All in Doodads

Readers of ALL KIND FOOD will notice that its pages are not encrusted with badges, tag clouds, blog rolls, linkbacks, permalinks, scrolling comments, advertising, Amazon links, dancing babies, and other detritus and ephemera. I call these "Blog Page Doodads." My blog doesn't go in for doodads. That’s by design. When Jeremiah Owyang recently announced to members of The Podcast Roundtable that he had added a cloud of tags supplied by ZoomClouds to his blog, I did wonder if I should add something like this to my own. I've decided not to, at least for the time being.
