I got back to Heidelburg a couple days ago and will be here a couple days more. Then it’s back to the United States and quite likely more traveling there.
Completely unrelated question: it’s old web usability design knowledge that links should go down the right hand side of the screen, so they’re close to the scroll bar. But on a blog, where should the blogroll go? In a link-heavy blog, it seems that perhaps the body of the blog itself should be on the right rather than the blogroll. But most popular blogs, including ones by usability professionals, have the blogroll on the right side. Is it best to keep the blogroll on the right side, to conform to standards? Keeping the blogroll on the right also follows another standard: reading left to right. The blogroll is supposed to be secondary to the main content.
And that bit about keeping the links close to the scroll bar seems a bit suspicious: couldn’t that cause people to accidently click links instead of the scroll bar?
