I've been doing some tinkering today. I never liked the amount of empty real estate on the blog, but also don't want to clutter it with extra columns or images. So, I changed the layout a bit, made the columns wider, and simplified the color scheme.
You'll notice buttons for subscribing to the blog via common RSS Readers. Those of you who currently subscribe via email might be interested in using a blog reader, especially if you like to read multiple blogs (goodness knows many admission officers have jumped into blogging in the last few years).
Anyway, I hope you like the new format! Let me know if anything looks buggy to you.
