If you’re reading this in an RSS reader, then everything looks as it always has. If you’re reading this in a browser, then there are differences.
Three things have changed:
- The text is larger.
- The width is no longer fixed.
- There are no longer categories listed in the sidebar.
I’m following Joshua Porter’s lead in making the text bigger. The rational is that it makes content easier to read.
I discarded the fixed width because on larger monitors it wasted screen space. While white space is good, too much is distracting.
The category links have disappeared because I doubted their usefulness. I believe in making things as simple as they can be, while still being functional. By removing categories, I’ve pulled a dial from the interface. It’s still entirely possible to see all the content on this blog by either using the archives link or by searching. Of course, I might be tempted to kill those next. There is a small website called Google that’s pretty damn good at finding content.
Let me know how you feel. Is the site now 100% better or have I just completely ruined your day?
