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."

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.
