It was time for a much needed blog overhaul the old design just wasn’t working in many ways.
in watching stats on many things it just wasn’t doing the job.

SO, out with the old and in with the new. I’m trying a new highly customizable theme for better SEO and design. I’ve simplified and added some things to help with flow. I Borrowed an element from my friend Michel Fortin’s Blog. I loved how he had the recent 5 posts after each article post as well as the signature box. I still have some tweaks to go but it is much better I feell and I’ve already gotten some good feedback.

I’d love to hear your comments if you’d like to post them. And as I’ve always said I take good and bad comments, cause if I don’t know it’s broke I can’t fix it.

    Much better Frank, much better.

    That “Search” widget has my interest piqued. Is that custom or a plugin ?

    You might also add the Subscribe to Comments plugin, as well as a Contact Form plugin and while you’re at it a Related Posts plugin and a Must Reads section would be nice.

    Check those out on my blog and email me if you’d like.

    Hey Frank,

    Mike, I got the script from here. http://www.barelyfitz.com/projects/tabber/ I’d actually seen this on a different blog theme and found the css there.
