I've redesigned my site! If you followed me back when I used Jekyll this was a regular occurance and something that using a static site generator makes so easy.
There has been a trend of late of adding a dark mode to sites. From what I can see there are 2 main reasons for this. The darker page is kinder on the eyes when viewed in a low-light environment and with the growing number of users who desktops are running in dark mode all the time it reduces the contrast they experiance.
Quite a few sites are adding functionality to switch between light and dark mode (for example with react hooks) which I could have used here but for now at least I'm leading with dark mode.
My decision to drop light mode came around for a few reasons.
Following the example of resir014's design page I've put all the elements of the site onto a single page for testing and showing off. You can see this page here and I will be updating it as I add more features.
I have ideas on how to exampnd this site which I hope to get going soon and I welcome any feedback you have on the new layout.
