It is surprising how different everything looks after an airing out - and apparently a blog is no exception. I couldn't figure out how to salvage my old template, which had me stalled pretty much forever. I finally decided to revamp completely, and love the new green look. Too bad I didn't clean house before the stash flash. I got rid of almost all the blog bling, except for my beloved weatherpixie. I am on the fence about the FO flash flickr badge; I would likely switch to the typepad gallery pages if uploading to them weren't so annoying. At least I've sacrificed my rock and string flash flickr badges, though you can still see them on the about me page. The flash badges satisfy my general indecisiveness, but become annoying in aggregate. The other satisfying thing was removing the WIP section - as I got faster, it didn't get updated enough. Ironically, the two projects in that category became my only UFOs, ever.
