New Blog Theme Coming In The Near Future

I have had this blog theme for 1 1/2 years and I think it is time for a change. Since I like custom design, I have chosen to code it myself to make sure it is exactly how I would like it.

Last night I had an idea for a new blog theme and figured I would start designing it. I sketched out the layout on a piece of paper and then fined tuned a couple of items. I spent all of today coding it, but it took longer because I cleaned up the code/css and made it run a lot faster than it was. I am going through each page to try and optimize the code for the best performance. I am working on it in my spare time, so my time is limited and will try to produce results soon.

Here is what I have so far, but it is still being worked on, so don’t judge it yet. Mainly I removed the sidebar (it will be below the “featured post”) and made a “today’s popular” section for the post that gets the most traffic for the day. I will be getting rid of the header image and the background, I am not sure of what I want to do yet. I think I am going to create another unique header but something a little better. I am NOT committed to any of this design yet, just trying it out to see if people respond to it.
