In the name of experimentation I have changed the Today template so that it gives a blank slate every day - no previous posts listed, just "On this day" and the link to Yesterday at the bottom.

I think it's an interesting idea that gives a true sense of starting each day afresh.

@colinwalker I always find your experiments with the homepage interesting. I do wonder though, won’t this ‘blank slate’ metaphor work better if you are editing your homepage as-is? The way Dave can? Do you do that? If not, isn’t the homepage primarily for the readers, who may not appreciate a blank page? I am just curious about your views.

@amit It's a bit of both. Yes, it could be seen as primarily for the reader but I always visit the blog in the morning to see what's in "On this day" so will also see it blank every day. I may not be literally starting from a blank page as Winer does but I can still benefit from the metaphor.
