I like the design but I've a bit of a problem with the content. Not regarding its quality or anything, but one thing that stood out to me was that you have an about page and yet you actually say nothing about who you are. Most blogs either have their name in the URL itself or have some bits on it on the about page or at least an introductory paragraph. I realize you do have small bits of what you like on the homepage but it feels rather impersonal to me.
Of course there's nothing wrong with taking that approach, but I prefer blogs where the author allows me to know him a bit better because that will have an influence on whether I return to your blog or not, especially at this early stage where the content can't (yet) carry that decision process.
The design itself is ace, however. :)
Thanks for the feedback @Maleika E. A.! I appreciate your viewpoint on it. I think I may have failed on the initial about page and I'm glad you pointed that out. I have some plans to flesh that page out a little more in the future, but was thinking that at the moment you could get a better understanding of who I was by checking out my twitter or dribbble pages.
I have taken your thoughts to heart though and added in a little bit of info on myself as well as linking to my portfolio site which has some of my work on it (although not much more info on who I am there either :D ).
I will continue to work on that section though because I do want everyone to get to know me better, and hopefully get to know you all better as well.
