I think a small part of the reason I haven't written much lately is that I had grown weary of this blog's Facebook-like cram-it-in-a-blue-box visual design.
So, I stripped it down to just about the bare minimum, loosely basing its new look on a WordPress theme called Clear. Now the words have elbow room. Space to breathe. Lebensraum, you might even furtively whisper.
Customizing a WordPress theme is a tedious process, and while I'm not done yet, I'll pretend I am for the moment. Ta Da!
For reference, the old gal used to look like this:

Nice! Hmmm, I might need to hire you to help me fix up my music site, also hosted on WordPress. It looks good to me, but doesn't work for all screen sizes.

I agree. On the iPod Touch's display, the singing lady's eyes are too small to follow me around the room. They need to be big and googley at all resolutions.

I like it - you have a future on HGTV... just practise saying, "Clean lines! Minimalist! Zen-like! A blank canvas! A clean palette!" You'll need some throw cushions and a debonair/haughty attitude. Really tight pants wouldn't hurt either.

In my experience, really tight pants do hurt. Although, a modest selection of pastel throw pillows might dull the pain somewhat.
