My blog will be undergoing a change in the very near future. It won't be monumental (like they usually are). I'm opting instead to change some of the auxillary features that you're used to seeing (if you've been here before) in the sidebar. I'm axing the guestbook altogether. No one ever signs it, and it contains some rather bizarre entries from back when I was like 15 years old and thought ICQ was cool. Well, I never thought it was cool...it probably has perpetually had the worst UI of any piece of software in existence, but that's neither here nor there. The point is, it has to go.

Secondly, I'll be removing a lot of the buttons in favor of textual links, and will probably replace them with a single button promoting Firefox. In addition, I may remove the Referrals section, instead opting for a list of either the most commented-on entries, or the most viewed.

I also would like to revisit my handling of the box model (see an earlier post) so that my CSS will actually validate.

And most important of all, I have decided to add something like Mark Pilgrim's b-links and Simon Willison's blogmarks. After reading a recent post from Simon saying:

...having blogmarks has eliminated the temptation to write a full blog entry (with quotation) just to share a link. This has dramatically reduced my posting rate, but has meant that when I do post an entry I usually have something moderately interesting to say.

I now realize that this would be a time saver for me as well, and I'd be able to post links to things I find interesting without having to comment on them, or bury them in big groups of interesting links.

More to come as this progresses.
