As you’ve already noticed, I updated the look and feel of my blog, there were several things I was becoming unhappy with using the old layout.  The colors were getting old, the right column was becoming cluttered and I wasn’t happy with the organization.  So, I decided to switch it up.  So far I like the overall colors and layout of this new look.  I still need to work on the right column to remove some things I don’t want, and add some other things back in that I don’t have there.  Let me know if there is anything you like/don’t like/want to see/don’t want to see with the new look and I’ll take the comments into consideration as I continue to work on the new look.
