I have been thinking about a blog makeover for a while. I know that it is essential been the same forever but there are a few things I would like to change. I will be changing my header for sure. I am not sure if I will ever have the time to get Anthony to take a similar picture, so it will need to be something different. I want to be able to do more with comments. I think I would like to reply to comments on the posts. I am pretty sure that it would be more interactive to reply to comment threads and give others a chance to comment on other comments as well.
I want the layout to be simple, with a black and white header, well maybe a little colour. I want dark text on light back ground, again I think I do. I think I will get rid of some of the stuff in the columns like the blogroll that is so outdated. I need an about page, maybe a manifesto type page.
What should I keep? What should I change? Are there any more things I should dump?
I’m all for manifestos. I think we all need one!

A manifesto? Maybe not. But an about page is a good idea. I recently loaded Disqus comments onto my site and I really like that I’m able to reply to someone and it appears on my site as well can email them directly. I think having a light background is a good idea. I don’t want to offend but…I don’t entirely get the calendar when you have archives too. I think one or the other is good. Really your blog is kind of representative of who you are.
I know I’m always tweaking mine and I’m never happy. Mine’s too busy I think but I’m never sure what to remove or move. Sigh. It’s a work in progress.
