Blog Layout Continued - The Perfect Number Of Columns?
Peter Flaschner has a great post on The Perfect Number of Columns which I think bounces off my post on Blog Layout (I say ‘I think' because he doesn't link to it -
but was part of the discussion here in my post so I'll take some credit! :-) ). He writes:
‘How many columns is the perfect number? I've seen passionate opinions voiced in favor of 1, 2, and 3 columns. People seem to have very definite opinions about which is best. I'm here to tell them they're all wrong.
There is no perfect solution. The right number of columns is determined by two things: your site's raison d'etre, and your audience. Asking "what's the right number of columns" is like asking "what's the best colour". The answer in both cases is it depends.'
Peter then goes on to talk about some factors to consider when choosing your blog's layout, in particular your own needs and those of your audience. It's a great post if you're thinking through blog design issues.
