If you've visited this blog lately (via the live page versus the feed :) ), you probably will have noticed that there have been a few changes, some more obvious than others.
Firstly & most obviously, there's the new blog header, which was designed & created by yours truly. :) And then there's the addition of various buttons, some of which I nabbed from various places & then customized, and others of which are unique creations.
As the saying goes, "form follows function," so while I enjoy the design process, the ultimate purpose is to streamline content and make it easier for readers to navigate this blog.
I'm honestly nowhere close to being finished with the design & layout of this blog. There's a lot of work still to be done, & I frankly haven't had a whole lot of time to devote to this leisure activity -- So, as a matter of practicality & priorities, the work has been done slowly over time, & will probably continue to be done in such a manner until further notice. :)
At some point, I plan to add tabs and move a lot of the links to these areas to further de-clutter the page while still continuing to provide lots of detailed content. Although you wouldn't know it from looking at this blog's layout (especially in its earliest incarnations), I'm actually quite the design minimalist. I think the new logo reflects that intent/impulse.
Anyhow, thanks for your patience during the on-going face-lift!
