Oh, that's a style sheet issue.  Works fine without your style sheet.
I reckon once you sort out paragraphs inside the anchors thing though
it'll sort itself out.

Basically, because your anchors aren't floating or clearing, and have
no text, they don't contain your floating paragraphs, and are
therefore zero in size - look at the anchors' dimensions in the DOM
Inspector (Box Model), and because they all wrap your paragraphs, all
your anchor elements essentially start in the same place.
