One thing I unfortunately am not a big fan of is how the homepage is archived per say, it makes finding older articles harder, so now and then I intend to do one of these listings with all previous posts so far.
Another thing I want to address is the advertising. At the moment I am using a free plan through wordpress, which unfortunately comes with advertising. In the next month or so I hope to get on a better one in order to get rid of all of that crap. I ask you to bear with me for now, I have lots of great articles in progress!
