You can check out an example of this new layout right now over at our baby website Inhabitots.

    It’s nice that the site loads faster, however, I browse design blogs by image, not by headline. If an image draws me in, I follow up with the story, and not the other way around.

    Based on the larger images in the most recent stories, it seems this design may have been rethought. If that’s not the case, squinting at the teensy story images is both frustrating and painful when there are many other fish in the sea of design blogs available for browsing. When I first came across the tiny images here, I nearly closed the window out of sheer irritation before I even came upon this survey.

    I’d suggest attaching two site CSS styles, and allowing users to select which style they’d like to see, either image-dominant or text-dominant.

    Why is it blue? Keep the green and you win. The blue theme looks like an Argos catalogue.
