New minimal theme and writing with Markdown

My website now has a more minimal theme. I have become weary of the sliders, sidebars, and unneeded visual distractions that I have experimented with in the past.

The theme I have recently switched to is called “Decode”. Visually minimal, but responsive, built in HTML5 from the ground-up and ‘Retina-ready’ for those high resolution displays that will one day become the norm.

Images will be full-width where possible in the future, so that they can be better appreciated without the need for a lightbox effect.

I am also experimenting with Markdown to write posts without the distraction and code-mangling of a WYSIWYG editor. This post is being written in the excellent Byword app on my Mac, which can also post to WordPress.

If you’re reading this, it worked.
