It's finally here! After a couple of months of promising you all that this was coming soon, I've finally managed to get it done. That said, sticking to the old 37Signals philosophy of "Release early and often" - there's still a lot to do. I'll be polishing lots of bits of the site over the coming weeks, so if you see any bits that don't look quite finished - then that's why!
So What's New In John.ONolan.Org V2.0?
Well other than the pretty new colours, I've also added a few new features! The homepage is now much more of a blog rather than the "about me" style page that it was previously. From the homepage you can now navigate to the 4 main categories, business, finance, marketing, and resources. However you can also reach a full list of all the categories and subcategories using the new dropdown menu in the top right corner of the page.
I've also added a new publication page, available in the top menu above the site logo, where I'll be keeping (and updating) a list of all my guest articles and features on other sites. This section was inspired by Elliot Jay Stocks' site, and should turn into a great collection of stuff as time goes on.
There is now a contact page! Previously I just listed my email address on my about page, but I really love getting emails from all of you so I wanted to make it as easy as possible for everyone to get in touch. Just fill in the form, hit submit, and I'll try and reply to you as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours).
Archives have also been added to the top navigation section so that you can still see a list of the 30 most recent posts without having to go into each category individually. But don't worry, you can still search from the search bar which is now located in the footer of every page.
Advertising has finally been added to the site, which is powered by BuySellAds, and is currently priced at the very reasonably mark of $15 per month. It'll take a little while for BSA to build up some stats on my page impressions, but I can tell you that this site got 40,000 page views in August
Finally, threaded comments have finally arrived! So you can now reply to all comments individually - and I've set up a much more prominent area for people to subscribe / follow news and updates! :)
What Do You Think?
I'd love to hear what you think of the new site, and any further suggestions that you might have for improvement!
