As you can see I've made a few changes.
I've been trying to clean up things a bit. I realized that most people don't dig through the archives, so I've tried to pick out posts and place them in categories in the margins. That way they'll catch the eye a little better.
I tried to construct some welcome pages that are practical and useful because I know a lot of people come here and are a little bewildered at first.
I've tried to streamline everything to keep the site moving fast....not a lot of busy stuff that bogs your computer down.
The blogger tool throws in a lot of extra spaces at times. I've messed with the settings but haven't got it quite right. Although some readers actually like the spaces, because it makes it easier to read on screen. The paragraphs are kept separate and you don't get overwhelmed by text. Reading online is a bit different than a book. I don't usually like reading off the monitor, but there are little things that can be done to make the experience more pleasant.
I tried to pick a soft background that's easy on the eyes.
Any other suggestions?
