Blow up your home page! - Seth

This is something to think about. I have been working on a "home" page that isn't styled that way for a few months... It kinda is a whole personal site on one page... kinda cool, but I haven't launched it yet. Still working on some ideas for content switching that could make it custom based on which Google Ad was clicked. Seth has an interesting little post here.
Seth's Blog: Blow up your home page: "The problem with home page thinking is that it's a crutch. There's nothing wrong with an index, nothing wrong with a page for newbies, nothing wrong with a place that makes a first impression when you get the chance to control that encounter. But it's not your 'home'. It's not what the surfer/user wants, and when it doesn't match, they flee."
