The deed is done! The new template is in place. I hope you like it. It’s weird that the template didn’t include a home button, so I made one for the side bar. I know most people know to click on the header to return to home, but not everyone so I threw one together.
My focus was readability. With all of my eye issues I’ve been especially bothered by fonts that are hard to read. I believe these work well.
I think everything is working. If not, let me know in comments.
By the way, if you’ve been thinking of changing your own template, it was very easy to do in WordPress and they have so many neat themes to choose from. This one (Twenty Fourteen) was free and all I really did was create a custom header and some social media buttons to personalize it.
