    Converted the Genesis default theme into a child theme, based on Minimalism… calling it SCRIBE.

    You can see it at work http://jpm.cc

    Appreciate your feedback!

    Love it! I really like the header – it took me a while to realize that it becomes that bolder orange, and then eases down to the original color.

    I think the only suggestion I could offer (and I’m not sure where you would implement it), is to make it easier for someone to find an older post – as it is, they have to scroll to the bottom to get to your archives.

    Nice site! :)

    Thanks Susan!

    I used ideas both from 37Signals an the fade thing was from Zenhabits

    That comment about scrolling was there from a couple of friends who I tested with. Not found a good enough solution to that yet…

    The logic I use for minimalism, doesn’t necessarily mean it should be absent, it should be available, but not necessarily visible until required.

    What do you think about using a sticky menu (like on Brian’s website)… this way the when the user scrolls, they immediately see a navigation with about/archives/contact?

    I LOVE YOUR SITE!!!

    It is perfect, so clean and guides your visitors to what’s most important ‘content’. I am a fan of Zenhabits and been thinking on doing something similar for a small blog I have.

    maybe you can share it LOL ;)

    Thanks @nglstudios! Wouldn’t mind co-auhoring this with someone for release, but as per wordpress.com – you need a sidebar to be considered for release there…  plus i dont have time for support on this (hence the need for a co-author) + co-author has to clean up the css and remove all stuff that is not being used…
