I've been playing around with the design of my Blog this morning - any thoughts, positive or negative, would be much appreciated:

Looks good.

You need to make the "About Absinthe" widget (lower right) wider so that it fills the rh column in the same way as the "Blog Archive" one does above it.

I'm guessing the home page is set to display all blogs from the current month which makes it quite long, might be useful to change this (if possible) to display only the latest one.

I also noticed that a couple of the pics aren't centred, but aside from that I think it looks great.

I'm struggling to adjust the About Absinthe column, Keith - I seem to be able to change everything else but not that.

Good idea about the homepage - I'll play around with it and I always make errors when pic centering - I hope to get next week's entry spot on. Embarassed 

Thanks for looking for me. Smile

The "about absinthe" widget appears to be laid out within a 2 column table, each column being allocated 50% of the available width even though there is nothing in the first column.

That may or may not help you at all, but there might be some settings for that particular widget that you can change.

Looks nice but imho I'm not keen on having the whole post taking up the main page. I prefer linking to the bulk of the post on another page, with maybe a little teaser paragraph on the main page. I can see the Archive list on the right but its not the same.

Just my 2p. Nice look and colours otherwise.

Interesting viewpoint Chris and much appreciated. I might have another play around when we're back from this weekend's travels.
