In general I don’t meddle with things unless they’re broken, although with Automattic releasing multiple versions of WordPress in recent months, it’s a struggle to upgrade to access the new features, as well as not upgrade too quickly in case any gaping security holes are disclosed.
I’ve performed some minor changes, which may enhance your reading experience.
I’ve revamped the “About Andrew” page, as you’ll see shortly.
The “Long Bio” page has some redudant information (already included in the “About Andrew” page). The main reason why I’m keeping it for now is that it’s built up a Google PageRank 4. So I’ll likely do a 301 redirect to better use that PR.
New on the pages tab is “Worth Reading” which I’ll continue to add to when I have time.
I’ve also moved the RSS feeds and my new Podcast RSS feed to a more prominent location, so readers can access them more easily, especially since I’ve removed the mailing list some time ago.
I’ve included a video intro. Which should be interesting and personalizes the connection with readers.
I did some trials with embedding it on the front page, but this existing template will require some PHP tweaking and possibly cookie handling to display once and disappear (at the risk of overstaying its welcome).
Tweaking your blog can be fun, as long as you don’t get too obsessive about it…
