Simply put, tomorrow’s election scares the living daylights out of me. But as President Obama says, ‘Don’t boo. Vote!’ and that’s precisely what I hope everyone plans on doing tomorrow, if you haven’t done so already.
But in an effort to keep the anxiety at bay, I decided to occupy my mind with mindless, but useful, webmaster tasks such as database optimization and making data driven user experience changes to the blog’s layout.
To that end, you’ll notice a trimmer navigation menu (the top and main nav bars have been consolidated into the latter), longer post excerpts on the homepage (but fewer posts listed), a refreshed popular post sidebar widget, and a brand new related article module at the bottom of each single post.
Between now and tomorrow, drop by a post from last month that includes references to help voters find out who their local, state and national reps are, and what their stances are on the arts, etc.
