New layout – what do you think?

If anyone's visited my site the past day, you may have noticed quite a few changes. To sum up; I've been doing some of the changes I've been wanting to do for a lo(oo)ng time. The main reason is to make the site a place to explore, but at the same time keeping it straightforward…

50 followers: Thank you for tagging along
