Site Feedback

Recently, I have reached some milestones with this blog. A big thank you to all the readers. So I figured now would be a good time to take a look at the blog and see if I need to make any adjustments.

One adjustment I have been thinking about is the layout. In order to display more text on the page, I made the area where posts are displayed wider. I know there are some reasons to have it the default size. What do you guys think? Wider or more narrow?

The label section on the sidebar is a bit unwieldy, so I am thinking of dropping it.

I have very little artistic skill or design talent, so I did not even try to make a very nice looking site. Instead I went for a simple and clean look. Recently, I have started to add some more images to my posts which seem to make them a bit more interesting to look at at least. Does the clean and simple look work or would you rather see things become a bit fancier?

I will be updating my blogroll very soon, as I have let it slip a bit. Blogger added a load of new gadgets that can be used, so I am going to have to go through them and see if I can find anything useful.

Any other feedback, good or bad, is appreciated. Thanks!


I like your blog, but I read it in my rss aggregator so I don't even know what yer site looks like. :)

You do have a point. I would say the majority of the readers are via RSS.

I normally like to read stuff on peoples blogs after seeing it in google reader.

On widescreen I think it's too wide. It's too bad you can't give a column a "max" width

Looks like it's not fixed-width right now, which I prefer. That said, mine is currently f-w because I can't find a theme I like that has all the nifty layout bits I want -- and since I'm not (currently) hosting my own, I think I have to make do.

As has been said though, I think I read about 75% of posts from the feed, then visit sites either to see more, read other stuff, comment, or whatever.
