I bit the bullet and added the sidebar on this blog’s theme. I wanted to keep the blog design really simple and clean with no side column, but I think it’s easier to browse the articles etc when you have the categories, etc.
Actually, I’m just really lazy. I could have coded a link list on the front page of the site and created a menu you can use to browse the articles in a different way, this was just way easier.
Ps. I also added a Dreamhost offer at the bottom of the sidebar, so if you want cheap, reliable hosting and you want to support this blog, you can use the promo code: ARNORHS_NICE
