SITE

So what tends to happen this time of year is that I rebuild my site for whatever reason I can come up with. It's what keeps me engaged, finding cool things to do, solving problems, and playing around. This time, I kept most of the basic style of my previous site but amped it up a notch with more flash.

So if I have a new site, new style, new domain…you'd think I'd scrub all my old content. But that's not exactly true. Where's all my old content? No worries, it is safely tucked away. Due to the site refactoring, the old content remains in it's old domain: http://blog.traeblain.com/. All your old links will work, and it shouldn't be that big of a deal.
