Escaping Bloglines and the Sea of Same-ness
I usually read blogs from Bloglines, so everything tends to look the same. Lame. What a shame. Too bad bloglines doesn’t let you read each blog in the design the author intended.
I just updated my blog’s sidebar with a list of my randomly favorite blogs. (Leaving out still a bunch of others I check out just because I don’t want the list to scroll forever.) Clicking around, I noticed that a couple of them have recently re-designed! Check out the fresh looks at:
- encytemedia – these tones of green are among my favorite colors. love the icons. but that blue line in the header slightly irks me.
- whitespace – so nice. giant comment numbers! and when you click to read a full entry, the article appears in the left column and the comments appear in the right, awesome idea.
