I wanted to congratulate you on winning a web award at SXSW. We didn’t get a chance to meet/talk at the festival, so I felt like sharing here. To be honest, I don’t read your blog, but have heard nice things about it (good writing, design, etc).
With that last bit of info in mind, I thought it was time to dive in and check out your posts. I read the first one on the home page… then the next one… and then the one after that… oh wait, it’s dated January 1st, 2005. Oh, I see the (A post from the past.) sub-heading now; it must be a random entry from the archives. Okay… so how do I get to previous posts? I hope the Bryan’s Journal button does it.
Ah, the archives… where I now have to click on the Chronology tab… pick 2006, then April. Quite a bit of clicking to get beyond the 2 posts on the homepage. Now I’ll click on Â« previous 15 posts to see more …oh, not a link. Do you see where I’m going with all this? Also, I’m all for personality on a blog, but I have no idea what your menu options are supposed to mean. Is colophonics even a real word? And what are your thoughts on an active nav state for each section?
ps… I subscribed to your feed and hope this means we are now internet buddies :) …after all, I too am an anime fan.
