I’m planning a redesign of this blog soon. I got some feedback on the overall layout and style. A few people commented that the picture on the left was out of place given the technical content of the blog. I tend to agree. One reason for the picture and the effect of the header text sliding over it was simply to play around and get more practice with CSS. The other thing I got comments on was the color scheme. I plan go with something much more plain and simple. Hopefully it will be ready in a few days.
I really like how customizable the presentation of WordPress is.
