Jeroun Coumans adopts the mullet blog layout

Jeroun Coumans redesigned his blog. Among the improvements? He’s switched to the mullet layout I’m always blabbing about.
Finally, I’ve taken lesson from Jonathan Boutelle and made my journal more useful (hopefully) thanks to his concept of a Mullet-style blog layout According to my referrals, there are plenty of you entering here via Google, so this should help those visitors to more easily find their way through this site.
Long live the mullet! Wear it with pride, web-folk!

    Thanks for the referral! Just one comment: it’s “Jeroen”, not “Jeroun”! 🙂

    Why is it called “Mullet Style”? What’s the difference with any other style?

    Jeroun: sorry man. It was late at night when I posted.
    Claudia: glad you asked!
    The distinguishing features of a mullet are:
    1)Top N stories appear with summary descriptions
    2)Next M stories appear with only titles and hyperlinks.
    This small change lets you have 50 stories, rather than 10 stories, on your front page, assuring that older content is still findable by your readers. I have noticed significantly more traffic on older articles after making this change.
    The reason it is called the “mullet” is that it is longer in the back than you might expect (just like the haircut).
