Ok so I've been told by Julie that I don't do enough blogging and I should get my finger out and help her a bit more.
So I'm currently on my lunch at work thinking "What the hell can I blog about?" Julie, Kory and Krystal have always been better at telling you all about our day-to-day news and to be honest who wants to know what I get up to during the day? It's too geeky/boring (delete where appropriate) for this blog.
So what I thought I'd try and do is give a bit more off-topic news and stuff. At least that way we give it a bit of variety.I don't know where this is going to lead but what the hell I'll give it a shot
So where better to start than the new blog and some of the new features?!?!
You might, or might not, have noticed a few changes. I've got more in the pipeline but here's a quick rundown of some of the less obvious ones and what they're for:
Archive by Subject: You can now look up posts by category. So if you're looking for all the news from Julie it's in the "Julie" section, if you want to watch the videos we've posted in the past then they're in the "Video" section.
Subscribe: Some of you have spotted this already but for the lazy people out there you can now subscribe to our blog using the little "Subscribe" option at the side or by ticking the option when you add a comment. This means that when we publish something new then you'll get a copy of the entry in your Inbox straight away. It doesn't look as nice as it does on the Blog but it saves you coming back to check constantly.
(small print: no email address is sold to third
company parties party companies or spotty teenage spammers to try and sell you cheap viagra. That is unless this blog becomes a world wide hit in which case I'll need the cash to feed my new expensive habits!!!)
Moveable Menus: A bit of a story here . Julie wanted the menus in one order and I wanted mine in another. So to make everyone happy I've made the menus moveable. Not only that it will remember the order you select for the next time you visit the site. Cool eh?!?! Well I thought so!!!. Just grab the bar at the top of each panel and move them around. You can also open and close them with the little coloured icons in the corner.
Tags: Julie didn't see the point in this one but I think it's cool. You'll see there is a section called Tags. This is a list of the most popular subjects on the site. The blog will change these and increase / decrease the size of the text depending on how many entries go into that category. Practical? I don't know but I thought it look nice on the screen
Right enough from me, my lunch is getting cold
