New Website

If you come here then you'll have likely noticed the change in layout. I think it's a lot better than the standard MovableType format. I haven't changed over the archives or any other supporting pages yet, I'm still tweaking the main page. BTW, the main page was inspired by the Apache Harmony Blog [mackmo.com].

I was thinking of setting up a main site also, but I'm not sure how I want it to look. I obviously don't want a corporate type homepage, but I definitely don't want a cheesy "This is my personal homepage" type site either. I took a look at the Nullsoft Installer Homepage [sourceforge.net] and I think I like the layout, fonts, color coordinations, etc.

The first step I've done when creating past pages is to decide what you content is like. You have to decide if you're going to use it as a side business, offer things like tutorials or other services, provide topics of interest, do you have something you're trying to promote, etc. Based on what it is you're trying to offer, i.e. your content the shape of the page should evolve.
