New Look for the New Year

Just rang in 2011 at the Space Needle here in Seattle. They put on a spectacular fireworks show, let me tell you. Very much enjoying my new city.

The new year will mean lots of new features and endeavors for me and Icethetics. But more than that, a change in the calendar usually means a new look for this particular website. And right now you're looking at it.

Gone are the bright blue and orange in favor of a more muted color scheme and widened page in anticipation of a brand new signature feature of Icethetics. Details to come on that soon.

The new design isn't fully integrated yet. I still have some work ahead of me, but I wanted to get it launched right away. So if you see something that doesn't look right, I'll be getting to it.

If you have any comments on the new look or suggestions for new features, just scroll down and join the conversation.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the redesign and continue to make Icethetics a regular read in 2011. Happy new year!

By the way, don't forget the NHL has moved the Winter Classic back to 8 PM eastern tomorrow night. Looking forward to seeing both teams in action in their new sweaters. And the game should be exciting too!
