Blog revamp 2012

As you can see, I’ve decided to give the blog a bit of a revamp. Or “quite a while of a revamp,” as doing this took longer than expected… not being satisfied with the various other WordPress themes I tried, for starters. Anyway, long-timers might recall I’ve used this “black and white” theme before; I wanted something a bit lighter than the old theme.

The biggest change, of course, is that the blog now is on the main page of the site, instead of under the “/blog” subheading. Given the blog gets most of the site’s traffic, plus my desire to emphasize that aspect of my writing, I figure it makes sense to move it. The old front page is now an “About Me” page, which I’ve also revised and updated.

There’s a new header image, as well, which I hope is better looking than the old one. The navigation bar’s formerly separately-listed categories are now under a “categories” drop-down menu. Finally, I’ve split the sidebar’s links into categories for convenience. The RSS feeds for the separate categories are still offered in the sidebar, however, if you only wish to follow the technology-related posts, for instance.

Let me know what you make of the revised site…
