    Still tweaking a few things but I’m mostly done. I added some hover affects to the images. I may increase the padding so that each section stands by itself more.

    Let me know what you think could be improved. Thanks!

    I like it, Charles! I wish I’d seen it a couple of weeks ago – I would have joined your 28 day challenge! :)

    I’ve taken up the challenge! – help me answer some of the unanswered posts



    Have you looked at your site in FireFox? It looks totally different to me than in IE.
    I know it’s maddening to make a site look perfect in all browsers, but I’ve taken the painstaking time to make sure my site looks good in all 3 major browsers as well as on an iPad, both in portrait and landscape.
    The reason I mention this is because I use FireFox almost exclusively and the site doesn’t look anything like it does in IE. When I saw what it looked like in FF I had to open IE and it looks great in that browser.
    I’m certainly no expert and won’t be the one to ask coding questions. Just thought I would throw it out there. Having spent a week working on and tweaking 2 Genesis sites I have a strange affinity to this forum having spent many hours digging for tips and tricks, and know what many are dealing with to get their sites just right.
    Best to you!

    Hey- I like it.  I’m looking at it in Firefox, by the way.  The colors, fonts and layout are all really pleasing to my eyes.

    One thing struck me as I was looking at your title “Transparent Leadership”.  It would be cool if the background was slightly transparent so that you could see the c|s coming through, instead of being blocked out by the background to your posts.  Or maybe in photoshop you make the other half of the letters faded out so it looks like they are showing through the back- I don’t know how you would do it, because I am totally new to web design and not a web designer.  That’s just a thought that came to me as I was looking at your site- the idea of transparent leadership and the covering up of your initials are at odds.

    Another thing is there is a small typo at the bottom of the page where you mention getting a “nickle or two” should say “nickel”.

    Hope that feedback is useful.

    I checked it out in Firefox and the background should come through as transparent. It is transparent in both Chrome an Firefox for me. In IE, however, the content bg is not transparent at all and shows 100%. I’ll need to figure out how to fix that for IE.

    You should be able to see my name through the content bg. I have it at 5% transparency. Do you still not see it? Hmm…



    The current theme/layout looks great.

    Last time I looked at it and commented there was a yellow background and it looked totally different.

    It really looks good in FireFox now. Great job!

    That is strange.  I am looking at it in Firefox 19 (not IE!) and I can’t see your name through the background.  However, when I went to take a screenshot for you, it suddenly became transparent as I stretched the cursor over.  In the screenshot itself the background is opaque and I can’t see your name anymore.
