Jehzlau Concepts Evolution

This post is all about the evolution of my blog. I will write about the chronicles of Jehzlau Concepts by showing you what this blog looked like way way back before it had an ugly header. While I was browsing my old pictures here in my laptop, I found out that my logo before was worse compared to my present logo. More about the history of Jehzlau Concepts after the jump!

The chronicles of Jehzlau Concepts (Click the image for a larger preview).

This is my first header way back 2006. I really love this because it was unique (to my eyes before), even if it looks terrible (to my eyes now).

After a year, it was changed to this narcissistic header. These images were taken from the employee attendance system of the company where I was working before. Everyday when you log in and out, a picture of you will be saved in the database for verification purposes (Kung ikaw ba talaga yung nag login, so walang lusot! Hehe.).

During the Widgetbucks boom, I then changed my header to match the Widgetbucks ad. This ad network had higher CTR and eCPM compared to Adsense before, and I was one of the first WB earners! Yay!

By the end of 2007, a brilliant idea appeared in my mind. Why not create an ugly header to make it look more unique. That’s why I came up with this!

After receiving tons of comments that my header sucks and was tagged as the ugliest blog header in the entire Milky Way galaxy, including Andromeda, Triangulum and all galaxies inside the Local Group of galaxies, (and also inside the Hickson Compact group of galaxies and M81 group of galaxies) I came up with this cool header!

So that’s it! I now have a new header and my layout was tweaked a bit. I will now show you what are the new features here in my blog. Here’s a snap shot of the new layout, viewed in 1280×800 widescreen resolution.

This layout is proudly NOT W3C compliant and has 41 Errors found as XHTML 1.0 Transitional. In short, it has an invalid XHTML Markup! But I don’t really care as of now. (Because I’m too damn lazy to fix the errors *sigh*). As long as it looks good in Firefox, Chrome, Opera, IE and Safari, I’m fine with it.

Another cool new feature in this blog is the Quick Menu. A fixed menu at the bottom of my blog.

In this Quick Menu bar, you will find my Entries RSS, Comments RSS, Current Online Visitors, Privacy Policy, and a nifty button to get back to the top of the page.

And also, a magical and super oh-so-awesome feature of this quick menu is that it changes its options when you are viewing a single blog post! As you can see, a home page button now appears in the quick menu together with the comment button. Once you click the comment button, you will then see the comment box in a blink of an eye! Now that’s fast and extremely amazing!

Another great addition to this blog’s layout is the comments show-off box that is floating on the left of each and every post on the main page. Once you click it, you will be redirected to the blog post of where the comments were.

The final and most amazing feature of this tweaked layout is the blog’s description position. It is uniquely placed on the right side of the blog layout. Even if you scroll up or down, it doesn’t go with your scrolling. It remains there, fixed and as it is! I’m serious, try it yourself!

Whew! That’s all for the awesome new features of Jehzlau Concepts. Thanks for you time reading! If you love this blog post and you’re craving for more, why not subscribe to my RSS feeds via e-mail?

  1. First comment! Hehehe

    Bagong design/layout? Nice! Syempre blue parin ang color scheme. Ok lang kasi blue din ang favorite color ko eh. Its good to see the evolution of Jehzlau-Concepts.

    I like the fixed menu at the bottom of the page. Great job Jehz! More power to you and your blog! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Cool blog layout. Magiging suki na ako sa blog mo and I’ll subscribe to your RSS feeds na rin. maganda, pati na rin yung fixed div na nasa kanan. Unique idea. Kudos to Jehzlau! I’m ur instant fan!

  3. waaah! di ako ang first commenter.. huhuhuh.. ang bibilis nila ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    galing kuya, mas gusto ko ang layout na to. modern na modern. ang papangit pala ng header mo dati (peace :mrgreen: )

    pero pangit talaga.. hahaha. Ngayon oh so cool na! :mrgreen:

  4. I haven’t been a fan since the beginning of Jehzlau Incorporated (hehe)… but I did start reading since your “narcissistic header” phase. I actually still remember that header! LOL.

    • hahahaha! salamat sa pagdaaan sa blog ko dati fruity oaty! yay! oo nga na aalala ko parin ang narci header ko ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      yan yung time na nanalo ka sa top ten emerging influential blogs of 2007 at napadaan din ako sa blog mo..

      ah.. the good old days… :mrgreen:

  5. From beta to version 3.0. Ganda ng progression. Love the navigation at the bottom of the page, overall mas neater ang look. Pero ang selling point pa rin ay iyong content. I suspect may secret formula dyan hidden somewhere. :mrgreen: Yan I think ang main show… kahit miss ko na iyong wacky story like when you lost your precious sim dun sa naglaglag ng barya sa kalye. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • waaaaaaaaaaaah!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

      ur browsing my archives! waah wah wah!! nabasa mo pala yung katangahan kong nabiktima ako ng hulog piso gang.. ๐Ÿ™

      hehehe… oo nga eh. beta tapos naging 3.0, ang layo no? ๐Ÿ˜€ apat 1.0 muna.. pero mas cool tingnan ang 3 eh.. kaya 3 nalang :mrgreen:

      • Ibig ko lang pong sabihin malayo na narating ng blog mo in terms of design regardless of version number. ๐Ÿ˜€ Ganun din sa nilalaman. Pasensya na, kelan ko lang nadiscover may blog pala. It’s a good thing you’re one of my first reads in the blogosphere. E di siguro naglalaro pa rin me ng online games ngayon. And please don’t discount the value of that story, it’s one of the reasons nagsubscribed ako. Nagawa mong very highly entertaining ang isang pangyayaring nakakainis. Rare gift yun ano.

      • hahahaha! oo nga no.. nung binasa ko ulit yung hulog piso gang, natatawa ako sa aking nasulat.. naiinis ako at the same time parang sarcastic yung pag ka thank you. hehe, pero thank you talaga sa hulog piso gang kasi di nila kinuha cell phone ko ๐Ÿ˜€ we should thank always.. :mrgreen:

        parang yung sinulat ko na smart bro sucks, sinasabi ko astig na astig ang smart bro kasi pa wala wala ang connection, awesome masyado.. hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜†

      • eto yung gustong gusto kong line sa smart bro post ko:

        “Well, Iโ€™m not complaining, because I love smart, I donโ€™t have a high-speed broadband connection, only a putol putol connection, and I love it because it keeps me awake, and wait for Smart Bro to reconnect again. If itโ€™s disconnected, Iโ€™ll just click diagnose, and windows will detect whatโ€™s the error, if windows cannot detect the error, Iโ€™ll click diagnose again, until my Smart Bro will come back to life for minutes, and again, it will eventually be disconnected, so what I do is execute that โ€œdiagnoseโ€ routine again, then Iโ€™ll go back online, then offline, then online again. Was that amazing??? heheheโ€ฆ”


  6. Mas ok sa mata ko yang new looks ng blog mo. Mas maarte, I mas artistic…lol! Ang art daw, pangit sa mata ng di nakakaintindi.

    Uniqueness is an art. Di totoo na pag nanggagaya ka, ay mas kikita ka. Tingnan mo ang channel *, gaya ng gaya sa channel ** kaya di nananalo ng awards e….

    Keep it up!

    • hahaha.. channel 1 at channel 11 yan no!?!?! ๐Ÿ˜€

      wahehehe.. oo maganda pag unique, walang katulad.. kaya na isipan kong papangitin yung header ko.. hand writing ko yan gamit ang right hand ko kahit left hand me, buti nalang na spell ko parin ang jehzlau concepts :mrgreen:

  7. Galing mo talaga! :mrgreen: Sana may alam lang din ako sa programming. Wala akong alam e. In fact, I paid a web developer to develop my blog when I transferred to a paid hosting with a wordpress theme. โžก

    Pero mura lang naman ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. haha! i realized narcissistic header na yung inabutan ko nung nakilala ko blog na ‘to then. wow..tagal na din pala. but as usual, my blog sucks while yours continue to gain readership. sipag kasi mag gagagawa ng kwento eh. hahaha! cge, cge… abangan ang susunod na kabanata ng jehzlau concepts. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  9. infurrnez, gusto ko yung comment markers mo ha. di nga lang pwede sa kin kse laging 0 lang yun, mapapahiya lang me! hahaha!

    ang haytek naman po talaga ng layout mo, pang-genius lang at nanghihigop ng mga tanga sa html /xhtml/xml/sml/med/lrg na katulad ko. hahaha

  10. naabutan ko sayo yung ugly header na.. di kasi ako nag vivist ng blog mo dati, ngayon suki mo na ako jehz! :mrgreen:

    dami mo na palang nagamit na header. ang sagwa nung widgetbucks, mukhang pera ang dating ng blog mo.. buti naisipan mong palitan agad yun! haha

    • charlyn!! long time no seeeeeeee! ako naabutan ko pa yung first header.. wala pang header naabutan ko na eh, una pa ata ako nagka blog kay kuya tapos gumawa na din sya, ginawan nya ako ng header dati sa kaso wala na yun ngayon di ko na na update.. hayyyy.. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

  11. uy jehz! ang cute cute ng bago mong header! modern + stylish + web 3.0. hehehe.. pero mukhang mas astig na talaga ngayon, lalo na tong quick menu mo sa baba at sa kanan na description div na fixed :mrgreen:

    natawa ako sa linyang to:
    “The final and most amazing feature of this tweaked layout is the blogโ€™s description position. It is uniquely placed on the right side of the blog layout. Even if you scroll up or down, it doesnโ€™t go with your scrolling. It remains there, fixed and as it is! Iโ€™m serious, try it yourself!”

  20. I still think that the theme is not that as important as the content. Content is still the king. I would rather visit a blog (that has an ugly layout) with interesting articles than read a blog (that has a nice theme) with useless and stupid posts.

    I hate validating my code, because it could take much of my time before I can find the line/s that make/s it invalid. It’s annoying but nevertheless, I make sure that my code is valid.

    • ur right christian ๐Ÿ˜€ thanks for visiting my blog. yay! i love validating my code, pero for my clients. sa akin, masyadong maraming error (kasalanan din ng widgets at iba pang nilagay ko sa blog T_T ) kaya wala na me ganang mag validate.. hehe :mrgreen:

    Kahit na pang sobrang vein nung pangalawang header :), sobrang astig pa din ng feature na nadagdag.

    Sana po matuto ako nian ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Interesting read… Was your change of header to this “artistic” one also the beginning of your blog’s popularity? Or was it already receiving a lot of traffic even before that? What’s your most successful blogs?
