Vanity

In a display of shameful vanity, I've edited the formatting of Strange News From The Plankton such that it now has ...
  • Three columns (code from here)
  • A Flickr badge (code from here)
  • A tag cloud (code from here)
The latter development means that I've now dispensed with the old "labels" widget. My tag cloud doesn't say how many articles have each tag, but I can add this functionality in later if I want to keep track.

Anyway, an improvement? Or is it now too busy? It's nice having more of the sidebar stuff visible, but it does tend to squeeze the blog a bit. And since that's what this is all about, perhaps a triumph of style over substance?

An improvement I think. I tend to use netnewswire to read your blogs rss feed though so rarely look at the www version...

Flickr tag on right so text is wider? I also use RSS typically, unless there is something that cues me to lok for images...

RSS? What's that? You technophiles, you ...

I'll try moving the Flickr feed as suggested. I didn't intend for it to be anything other than pretty and, anyway, it's set to random, so the pictures that appear are (ostensibly) drawn from the gazillions I've uploaded to Flickr.

Thanks to you both for giving my new styling the once over!
