Undesigned my blog

I recently read this blog post by Rick Carlino about fabulous text only websites and decided to redesign my blog, or more precisely: undesign my blog.

I have ripped out most of the CSS and used the styles from bettermotherfuckingwebsite.com as a starting point. HasClunk already outputs pretty minimal HTML5, so that’s good.

I’m quite happy with the result. In Lynx there’s not that much of a difference, but I really enjoy the lightweight look in the browser.

While I was at it, I also removed all the embedded music players from Soundcloud and Jamendo. They added all kinds of nasty JavaScript and tracking stuff to my site and don’t want to expose all my non-existing visitors to that kind of stuff :-).
