For freer color choice, could put the text of each section in white box on top of the colored background as http://www.bbc.com/ does (they have little boxes and only use gray & white backgrounds, but you get the idea).
More site updates:
* On Comics: Fixed broken links, tidied markup, changed from double column to single w/ section links for better small-screen experience (eventually I want to have it be 2-column on larger screens again).
* Marked up my “About” footer as an h-card so machines can dig it too.
* Enlarged page titles after noticing they were same size as second-level headings.
The h-card validator appears not to check for address properties (p-locality, etc; see indiewebifyme’s view of my h-card vs. glenn jones’ parser’s). @tantek told me in #indiewebcamp that it just checks the bare minimum for indeweb; I think it’d be great if it checked everything but if not a note explaining what it does check would prevent confusion.
Improved display of the sidebar, which is now officially the footer (I might want to make it the sidebar on the homepage & maybe indexes on larger screens, but it’s not a priority). Gave it a border, fixed the alignment, & filled it with info about me (replacing the “About” page), how to follow / contact me, colophon, & copyright. Guess I still had some momentum after fulfilling my little Indieweb commitment :)
Indieweb commitment for 2015-01-01: Fix this site’s single post views.
The default theme doesn’t visually distinguish links to nonexistent pages from links to existing pages, so if you mistype a link you won’t know it’s wrong unless you click on it. I had a bunch of wrong links on my user page (didn’t realize capitalization mattered) and only noticed when I tried on a different theme (Simple) & suddenly a bunch of them had strikethrough.
The Teahouse theme (which works so much better on my phone!) doesn’t distinguish either.
