I fell asleep in the guest bedroom at 6:30 or so last night, only to wake up at 12:30 a.m. this morning. I decided to work on re-organizing my website, so you’ll see some changes on the sidebar.

Actually, I’m not reorganizing so much as renaming things. Up until today, this site’s organization had been based on the metaphor of an apartment. Each section of the site was a “room” — the study, the office, the kitchen — which would then contain content relevant to that section.

The problem with that system was twofold. One, in terms of navigation, the name of a room wasn’t always an obvious indication of the sort of content inside it. Two, I had to stretch the metaphor in unpleasant ways, like using the kitchen for my links (“the stuff that feeds my mind,” as Brennen so excellently put it).

So, you should see this site’s names change noticeably over the coming days as I complete the switch-over. Unfortunately, it’ll take a while, as there’s a heck of a lot to change.

Oh, and just so I have a record of these sites: and Virtual Bookworm.
