New website

Selfie on Ilford HP5+ 400 film.

In the past months I’ve been working on moving my blog from a WordPress.com (hosted) to a WordPress.org (self-hosted) platform. As of today, that switch has been done. This also means that I’ve changed the layout and design somewhat. I’ve still tried to keep the design clean and simple, with a responsive user interface which is easy to navigate. I hope you like it.

There will be more minor design and layout changes down the road as the self-hosted solution will make me able to customize my website exactly like I want it.

During the transition from the old website to the new I’ve lost the “Gallery” functionality. I could transfer this but I intentionally decided not to bring it over to the new website. I’ll be rebuilding this in the future as a portfolio page. I’ve sadly also lost a few comments on some of the posts. I would love to be able to transfer this, but as it is, it’s not possible without transferring the entire website again, which would involve a lot of work.

If you have any feedback or suggestions for the new design and layout I would love to hear them. Leave a reply!

  • Very classy, clean look to your new website, Borge, I really like it. I’ve always got the thought in the back of my mind about moving to a self-hosted WP platform, so I’ll be interested to see how you get on. Cool selfie, love the grain!

    • Hey Katie,
      Thanks. Gotta love the film grain! I’m glad you like the layout. I’ve been thinking about the same thing for the last year, and during the last two months I’ve been working on it on the side. It takes a lot of time and effort. But now I’m in full control to do what I want – finally!

  • Your new site is so much easier and more enjoyable to read and browse through multiple posts. The color scheme and interface feels really calming and makes a great frame for highlighting your photography. I also like how the comment area integrates with the posting. It feels fluid and conversational, as the dialogue becomes an extension of the work you have presented in the post above. I look forward to seeing the portfolios. I can see them as a natural extension, and in a way your website becomes both portfolio and blog, integrated into one. Supert! 🙂 <3 <3
