I have moved the ‘recent posts’ to a better location. It was in the right sidebar about halfway down and probably buried under the other stuff. I realized that when I go to someone else’s blog I would rather see a list of their most recent posts before I see the categories they blog about.
This prompted me to switch the positioning of the ‘recent posts’ with the ‘categories’. I think the effect is much better and will help my readers to navigate better around the site. I am still looking at making a few more changes, including taking some things off the two sidebars and moving some other things around.
Feel free to make any suggestions or comments on the changes as I am welcome to creative and constructive criticism.
