I have moved my blog from gsmodi.blogspot.com to blog.gsmodi.com. The blog has been redesigned to give it a great new look and feel.

Both these changes were awaited from a long time. I had wished to change my blog domain from a long time. The new domain sounds much better and syncs with my website: www.gsmodi.com. The blogging platform remains the same, ie blogger. I had thought about changing it to wordpress, but blogger allowed complete redirection of my old posts to the new custom domain.
The blog design needed a makeover from a long time. The new design is a 3 column layout which caters to the more common larger screen sizes. I found this layout here. A number of modifications have been made to the layout to make it look better.
Apart from these, a number of new things have been added to the blog:
- E-mail subscription option from feedburner.
- Custom search engine from Google.
- A favicon for associating an icon with the bookmarks.
- The new subscription widget from Blogger.
- Social bookmarking and other sharing button from ShareThis.
- Tag (Label) cloud whose code can be found here.
