Keep the new one. The problem is that you are not writing very much, which is independent of the blog.
I agree w/ MikeH. Keep the new one.. (although I liked the colors of the old better).
Frankly, I don't really care care one way or the other about the presentation, what I miss is what you've got to SAY! Your readers want you to continue commenting! (But don't let it take too much time out of your life.)
I like this one.
Sure lots of people are reading TOTM, it's still in a lot of people's RSS readers, it was on Artima, it had a long time to perculate - Special Effects, not so much.
If TOTM is to be totally abandoned, why not redirect its RSS/Atom feed to Efectos Especiales?
No, keep with EE. Continue writing and it will find its own audience.
i like the new one,
and i would like to read your blog more frequently (like slashdot and daily python)
besides that, the new name 'Efectos Especiales' it's great.
(sorry, i'm not an fair english speaking/writer).
