For those of you who have followed this blog over the years, welcome to version 3.0! This site has been quiet for the past several weeks while it underwent an overhaul, which included both a new, custom theme and a WordPress upgrade. I also used this time to take a break from posting and regain some focus. Sometimes, one just has to wait for inspiration to write about prosecuting patents.
What I Hoped To Accomplish
My goal was a cleaner, brighter, and less cluttered site that was more easily searchable. There is a lot of useful content on this site going back several years, but it could be a chore to find with the old theme. After all, the posts you find here are intended to be a reference of sorts.
In addition to improving the overall navigation and function, I have endeavored to enhance the searchability of this site. So, I’ve added a site search widget to the sidebar and an enhanced Navigation Bar (above) with specific tabs for some of the more popular topics from the past three years. And, for my many international readers, I have also added a translation widget to the sidebar.
To make sharing posts a little easier, I have added to the end of every post sharing buttons that permit easy email, Facebook and Twitter sharing.
To share a few non-patent law related links that I think might be of interest to my readers, along with some links to the technology I use, I have added an informational footer below.
Finally, for my readers who use Facebook, I have created a Facebook page for this blog. You can become a fan and follow the blog by selecting the Facebook link in the footer.
Now that the overhaul is complete, you can expect a return to new posts on a more regular basis. As always, I encourage you to keep up to date by grabbing the RSS feed or by subscribing via email. The easiest way to do that is to select the appropriate link in the “Subscribe to PatentablyDefined” section of the sidebar.
May I Ask A Favor?
I hope that you find the posts on this site both interesting and useful. If you do, please spread the word to your colleaguess and friends. After all, the more the merrier!
