Coffee Beans



I’m posting this image today in honor of my need for a jolt around here. I really want to retool this Website to make it more visually appealing, and I’m working on a couple of options, but so far have struggled to find the exact look at the right price.

Anyhow, that’s why I’m posting fewer photos. I’m playing with other people’s code, and seeing if I can make it work for me. So far, no luck, but hopefully we’ll get there.


  1. I’m sure you’ll find something that suits you, James.

    Don’t get too hung up on the design, though. Remember, it’s still the content that we like. 😉

    • Heh, that’s true… but I gotta look at this thing just like everyone else, and I’m not super pleased with it so far. :p

      • I understand. As we’ve discussed, I know the feeling well. 🙂

        Good luck. Look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  2. Hi James
    Saw your comment over on the Genesis forum.
    Good luck with the redesign – look forward to seeing the results.

  3. I honestly think your site is visually appealing, so I don’t think you should necessarily make some changes. Cheers!

    • Well it’s too late now… I don’t know how well it will be working when you come back, but it appears I’ve jacked the site up to the point of no return. 🙂

  4. I have to agree with the others. The layout of your site is easy to navigate and simple is safe. What are you trying to spice up?

    Great analogy with the coffee beans and giving your site a nice kick! What are you looking to change on your site? Looks good to me.

  6. Good luck with any changes! What themes are you looking into?

  7. I know what you mean about changing up your site. Looks good, but I personally need change every now and then in my life. Do you have a web designer or are you making all the changes?

  8. I’m doing it all myself… which is why it’s not quite right yet. But it will be!

  9. WOW! This looks great. Definitely a big change.. I see you now have some adverts on your site. How do you feel about it?

    • I’m happy!

      I’ve had ads before, but it was just at the bottom of the page. They help pay for my hosting fees, so while I’m not nuts about the ads, they do serve a purpose.

  10. I like the new layout. Your photos looks great because they seem to be formatted at a bigger size. Anxious to see the final product!

    • I think I’m mostly there… I will tweak the settings to make it cleaner, but most of what I do from this point forward will be pretty minor. Thanks!

    I surely want some coffee right about now. Those beans look perfect, they will definitely make a good cup of coffee. Your blog looks great as of now, I think it’s coming along well.

  12. Mmm, don’t even get me started on coffee! I’ve already had two cups of it today, and this picture is making me want a third… Must. Be. Strong!

  13. Ah, to quote one of my favorite silly movies “Kicking and Screaming”… “Coffee, the life blood the drives champions.”

  14. It is 2:07am here, I’m still awake (working late as a code developer) and you’ve just given me the most fantastic idea. Some more coffee to keep me awake hehe
