Just a heads up, but sometime within the next month I’ll probably be changing the format of this site yet again. WordPress recently released their new 2012 theme, and I like what I’m seeing so far. It’s got a much cleaner look than the current 2011 theme, and several more options. The one that I like is that the sidebars have returned; in the current format, the only way to retain the same effect was to banish the “sidebars” to the bottom of the page, causing some double redundancy. (If you notice in the first page, I have the “Most Recent Articles” in both the sidebar and the bottom of the page as sort of a workaround.)
I also want to get a little ahead of the curb regarding mobile devices. The old 2011 format was always adapting its mobile platform as new mobile devices hit the market and new features (such as the WordAds) became available. My guess is that most of focus with regard to new features will now shift to the 2012 template.
The downside is that it is a little bland-looking at first glance. It looks more appropriate to food or photography blogs, methinks. But the again, so was the 2011 theme before I got around to customizing it. The upside is that the template comes with customized headers and backgrounds. I’m still trying to think up of a design theme, and whether I should continue with the current look (which has worked well for this site, admittedly) or try for something completely radical.
If there are any quibbles with the site during the design makeover, feel free to let me know and I’ll try my best to get on top of it!
