I've been giving the site some thought, and have decided that it's fundamentally a little busy. So I'll be decluttering. Short term, this may mean that clutter increases a bit (I'll add new stuff before removing old).
This may have been seen by the observant as neater RSS buttons appeared everywhere before old ones vanished. I now offer a choice of feeds, including a feed for flickr images. Once everything has settled down a bit I shall make a page which goes into what each feed actually is in detail.
As regards the cluttering, to be honest, I quite like the idea of having a veriety of things readily accessible, however at the same time I don't like the visual clutter, so it's a tough compromise. The basic colour scheme of the site will not change, essentially it'll be a look at tidying up the sidebars.
That said, at some point in the dim and distant future I might start to play with 'parallel' templates for a complete redesign of the site...
This post is my way of forewarning in case I break something. If there are any comments, please feel free to get in touch.
