Welcome to a New Look ProBlogger

Congratulations – you’ve found your way to a new look ProBlogger in its new home at

I started ProBlogger last September as a place to keep a record of the lessons that I learnt from blogging both for myself and for those I knew who were trying to make a living from their blogging. The blog design was primitive and I just tacked it onto the livingroom domain that I used for other blogs.

ProBlogger quickly turned into something bigger than I had anticipated and I soon realised that I would need to consider moving my 500 or so posts to a new permanent home with a more professional design. Rachel over at Cre8d Design was kind enough to take the project on and has put together what you see before you today. I love her designs and would recommend her services as a professional blog designer.

The new design is still new and we are making some final touches. I’m certain there are a few things we’ve overlooked so as you look around and make yourself at home please don’t hesitate to let me know of any problems that you might find. Also give you feedback on the design itself – how does it look in your browser? Any suggestions or critiques (constructive ones preferred) are welcome.

Don’t forget to vote for ProBlogger at the Business Blog awards here.

Lastly – if you have a link to ProBlogger in your blog roll I’d really appreciate you making an adjustment to it with our new domain at – also don’t forget to change your RSS feed for this site to this new one.

  3. Yellow on white (or opposite) is a contrast that makes text harder to read.
    Why switching to WordPress ?

    Darren, the new site looks good. No problems with the layout in Firefox. I’ve been using WP 1.5 beta 1 for about three weeks and I’m happy with the way it working.
