I launched The Citizen Insane blogging project nearly six years ago today. Back then, I was an emotional college sophomore who had no idea what he was doing (and I still don’t). Since then, the site’s undergone half a dozen facelifts, traveled across multiple platforms and changed drastically.
As this is an anniversary of sorts, I decided to redesign things from the bottom up. Whereas previous versions saw me dressing up like legitimate journalism dot-coms, I decided to strip away the mimicry and tailor the site to my tastes and schedule now.
This minimalist theme has a dual function: To provide you with an uncluttered means of reading, listening and downloading, and to lessen my responsibilities as a blogger, allowing more room for brevity and simplicity.
Or maybe I just thought it looks cool.
Regardless, navigating the site is now meant to be as intuitive and superfluous as possible. To anyone visiting for the first time, welcome. To those who have supported me for the past weeks, months or years, thank you.
No filler, no clutter, no bullshit.
