I've made some changes to the site, bring on the comments!

Ever since I first started this blog the format of the "comments" section has been pretty crappy.  I've heard numerous stories from people saying how difficult it is to leave one, and sometimes they don't even show up at all.  I'm hoping those days are over.  I've added a new feature called "disqus" to handle it.  Other sites I write for use it, and it seems to work quite well.

In order to do this I had to change the format of the entire website.  The homepage still looks the same, but now if you click on the title of an article (or a link from somewhere else) each post has it's own page.  This should make many many things run more smoothly.  It's the more standard design that most sites use.  I set it up differently in the past hoping that people would read more if each entry flowed right into the next.

To make up for this, I've now added this giant arrow at the bottom of each page.  it's just a first draft (I barely slept last night working all this stuff out), and there will be more improvements coming.

Take a look, explore a bit, and let me know what you think.  Also please comment on whether or not you like the new "comments."

  1. I really like the new format. It's easy to catch up on blogs that I missed and you can even go back the other way by using the browser back arrow.
