Version 5 of the Coaster Critic’s Blog is now live!
Happy New Year! As I’ve done every winter the past four years, I’ve given the blog a new look. I’ll be making small tweaks and adjustments over the next few weeks and before the end of the month, I’ll launch some exciting new features that’ll allow you to interact with the site like never before.
A Focus on Content
My main goal of the new site was to showcase more content on the home page. You’ll notice that there’s that huge featured post slider (that shows videos!), and then another featured post carousel (now showing a new category, Pop Culture), a tabbed list of recent and popular posts in the sidebar, and the featured categories at bottom of the home page. I now have almost five year’s worth of content. And I felt that a new visitor to the home page should see more than just my latest posts in the traditional blog fashion.
My New Book: Things Are Going to Get Social
As I mentioned above, there are new features on the way real soon. They’ll allow you to easily interact and participate in a whole new way. In addition, you’ll be able to contribute to my new book via a weekly post. I’ll announce details in the next few days. All of the new social features should be available by month’s end.
I’m really excited about the new look and new features. Like I mentioned in my micro update, this is the biggest upgrade to the site ever. Please feel free to leave feedback. I want to make sure that it’s easy to navigate and read. All feedback is welcome.
