Something is up!

You may have noticed that things have slowed down here a bit. I’m also diverting all interviews and keep answering mails to a minium for the time being. The reason for all this is that I am working on Veerle’s blog 3.0. The journey was long and hard!
Veerle's blog 3.0
It is hard to believe but I started the illustration work for the new *me* in the Summer of 2008. Now we are more than a year later and I finally have something that I am very pleased with. You can't imagine how hard it is to combine client work, writing posts, tutorials and working on a next version of this blog. Many iterations have past the photoshop canvas before I got to a point that I really stand firmly behind.
One that didn't make it
This is one iteration that didn't make the cut.
Currently I am at a point that almost all my templates have been coded. There is more to code because I have a few new things in the works. Personally I still feel there is a place for a blog that has *one* voice instead of multiple authors and posts that contains lists with 20 of this and 30 of that. We have enough of those! I hope that my new version will bring something new that will serve as a lighthouse in the sea of all the shouting. Most of those shout for attention and traffic and it is my goal to come out with something that is the opposite of that. Not sure if I'll succeed but hey at least I'll have tried :)
The next phase that I have to start is adding my templates to ExpressionEngine and making everything dynamic. Hopefully this will be smooth sailing and won't take up too much time. Speaking of EE...
Mitchell from Solspace is celebrating his 37th birthday with a special 37% discount on all items in the Solspace shop. You'll have to be quick as it only runs today. I'm doubting on Tag 2.6.5. Have any of you used it? What is the most useful EE add on from Solspace that you are using now?
That's the million dollar question :) I'm hoping to get it ready before I go to Leiden, NL for EECI2009, the first ExpressionEngine and CodeIgniter Conference. Not sure if that will be doable. Anyway things will be slow here until I am done.
