I am an excessive person, it is my nature. With most things in my life, I go through phases of obsessive focus. I need everything to fit (assuming I care one way or the other). If something won't fit, I can't find rest until it will. This brings me around to my point: an obsessive-compulsive personality can be hell to a Blog. Especially a Blog severely lacking focus. So, as with most similar problems, the answer is deconstruction. Rip out everything that doesn't keep the heart pumping. Maybe my analogies could use some work too.
If you're looking for stuff that's missing, don't worry, I will restore some elements (my blogroll in particular) once I figure out a user interface I can live with.
What do you think so far?
