I've finally found a design I liked enough to switch over to. It wasn't a dragon design to begin with, but I did a little tinkering with the header, and it suits my purposes for now. I wanted something that wasn't too messy or distracting (guess now I'll have to post more entertaining content though! lol) and to follow through on that I'm also doing a bit of a clear up of the sidebar.
Feedback is welcome as always, and the test blog will still be there, for mucking around and working on my (almost non-existant) CSS skills if you want to stickybeak.
