This is a work in progress, the coding would likely be an interesting mess, but one concept on how Metro could be translated into a personal blog.
As with the plain idea of it, the blog would focus on the content over being excessively flashy as a site itself. I'd debate whether black on white would be the best color choice, but I'd be open to changing that.
I think I'm gonna try to make this into my own blog, but I can be assured there will be some clunky-ness to an initial version, including the point that I know there's a way to use a custom font which may or may not be on the user's computer, but I don't know how to do it.
As always, any suggestions, ideas, or otherwise are definitely welcome!
