The most delightful blogs are those like little mechanical clocks, like pocket watches, ever ticking in their updates, ever creating cosmos in their content, in their ideas as much as in their layouts, in their psychical structure as much as their digital terrain. Typepad's Folio layout is delightfully stodgy and also, quite modern, and, thus, perfect for all of our sites. Laughing Squid also has a beautiful layout and beautiful content to go along with it: it is similar to the Folio layout, though its main column has a fluid width. There are many other sites, enough to be worthy of a mechanical-clock-charm blogroll.
Here, blogging is delightful. It is done with little intention of gain. It is serene, tranquil. It is The Brothers Grimm in CGI. It is elven tales of the hyper-new.
