OK, this is my first post that has any real value to it whatsoever… So far I have the following issues that need to be resolved:
- Nobody is reading this
- Posts do not have the day of month in the date
- Permalinks are ugly (as in, without alibi)
- About, Contact, etc. pages are using the blog page template and are showing category, date and comment information. Just fixed this one – w00t!
- The overall appearance of some of the elements on page do not look very distinguished. This is noticeable on some (read: crummy) LCD displays.
- The search widget is ugly (see #3)
I’m sure more will become apparent as I get deeper into this – but for just starting out it’s not that bad.
- I’d like to edit my sidebar widgets so they appear to be separate boxes form each other. I want them to have rounded corners, and ideally, be collapsible.
- I want some widgets on the bottom of the page. Recent posts, maybe my Flickr photostream, etc.
- I need to register a domain as well. I’ve heard good things about 1and1 but right now it’s not in the cards (i.e. bank account = empty)
If anyone happens upon this post please feel free to hit up the comments to offer any suggestions or notify me of bugs you find. I’m taking a kind of continuous improvement approach with this so hopefully with a little luck, a few magic beans, and some late-night geekery I will have a decent site up soon.
