I realize that I have not posted to this blog for over a year. After looking over it again, I felt that the current design looked a bit dated and decided to give it a bit of a facelift.

Then, I shrunk the sidebar and expanded the main content, added a subtle blue background color to the sidebar modules for contrast, and changed the link color from red to blue.

As for content, there are many topics that I am either itching to write about or have started writing. I have also slightly reorganized my blog categories since I am planning to expand the scope of this blog to also include some of my non-software hobbies and interests. In any event, I am expecting to update this blog a lot more frequently, so stay tuned.
