I didn’t really see this coming, though I probably should have.
A little while back I wrote that, in the blog’s new version, I’d be proudly displaying my daily pictures of Sunset Beach in the sidebar. This is still the plan. And with a much wider layout it’s absolutely feasible. But in the last few days of figuring out widgetizing sidebars (two of them), installing a few more plugins, deciding on all the right navigation aids and so on, I hadn’t really visualised how big a 240 x 180 image was. Stuck on top of the sidebar, I feel it’s becoming a focus point of the whole page.
Which… is not a bad thing, actually. I’ve been thinking for a while that my blog would become less focused on posts, and more on my current projects and photography. But I hadn’t fully grasped how the layout would have to change with the content. And frankly, I still don’t. This is very new to me, and I’m still feeling my way across the weird, wonderful landscape of Web design.
