I’ve rolled out some changes to my blog– I’m using a “magazine” format now.
What do you think?
Do I look good in this blog? (I think makes me look taller.)
If you’re subscribing to my RSS feed, things should look pretty much the same. But I’d love it if you clicked through and told me what you think of the new format.
Why the change?
I’d like to post more frequently, including shorter posts with bits of information: the new format will help support that by displaying more posts on the page.
I am my blog
The more time I spent writing about technology, the more I feel like I come through on my blog as who I am. After a couple of years writing this, blogging is part of my life and I would miss it if I stopped. It’s gotten to the point where I sometimes like to buy my blog presents and dress it up in new clothes. At least I haven’t tried to take it to dinner yet.
Barry Ritholltz wrote down what he thinks are good reasons to blog. All ten of those good reasons resonate with me– so here’s to blogs, mine and yours.

Update: I’m still really pleased with the magazine format on the Woo Canvas theme a few weeks later. There was only one thing that bothered me– the theme showed all excerpts, and I wanted to show full posts for the 4 most recent posts. Found the resolution in the forums:
Open template-magazine.php and change line 64
<!--?php the_excerpt(); ?-->
<!--?php the_content(); ?-->
