Minor Editorial Notes

Hi all,

Now that we’re up to almost 20,000 page views (not bad for a couple of months), I’m considering a few changes and would like to ask for your input.

I’m thinking of unpinning the top post and letting it sink down to the date when it was posted. A lot of people have commented on the post and at the least I should give you fair warning. Opinions?

My current strap line is ‘Come and get it’ under the blog title. I am wondering if I should change it, and to what.

I’m not entirely satisfied with the arrangement of the right-hand menu bar. Suggestions? Also, does anyone have a weblog they would particularly like to see added to the blogroll here?

Other comments on appearance and usability would be welcome in this post.

Thanks for your support. I didn’t really expect to get off to such a flying start, and some of the cosmetic aspects of this publication probably reflect that.

  1. Personally, I’d like to see the ‘recent comments’ under the ‘recent posts’. As a (mostly) lurker, I find that I will read the posts but will usually skip comments (who has time for everything?) unless a recognizable name catches my eye. A more prominent position would help with that.

    As for your strap line, it’s okay with me, but his magnificence the indefatigable William Connolley might prefer Revelation 3:16 –

    “… because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth”.

  2. For the benefit of new visitors to this site, dropping the Not Uncertain post down should be helpful.

    For a number of times, when I saw the top post had not changed, I assumed you had not posted anything new.

  3. I agree that the ‘come and get it’ strap line is not great. It sounds like a cheap cafe. Something more along the lines ‘All the extremists think we are wrong, so we must be getting something right’ may be more attractive.

  4. Hi Tom,
    (snark) – How is this for a strap line:
    Lukewarmers believe that CO2, the miraculous molecule responsible for all life, is Bad, but not to Bad.

  5. What do you think of my choice above?
