Since I created this site back in October of 2007, I have been using the same background (theme) for the blog with only a few minor tweaks. While this theme worked marvelously for me, I decided that after nearly two years of the same look and feel it was time to change the site up a bit. After looking at literally hundreds of different blog themes, I settled on the one you’re looking at right now. Ironically, this theme was created by Nurudin Jauhari, who also created the old White Oaks Blog theme. Talk about taking a big circle…
The structure of the new blog is what is known as a “magazine style” where the posts are grouped together as summaries. This allows the reader to glance at a particular topic and decide if the they want to dive deeper into the topic (in much the same fashion that you’d read a newspaper.) The articles are on all on top of the site, and the MLS home search, links, etc are all on the bottom. This layout is generally easier to navigate and more pleasing to the eye. Note that if you subscribe to the site via email or a feed reader, you shouldn’t notice a difference.
