I decided to try going with no sidebar on both of my websites. Because my posts are often full of images, products, etc. I thought it might make for a more pleasant reading experience. I moved some of the sidebar content to the footer, greatly expanded the menu at the top (still working on it), and removed some items altogether.
Part of me likes the simple and “uninterrupted” look of no sidebar on the desktop. The other part of me feels like no sidebar makes the website less cozy and interesting.
If you primarily visit my website on desktop (which is a lot of you), do you have a preference? I’d be curious to hear what readers think in the comments. I’m honestly not sure which one you will prefer. I’m not sure which one I prefer.
If you have a minute and an opinion, please let me know. Thank you!
