*sigh* Only 15…man I’m getting old!

Like the colors, like the title font. A couple thoughts/suggestions:

— the ‘jd french’ in your header could probably be larger.

— just having a link to your most recent post, rather than the post itself, seems an odd choice. The purple bar is also, in my opinion, a lot of real estate to just hold a link (to me, it looks like it should be either part of the header branding or possibly main nav). In general, the navigation is a bit odd (to my eyes, at least).

— your content is really, really wide — on the web you want to keep content columns pretty narrow for better readability.

Having said that, I think you’re off to a good start and have a decent base to work from.
