I have been blogging and using WordPress since 2002. In the early days of blogging, the blog-roll was one of the most useful features on a blog. This site has one.  Cosmic Variance prior to its acquisition by Discover Magazine was one  of the best blogs of all time and used a theme similar to the one on this site.  The theme is dated and that is all right with me.  It’s an old way, and I find rest for my soul by walking in it.
