New site has launched! With more Greeble AND more Monkey!

And you can tell with your very own eyes, things have changed around here! This is what I have been secretly been working on for months now.


Please tell me you like it. Otherwise I may have to kill myself. Because it’s been a shitload of work.

Not that it’s perfect. The posts are sort of running together, the archive pages are wonky, and NO – THE RSS FEED IS STILL NOT RIGHT!!! Argh. That alone is going to put me over the edge.

So, I will be making some tweaks over the next week, but this is basically it. The New Greeblemonkey.

I have a section to show off photos, a Twitter update area where I can easily send messages form my sassy new iPhone to give you up-to-the-minute updates on our life (P.S. I stole this idea from Secret Agent Josephine, thanks SAJ!!!), I kept the iLike section for my latest music obsessions… plus all my regular greebly goodness in the middle.

So check it out. Let me know what you think.

P.S. I really tried to do all the code by myself from the ground up on this site. But when you have become a paper-pusher, making a complex web-site all by your itty bitty self anymore is pretty much impossible. So, big, huge thanks to Eric, James and Rob for helping me figure this thing out, plus actually getting it to work in Internet Explorer. (Please, please, PLEASE tell me it’s working in your Internet Explorers.)

    Cool! I was worried for a sec when it was loading and the background was completely green. But then the white kicked in and all was right in the world. 🙂

    Love the new look. Congrats and well done!
    And even though I’m a sucker for white backgrounds, I do like your new palette. And I *really* like the navigation across the top, and the way you’ve clear content off the sidebar and placed it on separate pages.
    Looking forward to checking it out in Firefox at work (had to uninstall FF recently on my home desktop and haven’t installed it yet on my new laptop). Hope you’re doing something fun and totally unrelated to web sites today!

    Yes, it IS working on IE (and the page is lovely), and I am glad to see your face at the top rather than all squooshed at the bottom like before.

  14. aimee / greeblemonkey

    Know what is funny, MzWheezer? That tells me you were in IE 6 which I recently found out was ALL JACKED UP and was squishing everything down to the bottom, LOL!

    And I am still trying to fix my archiving problem which is why the site has gone up and down today!

    I love it! I bow down to your mad coding skillz.

    And I love your post about your iPhone. What a fantastically comprehensive evaluation!
