Time to change!

I like to change things from time to time around here, and it’s that time again.
I know i’ve been absent for a while because i have been quite busy with work, but not also work, i’ve been also creating a new blog!
Over the past year i have been wanting to write about different things other than graphic design and advertising.
But i would not do that because some of those things had no place to be in this blog.

So, it’s a great pleasure to me to introduce you to my new blog Urbanita.fr a blog about the urban culture, shopping, lifestyles and cinema.

This blog will not be in english, only french. Why? because i live in France, i also speak french and i have many visitors from french speaking countries and a lot of people ask me to write in french.

So as for this blog what will happen to it from now on? Well it will keep focused in advertising, graphic design, animation and anything visual like before but the main thing that will be leaving this blog are movie reviews, they will be from now on on my other blog.

I hope you all enjoy Urbanita.fr as much as you enjoy Kiedis.fr :)

Thank you!!

New theme

There’s a new theme on the website, i’m still tweaking things so if anything look weird it’s normal.
I hope you all like it, i try to keep it simple and readable. I know everything is not perfect but i try to do what i can.
If you see any bugs leave me a comment! thanks!

PS: i created new categories, this means i’ll have to tweak most old posts to sort them in these new categories, and there are nearly 477 posts in this moment on the blog so i’ll have to be very patient -_-‘

Top 10 articles and stats of 2009

One more year is over and with the new year we get the stats of the past year.

The website grew up a lot in the last year, actually it is four or five times bigger than last year… this is also why i’ve been doing some modifications to get a better database that works faster and can handle more people.
Some interesting facts i found out were:
– Firefox wins the browser battle with 51 % Internet explorer 24,85 % Safari 14,68% Chrome 5,43% Opera 1,70%
– Most people came from: Google, Twitter, Networked blogs, Hellocotton.fr and Facebook and other blogs.

– The people who visit the blog speak mainly three languages… first english, second french, and then spanish… Actually the first country with the most visitors here is France, then we have US, UK, Spain, Canada and Brazil (out of 117 countries).

This leave me with a question, should i do a french version of this website? the french visitors are actually a lot (they are nearly as much as the english visitors)…and some agencies even asked me to publish contests for french people around. So, i’m kind of giving it a thought.

Anyway i decided to make a list of the most visited articles from last year on this blog and share them with you all.
Enjoy!

New server! Faster website!

Some time ago i started having little problems with the old database on this website.
It was quite slow, it crashed often and was not allowing many people to get in at the same time.
This website got bigger since the start and i decided to upgrade it and get a new server.
So i spent a couple of hours transfering all the database and files…and doing few changes here and there…
You may not see all the changes but you may notice that the website runs a lot faster than before.
I hope you enjoy it :)
