This is more of a conversation with myself than anything. But, I’m doing it as a blog entry so if any of you readers out there (all three of you) want to make a comment or suggestion, you can do so through the comment section.
I redesigned the site about six months ago to have the following sections:
- A front page
- Four blogs — Politics, Sports, Faith and Church, and Whatever. I did this so people could subscribe to a single blog via RSS, or read a single blog, without having to wade through the other stuff.
- A section for poetry
- A section for other writing
An all-purpose site, in other words. And, for the most part I’ve been okay with it. Except, I get the feeling that it’s hard for people to find stuff, especially stuff on the blogs.
So, I’ve taken to putting blog entries that I really like on the front page, mixed in with the regular front-page items. (I use the FP for stuff from other sites, mostly.) This seems okay, until you realize that the blog things take up room and scroll to the bottom pretty quickly.
So, I’m sorta stumped. I put a “Recent Entries” thing in the first side-bar, and maybe that is helping. I feel, though, like there’s got to be a better way. I’m open to suggestions, so feel free to comment if you have an idea — or any feedback on the current layout.
I’m not expert in web design. But to me, the blog design looks fine. I don’t see anything wrong here.
