New Look and New Reviews Section!

I finally got the new theme for DadThing done, and am happy with it!   In fact, I’m seriously considering starting a web design business.  In addition to DadThing I have also also designed the following sites:

All of these were designed from scratch…no FrontPage or DreamWeaver or any of that crap…just plain ole’ HTML and CSS typed in Notepad.  😀

Let me know what you think about the new DadThing design in the comments section!

Oh, yeah…I have also started a new Reviews Section at DadThing.  In the Reviews Section I plan to review items that can either be used by a Dad, or their children and family.

I’ve already got quite a few interesting products to review on the way, and and will continue to pursue other cool guy products.

If you have a product that you would like me to review, please email me at jared(at)dadthign(dot)com

    Very nice Jared! I took a peek at the other sites you’ve done as well and was equally as impressed. You’re a closet coder, man!

    My experience with css is that an omitted comma or one too many semi-colons and you’ve got one hell of a mess!

    You’re very brave.

      @Ed: Yeah, I had quite a few messes to work out when I first started. But, after I got a technique down, it really is not that hard. 😀

    It looks great, very clean and simple. I like it a lot! I am going to add you on my blog fathers section today. If you do go into web design let us know. I am always looking for someone to help breathe some life into my blog!

    Wow. Jared this is awesome! I love the header photo. That little guy melts me every time! (Ace. Not you. No offense or anything :p)

    • Jared says:

      @Honeybell: Thanks..I really like that photo too! It is from our most recent family pictures. I have many more from that photo shoot to post in the very near future… 😀 (No offense taken…I’m used to Ace getting all the attention. 😀 )

  5. I recently re-launched my blog (, decided to make the switch to wordpress so I know all to well the fun of working with CSS/themes. Must say your blog looks great. I love the clean look!
