I started Jetson Green using the Blogger platform, but quickly came to realize that I wouldn’t be able to manipulate the design as needed. So I took all the articles and switched them to Typepad, the service I’m using now. I call that stage of the blog "Jetson Green v1.0." After about 10 months with this service, I’ve tried to tweak things here and there. Today, however, you’ll notice that I’ve given the old blog a new face. We’ll try it out and see how it goes. I’ve been wanting to throw both sidebars to the right side, and today I figured out how to do that. I have more changes in store, but today’s changes are likely the most visual of what you will see in the future. I hope you like the design, but as always, the #1 goal is to have good content…have a good weekend.
