New Design

Over the past week I struggled with the decision to maintain my own infrastructure for my website. For now, I have decided to keep the backend the way it is, but I really wanted a much more compact and simple frontend for the site. I was inspired, in part, by some of [Tumblr’s](http://tumblr.com) offerings and by [Andre Torres’s site](http://notes.torrez.org/). It’s not as stripped down as Torres’, but it’s close enough for now. I was especially inspired by his compacting post title and other meta-post information into a single line. It was a great opportunity not only to learn more about CSS, as the whole re-design was, but to learn a bit more about WordPress’s infamous *loop*. Please let me know what works and what does not. And I am open to suggestions that make the site easier to read or use. (I recognize that my desire for simplicity might make the site harder to use for some.)
