Speaking of redesigns of blogs (and vanity urls to boot), Matt Wiebe - guest number two on a little internet podcast thing - recently launched his own redesigned blog:
It’s all about the writing and not at all about anything else, like my WordPress theme.
He seems to be missing the FaceSmashYourTwitter buttons to share the content, but I'm sure that's coming soon. (/sarcasm)
The New mattwie.be – mattwie.be.
