    I’m wondering how I would go about something like this site with the excerpts alternating sides of the page (picture left, right, left, etc).

    I’d like to do it here.

     

    Anybody done this before and have any tips?

    Hmm. Well, this would be kind of an inefficient way to go about it, probably, but it seems like you could stack a bunch of Genesis Featured Widget Amplified widgets atop one another on your homepage, and switch back and forth between which way the image is aligned. There’s a setting in GFWA for how many posts to offset, so you could use those to “fake” a homepage loop that was in chronological order or whatever.

    I’m sure there is a BETTER way to do that, maybe somehow working off of Bill Erickson’s grid loop, but I don’t know what it would be offhand.
