It’s been just about a year since I last updated the theme for this site, but I finally have a new design.
There are several reasons for the redesign, primary motivated by my desire to take advantage of some of the new features in WordPress 2.7: Paged comments and Threaded comments.
I also wanted to simplify the design layout of the site. This theme is what I found: Internet Music by Smashing WordPress Themes.
I modified it a bit to make it wider (I wanted more room for text) and to make it fit my style better.
I like that it’s not as visually cluttered as the previous theme, but it still manages to maintain essence of me (orange color and view of Seattle, for example).
I also took the time to update many of the pages I have. Pages are different from posts in that they live outside of the chronology of the blog. I uses pages for content that is subject to much change or is updated often. Some of the pages I moved to posts (the old links will automatically forward) and a couple pages I deleted.
