If you’re reading this blog in your browser, as opposed to in an RSS newsreader, you will notice a slight change to the layout. Since the end of last year I’ve been writing quick, one-paragraph reviews of books I’ve read, films I’ve seen, and restaurants I’ve been to. They live in their own little blog, but I include the latest five reviews in the sidebar on my main blog pages.
They tend to get overlooked in the sidebar, so I’ve now changed my home page template to raise their profile. The home page now shows the quick reviews in the main body of the page, just as if they were ordinary blog entries. They’re tagged with a “quick review” logo, so you can easily tell the difference. (It’s all done with Brad Choate’s MTSQL plugin, in case you’re wondering.)
I’m still not 100% happy with the way it all looks, so I’d be grateful if you could drop me an email, or write a comment to let me know what you think.
