I’ve messed with the blog design temporarily to try out a new look. After receiving some great unsolicited design advice from a friend who actually works with websites, I’ve been considering hosting the site myself and getting a new domain, if only for greater design and feature flexibility. Let me know what you think about the new look (which, coincidentally, shares some features with the design mock-up I’ve been looking at).
And some brief questions for those of you who don’t use a free blog-hosting service: is it worth it? What are the hassles like?
