Another big thing you will notice is that I cut out the right sidebar and kept the left sidebar. Unless there is a tournament, there will only be one sidebar. One of the major things you will notice is the lack of other blog buttons. Don't worry: I haven't gotten rid of them. I created a separate page called Visit These Blogs! that has my recommended blogs
In the future, I'm hoping to create a "Blogger of the Month" widget on the sidebar, but I still need to work out the details. The idea is to give a random blogger some face time on my sidebar and then refer to the rest of the blog buttons on that page.
Oh! And I have a matching button! You can find this button on the sidebar and on the Blog Buttons page.
That's pretty much the layout changes I've made. It was mostly getting rid of extras that weren't useful anymore and putting up a new banner and background. I'd love you feedback on the new layout. And if you have any suggestions now, please feel free to comment on them. If they don't make it into this layout, they could very well go into the next layout!
