Are people so lazy they can't scroll both ways?  That keeps it compact, enables you to put short articles in corners, make it a newspaper blog.  I thought humans could think horizontally and vertically.  Chinese newspapers certainly have short and long articles, advertising, and such.

I guess I am confused, I'm thinking of a newspaper, with larger headings, preferably fingerspelled so one is absolutely certain of the title, and then everything in clusters of columns.

Your website looks like a newspaper, so you have multiple articles, all of which are vertical in their columns, and distinct.  Else you have no way to lay out multiple items. 

True, the articles are in columns. The thing that has been confusing some people is that the titles and everything on the sides with the current design are written horizontally. So I was hoping to help lessen the confusion by making everything vertical. I would still be able to lay out multiple items with this new idea. The only difference would be that you would scroll right rather than down since everything would be vertical. 

Your frames work fine with me.

So now I am confused myself. :-) You like the way that it is right now without the change better? Or do you like it the way that I was showing in my idea?

I have had several people say that they had a hard time knowing which way the SignWriting was going. The main problem is because it is mixed with horizontal and vertical. So I was wondering if making it a vertical theme would make it any better. Here is a screen capture of the idea I have. Do you think it works better or not?
