As you can see we’ve given the GeekITDown Blog a new look. Rest assured all the great content remains intact and available for viewing, but with, in our opinion, a more pleasing look and feel.
The most noticeable change is the articles slide-show. This is a fantastic feature for allowing viewers to examine multiple story headlines before clicking the article of interest. Along with the slide-show are ‘Featured Articles’ and ‘Editor’s Picks’ which will allow readers to see what topics are hot and must read. For all of those new areas, readers will see an image associated with the article or story in question. You’ll notice the Topics and Categories are now lined along the top with subcategories for more natural navigation and our social network connections (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) have moved to the side. In addition, we’ve made significant improvements to page load speed which should be immediately noticeable.
Finally, we’ve changed our logo. We felt a change was in order to better represent our brand and modernize our look. This change applies across the board to all things GeekITDown and while the roll-out is immediate, it may take some time before all our footprints across the web are updated.
We’d love to hear your opinions or comments on the new look, logo or anything else. Please let us know! Over the next several weeks some additional minor improvements will be made and we will continue to improve in ways that best affect our readers. A special thanks goes out to the Arras theme makers for creating an outstanding template for which to work on. A very special thanks goes out to our readers who continually encourage us to bring them great content.
