New Weblog: Starling Fitness

Filed under: — 11:45 am

My wife, Laura, and I have started a new weblog: Starling Fitness will focus on fitness, diet, and health topics. Laura does most of the writing. The site has been online nearly a week and already has lots of content.

The site runs WordPress using a custom template I designed. It’s my first experience creating a fully CSS-based layout (no tables!) and it seems to work pretty well. I’ll be refining the design and fixing a few details here and there, but I’m happy with how it turned out. I used the Faux Columns technique to make the columns equal length and add some minor flourishes to the column borders.

Check it out and let me know what you think, or any browser errors you encounter. Now I just need to do a proper CSS layout for some of my other sites—this one for example.

    I took a brief look at this other blog you have mentioned and it looks nice and clean. Congrats.

    I would like to offer you a word of warning, though. Firefox is gaining market share, and can no longer be ignored. That, in itself, isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it interprets CSS a little differently than IE. I know that because my website looked all messed up in Firefox. Your site looks fine at first glance, but I only looked at a few pages.

    Good luck.

  2. I use Firefox almost exclusively, so I’m much more likely to make the mistake of not testing enough on IE…
