I owe my long-overdue site-design update to ScaryLittleMonkey and his tremendous Visitered WordPress theme.
For a while, I’d been wanting a theme that had user-selectable backgrounds (see them above). And I happened upon this theme a few weeks back. So, with a little spare time here in Virginia on vacation, I took the plunge and made the switch. A few hours of subtle-customizing later, I have my new design.
Some day, I’d love to make my own theme. But, I hear it’s not easy. So, that will have to wait.
For now, I’m sticking with Visitered. And benefiting from the work of others.

I noticed is about 1:00 last night, but didn’t say anything. I often test new things (like a theme) at about that time, and so I didn’t want to comment until I say that it had lasted for a few hours.
And I chose blue. Nearly went with the dark grey, but it seemed a little too close to my own.
Love the new design. Clean and standards-compliant I’m sure. Maybe we should do this for the new arbor.edu!
Thanks for the comments, gents.
I like your blog designs/layouts as well.
