I've now added some scripting to the site and I think I can be happy with it. When you hit the index page now, the blog and normal pages are loaded in frames. If you have javascript enabled then the frames will be resized so that the blog is the full screen with the regular site hidden and then the regular page will seem to scroll over on top of the blog very quickly. I added a regular link to the blog on the main page and a javascript revealed link that scrolls the main pages back out of the way to the main menu bar. Essentially, the page remains as functional as it was, but now it has some javascript to make it obvious there is more content to see if you click the something. I'd like to ake it blink while the bar is scrolling away, but I don't feel it is worth the effort at the moment. I had to tweak the temlate I'm using a little though, now the "Hide Blog" link points to the main site. It's not quite as snappy as javascript all around, but I use noscript so I imagine others do too.
