    Very well fleshed out! This post provides the kind of depth of purpose you need in your About page. I get a much clearer picture here of what to expect from your blog. You provide a good mix of sites and more personal blogs as well, and you explain their relevance to your topic well.

    You need to remove the default WordPress links (e.g., “WordPress Planet”) from your Blogroll. They’re just cluttering it up.
