First, let me thank everyone who patiently guided me through the glitches, gotchas and dumdums I encountered during my maiden voyage through WP. I should also thank Chris Pearson, the author of the cutline template which I used.
My site is still pretty content-sparse, but there should be enough there for everyone to get the gist of it. It's a bit of an unusual creature for WP, as it's almost entirely Page-centric.
Anyway, I welcome any feedback you'd care to give. I'm particularly curious as to how others feel about the sidebar navigation I've implemented (whether it's intuitive enough). I'm mostly hoping for design feedback, but if you wish, feel free to look under the hood and critique my implementation as well.
Thanks in advance...
