Minimalism and the site

Certain things that once seemed cool when the blogging world was nascent I now consider trite unnecessary clutter.

Therefore, as of today:
Blogroll: gone.
Tag cloud: gone.
Post calendar: gone.

When you’ve got search, who uses a tag cloud? Or when you’ve got archives, who cares about a post calendar? And a blogroll seems spammy. Better replaced by posts linking to content on the sites you like and read.

This is step one of an effort to redesign with experience. Next up, individual pages need some overdue attention.
