New blog design

I’ve been blogging here since 2002, and I started Riverfold in 2006, but it’s taken me a while to realize something pretty obvious: traffic flows back and forth between my personal blog and the company site, and I should stop fighting it. Today I’m embracing that in a small way by adapting the “riverfold.com”:http://www.riverfold.com/ design to this blog, and linking more prominently to my indie products.

I’ll still post about things that have nothing to do with software. I don’t want to give that up, and some of my favorite posts wouldn’t exist if I stuck to programming or business topics. Some non-software favorites I found while surfing “the archives”:http://www.manton.org/archives.html include “Ollie Johnston died”:http://www.manton.org/2008/04/ollie_johnston.html, “Perfection”:http://www.manton.org/2005/08/perfection.html, “The Great Scott”:http://www.manton.org/2005/02/the_great_scott.html, “Bush veto”:http://www.manton.org/2007/11/bush_veto.html, and “50,136 words”:http://www.manton.org/2005/12/50136_words.html. But hopefully by unifying things a little it’ll be more consistent, and encourage visitors coming to my blog for the first time to also buy some Mac software.

Thanks for your support over the years. Even when the referrers dry up and the click-throughs aren’t worth graphing, I’ll still write here, and maybe every once in a while it’ll be something good.
