The observant reader will have noticed some minor changes to the sidebar. The thousands of one hit wonders from Google won’t.

  1. Popular posts (widget)
  2. Related posts (widget)
  3. ‘Archives’ gets a run in the first team, displacing the rarely used ‘Calendar’ and ‘Categories’.

I prefer using widgets to having to actually edit (and risk breaking) the PHP code. Widgets always work with any theme. Also, I thought it was odd that Google Analytics hadn’t tracked a single outgoing link since I installed this plugin. This turned out to be a bug fixed by the most recent version.

I flirted briefly with installing Google Adsense but, in the interests of purity and minimalism, decided against.
