Though I liked the colours of both Bart's and Onur's design a lot, I choose a more neutral background and more contrast in the colourpalet. Let me know what you guys think!
Header: For the Wordle we might be able to use the processing library, will have to look further into that. Do we still need a tagcloud next to this? It might be an option to still have a link to the old tagcloud, but not have it on the home anymore.
General: We should discuss what the search possibilities are. I would like to see a more advanced search option, where you can search by date, keyword, tag, author, etc.
New posts: The posts from the second row onwards now miss a date, but I guess that should actually be in there after all... I've put a lot of the posts on there, but maybe it's a bit too much?
Right column: I included most popular posts, blogroll: collaborative and blodroll: individual. So left some out that are in the current blog.
Previous posts: I let go of the idea of the coloured bars. I like them in the designs, but I think they only work when it's a maximum of 5 or 6 or so. If the idea is to show as many posts as possible, then these coloured bars in my opinion will become too much.
Some more > On colours and fonts. I haven't put in further specs, like measures etc, since we first need to decide what the final design will look like.
