Readers of the blog who are not reading the blog via a feed have noticed some formatting changes. I am not sure whether there is any change of format to the RSS feed – if there is, please let me know! For everyone else, I don’t think that there should be any practical difference, other than that it might involve clicking the “read more” or the title of the post to continue reading, rather than just the scroll bar on the right hand side. But I don’t think that that will mean more clicking, and so my blog should not be contributing to anyone having additional finger pains or other negative consequences of the Patheos format changes.
The only slightly significant difference is the elimination of the tag cloud. You can still find things by tag on the blog, but I suppose some might wish to be able to see a visual representation of what I blog about most frequently, and whether Doctor Who, the Bible, Jesus, mythicism, or something else has center stage.
What do you make of the format changes? Do let me know if there is anything you strongly like or dislike – Patheos has generally been open to constructive criticism and feedback in the past, so do let me know how you feel about the changes!
