I’m new to WordPress and starting playing around with version 1.3 a couple months ago.
Knowing there would be a newer version of WP down the road, I decided to install the nightlies rather than learn a older version of the program .
The thing that really caught my attention about WP and made me decide to use WP for my new website was its new “Page” features.
Over the past 5 – 6 weeks, I checked out various themes. After trying out a few, I decided to try my hand at creating a layout for my own use, something that would be simple for me to maintain and, at the same time, easy on the eyes.
I started out with the new 1.5 default theme (Kubrick) and changed it from a dual column to a single column layout. I decided to use the defaut theme code because I thought I could get more support if I got into trouble with the coding. I also incorporated some styling ideas from Manji and a couple layout ideas from thoughtmechanics.
In fun, I named my personal theme “Lilbit” with the longer version name being “Lilbit of Disandat”.
Anyway, I’m looking for some comments, suggestions, new ideas, or constructive criticism. I would also very much appreciate some feedback from those who are using other browsers (I use Firefox) expecially older versions to see if the layout breaks down. I attained validation a few days ago but did some tweaking since so I need to do that again and clean up the css a bit more.
When visiting my site, feel free to check the navbar out. Also, because I travel a lot, I sometimes have to make use of various locations to use my laptop, so click on the picnic table in my header picture to see how I maintain my site (LOL).

And, thanks for everyone’s help getting me this far.
