAPTCHAs.
- Serve ads. Intelligent, unobtrusive ones.
Upgrade to WordPress 2.0
There is no timeframe for these plans. Life is too cluttered still to venture into a redesign. Suggestions, if not lost in the miasma of comment spam, will speed the process along.
