Welcome to A New BlogHerald

Repost This

When Splashpress acquired the BlogHerald some six months ago, there were some changes that we planned on implementing, and I’m happy today to report that much of that is going to fruition today. Coupled with a new theme, courtesy of Brian Gardner, you can expect a renewed focus on all things blogging.

Our news coverage will cover redouble on events that are happening in and throughout the blogosphere, blogging networks, and how blogging is affecting the world at large.

Our featured posts will refocus on things that will also have special relevance for bloggers, including new categories and topics, such as blog design, blog monetization, and the legal aspects of blogging.

During the week we’ll be working out a few kinks, with J. Angelo (assistant editor) and Brian Gardner (wordpress theme ninja) working in the background to iron them all out, so if you happen to notice a few odd things please be patient.   As always, let us know how we’re doing because we look forward to producing some great content for you.

Cheers
Tony Hung // editor

    Well .. Since you asked …. :D

    It would be an easier read if the author’s title was beneath the Permalink on the front page, just like it is on the single page .. for those of us browsing content and titles and authors and stuff like that judging books by its cover .. you know .. no offense :) but sometimes our eyes seem to focus more toward our favorite writers and contributors first ..

    Done! :)

    Any more inputs? Keep ‘em coming. We have to take a break in a bit, though. Personally, I need some sleep. Heheh.

    Actually – there is one thing more – I noticed that I am “subscribed to this entry” .. (I hit refresh and noticed your response) – I didn’t get an email notification for your comment. FYI

    Thanks for that tip, HART, It’s either the plugin or our server’s mail handling. I’ll have to check this out.

    You have an alignment issue when viewing the site with firefox on a mac.

    The white background of the main column is overlapping / screening the navigation bar slightly…

    Maybe you fixed it, but I don’t see the overlap issue on Firefox 2/Mac.

    Very nice — a bit more serious. Clean. Great job!

    Could you possibly provide full text feed instead of the truncated one with “(more…)”? It would be great! Thank you, keep ip your great content.

    Definitely cleaner layout and design, 100% better than previous design. Good job.
