I suggest keeping the monthly archives. No preference for the other features.

fwiw, I subscribed using add to google

I generally like the "AddThis" buttons that combine all of the possible social networking based sharing into a single, compact design element. http://www.addthis.com/

The monthly archives is the only feature there I'd miss. If you replace it with the tag cloud, can you tag posts with their year at least?

I used the add to google and prefer the monthly archives.

Thanks for the great blog.

I might suggest going with something like Wordpress which is extremely customizable. Also, utilizing the left sidebar might give you more room to spread things out. I like the archives section, but a drop down box with all of them would help save some room. Just my 2 cents.

Just a suggestion for the monthly archives, if you can customize it easily enough: I've seen monthly archives presented as a year with the string JFMAMJJASOND on the line below. Each letter is a hypertext link to the month, so that a whole year occupies only two lines instead of twelve, which seems like a nice space-saving concept.

Year and JFMAMJJASOND on one line would save even more space, but I believe it exceeded the width of the blogs' sidebars in that format. I've seen an alternative compromise with year+JASOND on one line and year+JFMAMJ on the next, going backward in time six months per line.

Not really liking the new banner. The style contradicts the mission of simplicity and efficiency. Not that a banner would keep me from coming here daily :)

Ike: It will still be a few days before I can reveal the new design - what you saw this morning was some kind of accident that exposed a discarded concept. No worries.
