When Ensight first loads up, a header image appears with the words ďbusiness & tech & JeremyĒ. No three words could be more accurate about the contents of what readers will come across should they stumble upon this site.
ďThe thought behind ensight was for a few of us to have a place to express ourselves in a... Well, in a low-stress environment.Ē is how Jeremy describes the reason behind this weblog on the siteís one month anniversary in July of 2003. Ensight falls nothing short of exactly that. Each of the different authors that contribute to the site from time to time expresses themselves quite well, all using correct grammar and punctuation in addition to their clear thoughts and even their ability to keep the majority of new and return readers entertained.
Each time an author posts to Ensight, the entries give readers the impression that thereís really been some thorough research done before anything is written. Enough is written in each post to get the point across, but more often then not, the authors will provide readers with additional sources to find more information about the subject matter at hand.
Itís not all informative technical/business posts, though. For example, Jeremy, one of the siteís main authors and creators of Ensight, is on the search for a better job, and through his research and/or experiences, readers are given tips and hints of what to do or not do in a job search in accordance to Jeremyís hands-on experiences. Posts like the ones regarding Jeremyís job search remind readers that the people blogging at Ensight arenít doing it just as robots that do nothing but write about the latest and greatest in technology; theyíre doing it because itís something they have an honest interest in and want to share the information they find with others just as curious as themselves.
The layout isnít a bad template at all, appearing to be a standard Movable Type template with the colors slightly changed. Each entry appears in a gray box, complete with all the Movable Type features - giving readers the ability to comment, find links to individual entries, and a way to track back to each entry. The archived entries are listed by category and by the month down the sidebar, where youíll also find the calendar of entries, link the author(s) visits, and other typical external links.
I couldnít find anything that I would change about this weblog. The design works for the purpose behind the site. The writing is easy to read and it keeps the readers interested. In all, Ensight does provide a huge chunk of insight to anyone stumbling upon it. The tech talk isnít geared strictly towards those who are professionals in that particular field, but more along the lines of the average person just wanting to learn more. Itís definitely worth a once over, and if youíre into the ever-popular tech world, itís definitely going to be worth a lot more than that.
The first thing I noticed about this blog is that it tells you right away what to expect. The subheader reads "business & tech & jeremy." The author of this blog is Jeremy Wright, a 24 year old tech professional. Knowing that Jeremy is a tech professional adds some crediblilty to this blog, which covers a lot of IT and other tech subjects. The simple, easy to read design also caught my eye right away and encouraged me to scroll down and enjoy this blog.
Whether talking about the job, musing about LongHorn, or ranting about a baseball game, Ensight is always a great read. Jeremy updates several times a day so the content is always fresh. I immediately subscribed to his RSS feed. One word of caution: Most of Jeremy's entries are pretty tech heavy, so if you're not down with the geek speak you might want to do some research before perusing this blog. If you're big into anything IT related, like I am, you'll be in comfortable surroundings.
The design of the site is really great. It's pretty easy to tell that this is a Movable Type blog, but that certainly isn't a bad thing. Jeremy has taken the time to customize his templates and make the blog even easier to read. The colors go really well together and are easy on the eyes.
Like I said before, if you're into computing, technology, or anything like that, this blog is definitely worth a daily read. The frequent updates and great design make this blog well worth the visit.
