Welcome to the new face of Screenhog.com. The subsequent redesign. The next generation.

Why has Screenhog.com changed?

Screenhog.com was running all right, but in the last few years, things have changed:

  1. I started using Twitter. Twitter is awesome. Not everyone thinks so, but for me, it's great! I can post up a random picture, say a random thing, and get instant feedback. Plus, people who know me from my days at Club Penguin, my current job at Hyper Hippo, or wherever else they happen to know me can just say hi! I like it! Unfortunately, it's meant that I started to look at Screenhog.com as a place to only put up important things. "Important" meaning big, monumental projects, or long, complex thoughts. And as I hadn't been as interested in posting those on the Internet, the blog suffered.
  2. Screenhog.com was a blog. Blogs, by nature, are constant streams of content. But sometimes I wanted to put up a picture or a piece of music and have it stay up for a while in its own dedicated space. The Wordpress blog didn't seem as friendly for that sort of thing.
  3. I'm horrible at editing websites. I come from a time when editing a website meant knowing HTML. There was no CSS. There was no browsing on mobile devices. Flash was a warmly welcomed part of the Internet and a main source of interactive entertainment. But times have changed. I wanted a website that I knew how to edit, but that browsers everywhere can actually experience cleanly. 

So, I'm trying this Squarespace thing. Will it work? I don't know. But I think I'll feel more free to edit and update it, and that's good.

Seriously, though, if you really want to hear from me more often, you should be following me on Twitter. You'll hear from me more often. I'm also generally funnier there.
