Am I wasting my time designing my site?

Site feeds reduce the value of interesting site design
Tuesday, September 20, 2005

In setting up this blog, I have been spending a lot of time trying to come up with a unique site design and then implement it well. This takes much more time than I would like, though I’m sure I will be happy with the outcome when I am finished. But my real problem is that if I offer a site feed, then people who are interested in reading what I have to say (I can’t imagine there would be more than 2) would be able to read what I have to say without the benefit of looking at my beautifully designed pages. So why shouldn’t I just post a feed and let the feed reader worry about user interface and design?
