I am upgrading various components of this site. Things may break over the next hour or two. You may see some funky layouts as I experiment with themes. Be patient. Things will return to normal. (In theory.)

Edit: Er, just to clarify, this is mainly a behind-the-scenes upgrade. Any cosmetic changes you see here tonight will be only temporary. I’m not planning any permanent changes. Yet. I do want to redesign the site, but I’ve been wanting to do that ever since it launched. I just haven’t found time for it. I’ve finally decided that it’s worth my while to pay for a new template.

I guess since I’ve opened this can of worms, I’ll throw it out there: What would you, as readers, like to see at the site? I know that the archives need work, and that’s on my list of improvements. As an example of where I’d like to take the site, I’m a huge fan of Chris Pearson‘s work. (He did Copyblogger, for example.) I like the 3-column minimalist thing that 43 Folders has going on (though I’m not a fan of the busy sidebars and the text layout). Finally, I like the way Problogger has some useful navigation at the top of the page. I’m looking to combine these three elements into a nice, clean design.

The closest I’ve come to an actual re-design is this test layout I created last fall. It’s a step in the right direction.

I just don’t have time to do this myself.
