Hi Nan,

Thank you for the heads up. I moved the blog and didn't fix the link 
with the old url.
Thank you for your compliment:) As for the template, I actually created 
and coded it for Joomla and then  had the urge to learn to template for 
WP so converted the design to WP.
It was a steep learning curve because I was too used to having the 
template in one single file (Joomla) and with WP you have to slice it in 
several pieces that are then assembled by the main index.php page but 
the results are worth it.
My Joomla site was valid css and xhtml just until I installed any 
component because currently most of the components, modules and bots for 
Joomla are still not generating compliant code (most still use tables) 
so I switched to WP and so far with many plugins and widgets installed 
as well as using sIFR3 I still have valid css and xhtml code.
To get everything converted it took about 1 month on a .5 hour/day 
effort to do so (I have a FT job and freelance clients so there was not 
a lot of time to dedicate to my own site). Half way through the 
conversion I decided to go wider since my stats showed I could afford to 
target the 1024x768 audience primarily so it took me just a couple of 
days to widen the design and adjust the css files for it.
I will post a list of the links/tutorials/codex articles I used to 
convert my template.
