I've been meaning to slightly re-jiggle my front page for a while now, and I think that it looks much better. Things I've done:
- Added 5 posts to homepage instead of 1
- Added hover effects to sidebar
- Added more sections to sidebar
- Added pages for tags, comments and stats.
- Changed the CSS for links to make them stand out from body text better
- Removed the image post headings - replaced with 20px Georgia with a CSS text shadow.
- Changed URLs for dynamic CSS, EG the custom or day based CSS changes (makes me happy and probs improves support for old browsers)
- Added the custom/daily colour change to links + headings in sidebar
- Added an awesome magnifying icon to the sidebar search box
