Months ago when I first designed this site, I was satisfied with the approach taken regarding its structural implementation. In an attempt to keep things simple, I divided the site into two sections, articles and notes, which were administered by my CMS of choice, ExpressionEngine. And in an effort to be creative I had decided to custom design each article and certain notes—thinking the process would be easily manageable—by dumping the cascaded styles in an internal style sheet contained in the head section of the document page.
I see no reason to believe that the reported demise of the personal blog is an accurate portrayal of the current state of blog writing. There are still many blog authors writing passionately about subjects that interests them for a community that is just as passionate. There will always be an audience, whether comprised of many readers or just one.
