What’s with the all these design changes?

I’m sure there are hundreds, maybe thousands of you out there (well, dozens anyway) wondering why I’ve been mucking with the blog design. It’s a pretty simple story. The original blog design, or “skin,” for the site was called Paalam, a free theme offered to WordPress users by a private designer. It looked great and worked fine. Then WordPress updated its software, and the old Paalam skin started getting buggy. I put in an interim design until I could find something similar to Paalam, and then switched over to this new design, called SynthPop. Thanks to my good friend and web adviser, Nick Henderson of Henderson Graphics, for replacing the generic header and finally doing something I couldn’t do on my own: getting my original graphic header, which he designed for me a few years ago, back on my website.

Hopefully there will be no more abrupt changes to the site.
