BOOM! Yes, SmartBloggerz is back again…And for next few months its all going to be AWESOME on this blog. I will tell you all that thing later in the post.
First of all, Do you see something new this time?
Right! We did a complete makeover of this blog and what you see right now is all new SmartBloggerz which now runs on thesis framework using a kolakube skin with custom modification. I have not yet completed the work on this skin completely. About 30-40% work is still remaining and I am working with my programmer/designer for the rest of the thing to be completed as soon as possible.
Yeah, that’s great but where have you been these days?
Many of you must be asking this question and many of you already know where I was, but let me start the story for those who don’t know what I was doing in past one month. Plus I will also tell you what’s coming new this time and why I went for a makeover for this blog (the whole process) etc. So let’s start…
“Blog Not Updated From February 12th” – What I was doing?
As I said some of you already know this i.e my newsletter subscribers and friends on social media sites (facebook and twitter). You probably know that I am a high school student and the reason that I was not able to update the blog neither with guest post nor with my own content were my final school exams. I went for a break from blogging and spent that time in the preparation of exam. My main subject exams got over on 22nd march and immediately after coming from the examination center, I pulled my blog down for the makeover.
Makeover? But WHY? – The Whole Process
Previously, SmartBloggerz was using the ultimate blogging theme but later I realized that SmartBloggerz needs a little change in the design considering the immense competition gathering in this niche. Also, on little research, I noticed that sites having better design were really appealing to the commentators thus increasing the community participation.
Though the ultimate blogging theme was having the ability to act like a framework and a skin could be built around it but while everyone was praising thesis framework and it’s advantages; I couldn’t resist myself from using it on my main blog. I was already using thesis on some of my niche sites so there wasn’t a problem in understanding it.
One more thing I did – Reinstalled WordPress COMPLETELY. Previously, smartbloggerz was having many issues with its mysql database, feed and the wordpress installation was like crap. It would be surprising for you to know that when I upgraded my previous wordpress version to 3.1, no changes came into effect! That was really annoying to me and hence I finally decided to reinstall wordpress.
And man! This re-installation work was really time consuming. I thought I just had to take the backup, delete wordpress, re-install it and upload the backup. But that f8c0k*ng backup file was also corrupted, bringing me to a very strange situation. I tried installing wordpress with that backup file many times and if you are following me on twitter, you may have noticed a couple of “hello world” articles being tweeted (thanks to Google’s feedburner social promoter feature).
Then by changing the way I was doing the re-installation; I was able to successfully get the blog again with almost all the required database files. Then I installed thesis framework and uploaded the kolakube skin for further modification.
After two days of tweaking, I opened my blog again for public viewing yesterday evening. There are still many designing work pending mostly in post footer and blog footer. I hope that will be completed in next 2-3 days.
Thanks To Guest Authors + Advertisers
I would like to thank the guest authors who even in my absence, submitted their guest post. And right now there is big backlog of guest post which I will try to publish one by one on this blog.
Also thanks to my advertisers, they DIDN’T thought of dropping their ads from this blog probably because the traffic remained almost the same (ahh..suprising to me also..) throughout this time. Surprisingly, two new advertisers joined this blog as an advertiser even when there was no new content being published.
So thank you again my guest authors and advertisers.
