As some may have noticed, I’ve made a few minor changes to the blog in the last few days. I’ve added new pages about instructing the barristers here at Renaissance Chambers, both for solicitors and members of the public, and about contributing guest posts to the blog. I’ve removed some of the old pages.

Do check out the relevant pages and let me know what you think (perhaps using the private feedback box below).

Of more interest to most readers, I’m also planning to change the look of the blog a bit. To that end I have set up a test site, with which I am now reasonably happy. Check it out if you are interested. The main reason for the change is to find a suitable new prefabricated layout that identifies the author of each post. And also I was a bit bored with the old layout. For long time readers, I think this will be the blog’s third major transmogrification. The last was in November 2009.

The proposed changes are not major: a slightly re-done header, moving to a simplified two column layout on the right hand side and the pages to go at the top of the blog above the header. I would like to alter the font to make it clearer to read but for boring technical reasons cannot attempt to do that until I have moved everything across. I also haven’t finished adding all the old information boxes to the right hand column, and unless you click on a particular post you are unlikely to notice that there are now widget boxes at the bottom of each page, which is quite handy for disclaimers, stats and the like.

Let me know what you think:

  1. I think the wider column from the 2 column format is better but I’d love a Facebook feed/like button so that I can spread the love on my Facebook page!
