New year, new look!

Today, I am rather ambitious. First off on my to-do list would be to change the Ikeahackers template and also get the Hack of the Year 2010 post done.

A new template has been a long time coming and I finally settled on how I want the site to look, at least for 2011. I’ve heard lots of comments and feedback for you and will strive to incorporate some of them. It still will be a clean, simple site without any fancy smancy. Why? I like simple and I think that works best.

But first off, I want to announce that Ikeahackers have its own little domain now. The more astute among you may have noticed. I’ve finally moved it from IkeaHacker.blogspot.com to IkeaHackers.net. I like the ‘s’ in hackers because this site wouldn’t be where it is today, if not for all your contributions. I also couldn’t get the more common, IkeaHacker.com as it was already taken. So IkeaHackers.net it is. I would love it if you do me this favour: if you have a blog/site which links to Ikeahacker.blogspot.com, I would be so grateful if you could change the link to the new url. A domain name change loses mega doses of link love and I am hoping to salvage whatever I can. So please. And thank you.

While I get the new template and the post underway, the site may look wonky. Do bear with me. I hope to get this done in a day, without shutting it down and annoying you with an “Under Construction. Please come back later” page.

Stay tuned.

    Thank you, Jules. While only a “new template,” it’s a huge upgrade — so clean and easy to read.

    Adding the “s” to the name is rather inspired too. That tiny but profound change makes the site feel very inclusive.

    Nice job. I wish you continued success.

  15. Get a 302 redirect from the blogspot site to the new one and Google will transfer all pagerank pretty soon.
