BCer 3.0

You may have noticed I've changed the look and feel of my blog, and I'd welcome any thoughts you may have.

I've been putting off moving to one of the newer blogger templates for some time because of my natural resistance to change, but I decided to finally take the plunge and it was actually easier than I'd though to port most of my sidebar stuff over to the new design.

I like the new template, it makes better use of the screen (particularly on wide-screen displays), the text is easier to read, and the simple white background makes graphics pop a little more. It's a more simple, less is more, focus on the content design that is hopefully easier to read.

The new blogger template also makes it easier to add various widgets, such as a button and a button to share posts on Facebook and other social media services. I do still need to do some experimenting to get the Progressive Boggers vote button back though.

I'll keep tweaking over the next few days, but I hope you like the new look.

A Liberal is resistant to change?

Are you sure you're in the right party? ;)

Good change. Clean, clear, easy to read.

It looks slightly less communist-y. I see Iggy's pulled you to the right. I hesitantly approve. :)

Olaf, I hope you're writing an academic paper on your theories of political expression through Web design, because I'm interested in learning more.

I like the new look. It makes better use of screen real estate and whitespace for better readability.

The look is very nice, Jeff, but the Digg links *really* slow down the page loading on my machine. Scrolling down through your posts is painful (but only for that reason ;-).
