Design advice... 3 columns?

So I'm having a hard time deciding. I don't know if I'm just obsessed with change or what. I like the three column view and just made the changes but my wife says she's not a fan. I'm curious what ya'll think. Here is a picture of what this site could look like. Do you have a preference? Too busy? I happen to like busy... do you?

I like that the three column has a lot of information right up front (you don't have to scroll to see a lot). This makes my archives easier to see and access, as well as moves the blog-roll up on the page. Thoughts?
