We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to get our blog on a new level of functionality. You know, one where it actually works and you can post comments without getting spammed.
In the process, we’re changing the design so that it’s not a clone of the University News web site (as much as we love it). We (being me and my student web developer) think the blog deserves its own “look and feel.”
We’ll probably still be a bit under construction for a while as we figure out just what that look and feel should be. But we’ll get there. Promise.
While blogging has been around for a while, it’s still a relatively new phenomena for us at University News, so we’re taking some time to wrap our heads around it before everyone really plunges in. There’s a lot to consider – we are PR folks, after all. And it’s hard to learn to be as transparent as blogging requires (to be respected and successful, anyway). But just like getting down the site design, we’ll figure out our whole blogging mission, too.
So enjoy the new look. Let us know what you think (now that the comment feature is working again. Comments still need to be approved, though, at least for right now until we get the spam filter’s threshold set right).
