I've recently redesigned my website and wanted to make all of the code available to others to borrow and/or modify as needed. The new design borrows heavily from Leo Babauta's Zen Habits blog, especially his archives page. You can find his theme available here, free to use and modify. My theme is here.
The formatting is similar to the old site, but I've gotten rid of the trashier elements, like social media buttons and comments. The site had become bulky and difficult to navigate, but I think it's a little nicer now.
You'll need to know a little bit about WordPress to make it work for your site, but if I can get it working, I'm sure you can too.
