Quite nice, the clean interface makes it easy on the eyes, and it
looks like it'll break down nicely if someone's using a console-based
browser (e.g. Lynx).
Since it's already set up like that, I don't know if you want to
change it, but maybe a unified header + description at the top,
followed by a selection for Layers | Pixels | Paths would be
http://blogs.gimp.org/pixels, and http://blogs.gimp.org/paths URIs
would make sense (although that's less creative, i suppose, than your
current offerings). If you did do something like that,
http://blogs.gimp.org would maybe also have the same main header as on
the above three sites, and then split the three aggregated feeds into
individual columns with mini-headers... maybe similar to the column
layout at http://www.google.com/ig (except not so interactive and
messy...)... each column would be headed b the individual "Layers",
"Pixels" and "Paths" blogs headings respectively.
Hopefully the suggestion sounds clear... and maybe it's something
worth considering, but take it with a grain of salt. I won't be
offended if you don't like it.
