At the suggestion of readers, I’ve tweaked our sidebar to make it more useful. There’s now a list of recent comments. I replaced the “Best Of” list of posts (which hardly anyone was clicking) with a list of “Top Posts”. Top Posts are the most-viewed posts over the past 24-48 hours, which typically includes but isn’t limited to the most recent posts. So now it’s much easier for you to see what everyone is reading and commenting on, which I hope will encourage more of you to join the conversation. And to keep the design clean and minimize redundancy, I dropped the list of recent posts and the list of recent tweets (since all our tweets do is announce new posts). Hope you like the changes, feedback always welcome.
