Should I quit pretending that I'm going to have time to update this blog site and switch to Domino Blog?

Ok, you tell me. I know some of you really don't like the UI on this blog design. I'm tired of it too -- but the idea of using some canned software doesn't thrill me. I've put off doing it because I have some big ideas for the site. So far, as anyone can predict, I've had no time to do anything about them.

Tell me the truth -- does this design suck so bad I should dump it as soon as possible?

One advantage to this one though -- no spam.

There are  - loading -  comments....

Dominoblog will keep your spam protection - but whilst your site is not a
"modern" design (no offense meant - I can't design UI anyway) it serves its
purpose from what I can see.

Content is easy to see - comments are easy to use - it has a clear navigator.

Maybe seeing the content of the comments together would be an improvement?

A nice compliment from a "competitor" ... and Steve is rightBy Jens on 10/25/2006 at 05:44 PM EDT
yes, it serves its purpose very well. And yes, reading the comments is the one
thing I would wish to have enhanced. But den losing the tread-structure, that
Andrew has implemented, would be a loss of information and hence readability. I
would wish to have a blogsphere or so that would have the ability to have
comments in a threaded structure.

I read your site for the content, not for the layout. Reading comments together
with a main post would be nice. You might want to let go from the beveled boxes
(I guess some css would do that trick) and beef up on the title bar?
