Almost 6 years ago, the Kitces.com website launched, and along with the new site, this Nerd’s Eye View blog was born. At the time it was launched, I was quite proud of the site. It was “sharp” and “cutting edge” for its time, and early readers of the blog were quite complimentary (and I’d like to think they weren’t just being polite!).
As the years have gone by, though, the technology underlying the site grew more and more aged, and failed to keep pace with the great leaps in blogging and website platforms that have exploded forth since 2007. The visual look of the site began to feel a bit dated, and the explosion of mobile devices turned what was already a “not very large” default font size into reading that was painfully too small.
Accordingly, the time had come this year for an overhaul to bring the Nerd’s Eye View up to current standards, and I’m thrilled to announce that today is the fresh launch of the new site. You’ll see a number of changes immediately, with many further enhancements to roll out in the coming months as well! I hope you enjoy what you see, and please don’t hesitate to share your feedback (good or bad!) as we work out the final kinks!
