Personal Blog Front-Page Design
(Live Demo: http://qas.im/life/) (note: subject to change, therefore image is provided)
So where the kitten is I am thinking of putting a high quality picture of me done professionally, but it will be kind of a happy mood. The next empty box might be twitter, feed, and the third tags of some sort. Any opinions on the current design?
In the image, you will notice that each word in the subtitle is a different opacity, in the live demo each one fades to a random value continuously for a cool effect.
Each blog item can be expanded by clicking on the arrow that fade in when you hover over them, and can be contracted the same way. It will expand to the appropriate length of that blog post, or i am thinking of expanding it a bit, and making the area scrollable.
In the mobile version, there will only be one column of blog posts, the right side-bar will be disregarded.
The blogging system will be made by me from scratch, I still don't know how to integrate comments into the design without hurting it. That will take some thought. Any suggestions?
