    I think the sort of half content half sidebar on the homepage would work as long as you have enough important/relevant info to put in the sidebar.

    Just so ya know…. I”m keeping an eye on this topic! — for inspiration. I really want to redesign my personal blog at rvoodoo.com. I got my blog page finished up, with most formats…. audio is a biggie on that site since I focus on a lot of local DJs. But I totally ran out of steam. I couldn’t figure out where to go, single posts looked like butt, etc. DUnno if I’m gonna pick up where I left off, or start over… but I’ve been watching other folks talk about redesigns to try to get my process in order (I don’t really have a process..so…)

    SLIDE ALL THE THINGS!

    But seriously, props for sharing this processes form end-to-end.

    Why bother with a slider on a portfolio? Why not use a custom post type for “Projects” and have the “Portfolio” list all the projects? That way, you could take advantage of next_post_link and previous_post_link and still maintain the single slider on each page?

    Not saying you’ve not considered this .. I just think the fewer sliders, the better :). I’m a fan of having a dedicated page for each project because of (a) the simplicity and (b) the benefits of having them index easier.
