Congrats on the new blog! I feel like a broken record saying this lately, but be careful with that "reflection" thing in the logo. It’s already to the point of being way overdone and I’m not sure it adds anything of much value to this design. There are some things I might tidy up. I think the blockquote style is nice, but I’m not sure it needs to be left indented with that background you already have on it. Sticks to the grid nicer if you don’t. Also the background behind the search bar probably isn’t necessary. I think my favorite part is the cropped icons down in the footer metadata, that’s pretty clever.
