33’Rockers V2 is now Live

-Warren Cardinal, new owner

So many of you have might noticed that I have got a new design up and running on 33’rockers. Past few days I have spent on debugging and optimizing the code for faster load times and cross broswer rendering. I think for the first time in my life I have got a design that looks perfect in both IE and Firefox. I am also updating Fauxed and Crystal and you might see them pretty soon.

Here are some salient features of the 33rockers V2

  • 1) Faster Load Times
  • Earlier it was about 120-130k per page on an average and now I have managed to squeeze it to 30-40k. I am also planning to shift the shelf effect in moo.fx to make the average page size under 20k. Look out for some more performance tweaks in the near future.

  • 2) Well Laid out Navigation
  • Browsing 33rockers is now a breeze because you can easily find the stuff you are looking for. You also see a fauxed footer in action that display’s the latest posts throughout the site. Very soon you will have integrating bookmarking (del.icio.us) and other nifty features.

  • 3) Valid CSS and XHTML
  • 33rockers now spits out valid CSS and XHTML (most of the times). It wasn’t so before and now it is. I know this can be hard at times..

  • 4) Better Search Engine Optimization
  • The new look of 33rockers is also better optimized for search engines. With Search Engine friendly titles and well laid out internal linking structure the job is more easier for the search engines. To tell you onething the indexing activity has picked up in the last couple of days.

  • 5) Better Content Presentation
  • I felt that the old design had a pretty bland content presentation. Its not so anymore. I can assure you that now on you will like visiting 33rockers more often for new content and ideas.

This was it. If you have any suggestions and ideas then please let me know. I would be glad to get things done. Hopefully blooging becomes more of a pleasure rather than an activity from now on.. Starting next month 33rockers will be holding two projects, one of which is a Campaign. So stay tuned to 33rockers and I bet 33rockers is going to be all the more rocking from today.

On an other note I have also submitted 33rockers for round 5 of 9rules submissions. I think I will be just praying that I somehow make it to 9rules simply because I LOVE IT…
