Simplifying My Blog: Not an easy task!

It’s time to simplify, simplify, simplify. My blog has been getting messier and messier over the past few months as I blog more. So I have decided: time for a spring clean! When your blog is messy, what do you clean?

Here’s my list:

1. Categories: I’ve got categories coming out of my ears, but I’m going to be paring the subcategories back to the barest minimum. I think that should make for clearer organization. I’ve already cut back the BlogRoll categories, now I’m starting work on the postings categories. I think 12-15 should be a fine number. Watch as it shrinks!

2. New Theme: I’ve been trying out several themes over the last few months, I’m looking for a cleaner and simpler look. I just haven’t been able to find anything just yet that really suits! Right now I’m trying MistyLook, but I don’t care much for the coloration. I’ll be trying some alternative colors before I do the CSS makeover.

3. Some Links: Some have to go. There are just too many on one page. I’d rather cut out the unnecessary ones, and leave the best! So I’ll be paring there too. Pared, in fact.

4. CSS: I’ve been trying to decide what to do on that front to make my page unique. I’m still pondering this makeover!

Thoughts, comments? Did you like the old theme or the new one better?
