Uploaded new theme to wordpress called Clutterless. Cost me $9 but I loved the minimalist design of it. Especially for a blog it works great. Also, it is optimized for mobile devices. The pull out side menu is very slick. www.jaredverbeke.com

Not much had really been done on the site since enrolling in the class :/ Not that I was procrastinating all that much. Finished the HTML/CSS course over at codeacademy.com and I started talking to some folks about design.
