happy valentine’s day

February 14, 2008
I like you

My valentine for you, dear friends, is this very long overdue redesign. It’s been stuck in my head like a broken record since the start of the year and, after a lot of thought, design and programming magic, here it finally is. Aside from the glorious white space and room to breathe, the big change is that everything now lives in one place. I was getting confused and overwhelmed with too many spots to update, but not anymore.

This is maganda.org. This is my web site.
