Blog Updates and Changes

Hey Everyone!

A few weeks ago I had put up a poll to see if I should blog about Pirate101, or both Pirate101 and Wizard101.  The overwhelming majority said both, so I decided I needed to update my blog.  This took A LOT longer than I anticipated, and I apologize for that, but real life has to come first.  Anyway, let me go over some of the new changes.

Overall Design
I changed the whole layout of my blog, from the header, to the color scheme, to the template.  I like the new look, but I want to know what you think.  Off to the right, there is another new poll. Please take the time to vote.  And if you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to comment on this post. Any and all feedback is appreciated.  Also, if you would prefer, I have it set so you can comment anonymously.

New Features
There is a new menu bar at the top of the page. If you scroll over the headings, you will see some choices drop down.  These pages offer lots of information, and I will  be adding more information, and maybe more pages as time goes by.  Watch for posts announcing when more things are added!

There is also an option to view all my blog posts, or just Wizard101 or Pirate101 posts. These choices can be found under the first tab on the menu bar.

The last 2 tabs are for contests and my contact information.  There are no "drop down" choices for these.  Just click the tabs and you will be brought to the correct page.

New Blog Lists
I separated out the Pirate101 and Wizard101 blogs.  If you want a blog added, just send me a message with a link to the blog and which list(s) you want it on. Also, if you notice a link that goes to a blog that is no longer active, let me know so I can remove it.

Known Bugs/Glitches
For some reason, I have been having trouble getting the menu to work in Internet Explorer. It does work in all other browsers that I tried. So if you are using IE, you may need to switch to another browser (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc) for now.  I am sorry for the inconvenience. I will try to have this fixed ASAP.  If you notice anything else that seems to be wrong or not working, please let me know!

Anyway, I really hope you like the new site.  In the next few days, i will be added lots more information, so please watch for updates!  Enjoy looking around! See you next time! :)

Tested it a few different ways for you.

In Internet Explorer, it actually won't open up your blog page at all. I'm not sure why.

On a 1024x768 screen resolution, which isn't too uncommon, you have to scroll left and right to see all of your blog.

Love the new design, though, it looks great!

Hmm...It opens for me on IE9. Maybe I should mess around on a computer with an older version. And I see what you mean about the resolution. Thanks for the feedback! :)

I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post's to be precisely what I'm looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn't mind composing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome blog!
