I've slightly changed the bar on the right to make it more compact and easy to understand. Now instead of having a list of blogs I follow which needs manually updating, I've added a blogroll of all the blogs I'm following. This shows the latest 10 posts of the blogs I'm following.
Now the links bar has been dramatically reduced to only the blogs I own to make it easier to use. Also I added a search bar so you don't even have to type Google in the address bar.
