Another blog redesign

Well hello again…it’s seems so long since I’ve been here. Anywho, I’m here to talk to you children about what we changed on this blog.

Well you see we were trying to think of ways to organize the content where everything new would be visible and wouldn’t be pushed back a couple pages. Now in order to solve this dilemma we instituted what I call the “3 blocks.”

  • First block is the newest marathon news.
  • Second block is the latest gaming news.
  • Third block is the current original content.

More about these blocks and other notable things after the break.

You might notice that the third block extends to the bottom of the page…well it also extends on to the next pages as well.

The posts in the first two blocks are limited to those sections; this means that you will have to click on the corresponding blocks name in order to see the rest of the posts from that section.

We also will try to have pictures thumbnails for every post, big things like Flash animation, galleries, pictures, and videos will be left for “after the break.” If you don’t know “after the break” means, then allow me to explain. All it means is you need to click this little guy (shown here):

In order to see the rest of the content.

Speaking of videos (this is my last point of interest), along with the thumbnails, a play button will be nestled cuddly on the thumbnail if it contains a video. For example:

  1. Thank you! In retrospect, this is an entirely logical setup and I’m kind of miffed I didn’t think of it months ago when the blog first went up like this.

    Better Organization = Happier Readers

  2. It looks great! My only flaw is the feed thing at the top, well sometimes the text covers the pictures if you know what I mean! Only a minor niggle though, it’s perfect besides that though! =D
