I have spent part of this weekend playing around with the design of this site. I wanted to go for a more simplified look, and wanted to take advantage of blogger's page feature. I've created two new pages: "About me," that goes into a bit of info about why I started blogging in the first place, and "Project Archives," which has a better list of projects categories in specific sections like food, pets, crochet, etc. I'll be tweaking these pages a bit more in the next few days.
I also have a rotating image for the header. It appears that the sizing is slightly off in IE8 and below. I am aware of it, and am looking into it (something to do with the background-size not available in those browsers). A few other changes, the tag cloud has been condensed considerably, as it only represents tags that have been tagged more than 3 times. Also, I've brought back the Blog Archive list for quick blog browsing. In the future, I plan to also include a Charity page and a Recommendations page.
Anyway, let me know what you think of the new design.
Thanks again for reading and Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day. :)
[Update 9-21-10: I believe I fixed the sizing of the header for all browsers.]
