Wow, that’s what I call feedback! It’s a shame pretty much everyone hates the new design but I like it so it stays. I’ve taken a few tips though and tweaked the link colours a bit, as well as making a few other small changes such as a darker green for the header and a 1em margin around the page.
In an attempt to satiate the voracious appetite for RSS displayed by some of my visitors I’ve set up two new feeds: Blog comments and Blogmarks. I don’t use an aggregator myself so I’d appreciate feedback on how well they work. I’ve also put together a blogmarks archive—no search engine yet, but it’s on the list.
