Blog Revamp

It's been a long time coming, but I finally switched from the classic Blogger template to widget-style editing. Most of the template came out intact, but I lost some of my customized HTML code - some handcrafted sidebar elements, links to reddit, digg,, etc.

What I liked about the widgets-based template is that it makes formatting the page very easy. Integrating new apps is as easy as opening a widget window and pasting in some Javascript code. I managed to port over Radioblog, Google Search, Snap's mini previews, Statcounter, and Google Analytics. Instead of the Flickr Badge, which only displays the latest pictures, I uploaded 800+ of my photos, and used Google's Picasa slideshow.
