Well, as you can see folks, this site now has a totally new design and layout.
I’ll still be tinkering with it over the next few days but right now what you see is pretty much what the final version is going to be like. I still have a few more things to add (especially my blog rolls) and a few minor tweaks but overall I really like the new design. I’ve also slightly modified some of the categories (of my posts) to better sort some of the things I’ve been writing about of late.
Although it LOOKS much different now, all of the links to the various articles and pages are exactly the same so any of you who have posted links on FB or your websites, etc; those don’t need modified. Also I know it’s fairly obvious but the URL of this blog hasn’t changed one bit (and won’t change).
Clearly you can see I’m running a different name in the banner. Am I still “more Romanian than you?” Of course I am! LOL – you even had to ask? I certain am who I am but it’s time to kick this blog up to the next level. It’s time to use more graphics and multimedia and it’s time to cover a wider view of things than simply “oh golly an American lives in Romania”.
Again, ALL OF THE OLD MATERIAL is still here, exactly where it was before – nothing has been deleted so please don’t panic. I will still be writing some articles “like I used to” on things like grammar and Word of The Day and basic introductions to living in Romania, etc.
However, the next big step to this blog (beyond the layout change) is I am going to start featuring more content in the Romanian language. For those of you who don’t speak Romanian (and don’t want to), again, do not panic. There will always be some English on here. But I can’t really say I’m truly Romanian if I don’t write the language, can I? Nah. So that’s exactly what’s going to happen here soon. I know you all have seen me speaking Romanian in newspaper articles and TV interviews but so far I really haven’t written in Romania, at least not without some help. So time to get out of my comfort zone, so to speak, and head into new waters, writing with a difference “voice” and tackling different issues.
Wow… okay I’ll wrap this up here just by saying, yeehaw, hope you like the new site design!
