I Sheep Things 4.0 Launches

Well I’ve finally gotten tired of my “busy” look of the last version of my blog.  Can’t even remember what it looked like before then.  Decided I should pick something new now that there is an expansion coming out.  This is why it has the Oh-So-Clever name of being version 4.0.   I wasn’t really “feeling” the dark and destroyed look that most cataclysm themed blogs bring about.  For now I wanted something simple and yet “bridged” the gap from my last layout.  Invested in one of the most praised premium themes out there for its flexibility and clean code so hopefully when I decide to do another overhaul, I’ll just tweak up the code and be set.

Still there is more work to be done but its at least to a point I’m not embarrassed to put it on the web.  The site load speed needs some help though.  I’ve cleaned up the database a bit and have some ideas how to further optimize. Looking into what I can do to overcome that hurdle without having to switch hosting providers or shell out more money.

    Well, the site loaded more quickly this time around, so v4.0 seems to be good so far.

    Yeah I’m really concerned now with overall site performance. Its long overdue for a cleanup. I deleted some 400 Keyword tags from the database as well as reduced the background graphic elements of the site.

    I’m sure I’ll give it a fresh coat of paint in the coming weeks but I figured a stair stepped approach would be best and I wanted to launch with the new patch….”just because”.
