Note to Readers on Donations and Site Redesign

 

Thank you to our readers for your generous donations … and especially for the warm and humbling notes of encouragement.  A couple of your notes stopped us in our tracks, and made us very grateful for the commitment, passion and intelligence of our readers!

We continue to toy with the idea of a site redesign.   We know that 99% of our readers are here for the content, and couldn’t care less about design.  But we’ve also gotten some passionate lobbying to update the look of the site.

We have no design sense whatsoever … and are grateful when you send design input.

Thanks again …

    like the mock-up: less is more, and yr content has all the bells & whistles I need – but yes, a new logo button would be nice, especially if it appears when I so often post fb links to you (Business Insider, Seeking Alpha, etc… these just don’t don’t do justice to the distinct, cutting edge identity you’ve brought to the table

    No,no,no…..way too minimalist. Washington’s Blog or Washington’s Watch (my previously suggested name variation), should not have a regressive logo. It should be clear and strong and perhaps contain a brief descriptor about the site’s raisin d’être. The banner should be the full width of the page. Advertising can stay in it’s current position.
    Your type style and size is good. Be careful not to fiddle with this too much. And be careful about designers who care more about form than function.
    A good example of what NOT to do is Niall Ferguson’s new site.
    I follow a lot of sites but yours is one of the first I check out every morning simply because of it’s quality and insightful content. It is the lens that enables me to see through all the fog and clutter in world affairs.
    Thank you.

    Ditto on the logo comments; it’s not just that it’s ugly, but that it’s early 90s.

    Everything else is not only, in my opinion, OK, but actually good; the minimalism keeps the focus where it really deserves to be on this site — on the content.

    Simple – you’re the BOSS! Very much appreciate all your efforts and insightful observations. Can’t thank you enough.

    As long as we keep the posts in English, I’m good.

    While I agree with the other comments, and as with other blogs, none provide unity of effort to effect real solutions or ways to reach a common goal. What that would be I’m not certain other than starting a revolution to return control to the rightful owners, the People.

    The difference between theory and practice is too great and is unhealthy while being dangerous and deadly. Life is too short for continuing on without improving ourselves and without leaving this place better off. Rule by violence is not to be tolerated, but this is what the American system does.
