Any time a web site changes layout, there are reasons for doing so. In the case of The Baseball Card Blog, I changed the layout because the four-column design wasn't working for me. I felt there wasn't a clear hierarchy, and that new blog entries weren't getting enough attention. I also missed the original header image from 2006 - 2008, so that banner makes its triumphant return.
We're using BTemplatr, and this template uses pages as well as posts. Pages will be used for special things. For instance, the "Casey at the Bat" poster and original web project now live on a special page. Pages are accessible from the top horizontal navigation bar. You can get back to the home page by clicking "Home."
The goal of all this is to simplify things. Less jumble means more readers will give more attention to new posts.
