February 2018 Update

Hey there it’s me Elmer 🙂 Just wanted to give a quick update to those who have been to my site atleast once in the past. Last January 31, the domain has been changed from https://elmerbalb.in to https://www.elmzarnsi.com/. The main reason for this is that I wanted to use my name domain only for my portfolio and the existing blog content to have its own site which is this new domain.

No content was deleted and I did the necessary 301 redirects from the old url so that no 404 errors occur. Accessing my old domain should point you here. Google is still in the process of updating the old urls on their search result pages so there’s that. The redirects will stay for about 3 months and after that I will only use https://elmerbalb.in for my own portfolio purposes. So if you have any existing bookmarks, please update them to this new domain.

The site also had a BIG makeover. After almost a year with Material Design, I’m now moving away from it and going for the ‘content-first’ approach. Which means that I will focus less on site aesthetics and more on my audience and readers. This also allows me to offer new ad placements for potential advertisers that don’t disrupt content readability. I also created my own logo which looks okay.. I think :O

So anyway that’s all I wanted to say! Like I said, this is just a quick update so if you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to comment below or contact me. Thanks!
