Ta Da part II

Well it seems I’ve had a slight change of heart. The original version of this theme was too cluttered for my liking with the two side bars on the right and lets face it, I really didn’t like having one on either side of the blog posts. So this is as good as it’s going to get. I am however going to widen the body to better space the posts and see if I can draw the bottom of the site up a few pixels. I’ve also dumped a few wiggy plug ins and installed better versions. The coolest of which has got to be the text cloud.

I’d love to say that I came up with it on my own but no, it is a plug in that I found on the WordPress site. It’s by Roy Tanck who did an amazing job. I mean really, it’s a piece of art.

So aside from these recent changes I’m basically done. I’m going to add a p
cture gallery, or flickr widget or something in the coming days, but for now tis is good enough for me.

Up next is the business site and Wife's blog. She’s been at this a little longer than I have and her site really is in need of an updating. I’m pretty sure that we’re going to run with Thematic on her site as well where it has really proven to have everything I’m looking for at this point. There are a few items I wish I could tweak but we’ll see what the newest version does in the coming weeks and cross the bridge when it gets here. If the newest version doesn’t have what I’m looking for (from the themeshaper forums it sounds as if it will) I’ll have to change the main design elements and keep restoring them when a new version of Thematic comes out.
