I’ve been getting antsy with my blog’s design lately, wanting to bring it into more of the 2012 (or even 2010) style. Unfortunately, Blogger hasn’t done too many improvements to their templates, and I am too lazy to switch to WordPress. Recently, Blogger released some modern layouts, and I’ve temporarily updated the blog to this fancy new layout.
So, what do you think? Should I keep it or stick to the old one? Here’s a screen shot of the old layout, in case you needed a refresher:
Some features that I liked about the old design that would be lost in the slick new one are: sidebar features like recent comments, my Twitter feed, my current reading list via Library Thing; and the snazzy header designed by Jimmey. Some of the same links are on the right, in a nifty pull out tab (older posts, tags, and links). The top tab navigation should still be functional.
