As many of you may have noticed, I haven’t had a chance to update Outlaw Design Blog in some time and it has really been bothering me. I would like to apologize for this lack of work on my part. As some of you regulars may know, I recently got married, am buying a house, and having a baby soon. On top of all that, my WordPress Designers business has been really taking off. Not that any of this is an excuse to leave you guys high and dry, but it is a reason.
Apologize aside, I have been trying to find a new way to bring Outlaw Design Blog back to life. It seems that there are 1,001 design blogs online these days, so I have been trying to think of a way to do something new. One thing I have decided, is to do more video posts and follow them up with some written text. I also have an idea that will hopefully encourage more detailed comments and interaction on the posts.
This new blog format also calls for a new design. In the weeks to come I will be launching a new design that better suits the blogs new golas. Below is a sneak peak of the new design.
Aside from all the extra personal projects such as home buying and baby making, I have a number of cool things going on online as well. I thought I’d share some screenshots to let you guys know whats going on.
If you follow me on Twitter @DannyOutlaw you have probably already seen these mockups for my re-design of WordPress Designers. But, if you haven’t, you are in for quite a treat! This may be one of my most favorite designs I have ever done.
I also have one other project that just launched called PSD to WP. As the same suggest, it is a PSD to WordPress conversion site. My main reason for starting this site was that fact that it is so hard to find developers who will follow your design to the last pixel. I have an obsession with finding and maintaining a certain margin in my designs. When a developer doesn’t code my design down to the last pixel, it drives me crazy.
While I have a number of developers on hand, I constantly have a need to outsource from time to time. I have tried every PSD to WordPress site out there and most them are far from pixel perfect coders. While these guys may be much cheaper, you will definitely get what you pay for. We start at $400 for the average WordPress theme. Check out the site if you are on the look out for a good WordPress Developer.
