Bridge Blogging re-design: Phase 1 Complete!

This just in: has completed the first phase of our website redesign (yay)!

Phase 1 Includes:

  • New Places: We’ve divided our Bridge Bloggers from the rest of the feeds we carry, to make it easier for you to follow your favorite bloggers. If you don’t have a favorite blogger yet, you’ll be able to read posts from our new Featured Bloggers section, now appearing at the top of the page!
  • New Spaces: The old, narrow is a thing of the past. We’ve expanded our site to fill the whole screen (and we’ve made the text bigger, too)! We’ve also moved a few things around – you can now find our list of bloggers at the bottom on the page, while syndicated newspaper columns are all in the sidebar.
  • New Faces: Besides all the wonderful new color on the page, we’re going to be including pictures of our bloggers with all their posts. So sitting down to read Aces on Bridge, for example, will be more like having a face-to-face chat with Bobby Wolff. Exciting!

In Phase 2 (coming soon!), we’ll be adding more photos, archiving old posts on the main page, decreasing page loading times, and implementing a few other neat tricks to improve your Bridgeblogging experience.

Do you have a suggestion for Phase 2? Be sure to e-mail us at! Or, you can post your ideas on my blog, or on our BridgeBlogging Facebook page.

Congratulations on your new layout.

Something I’d like to see is the addition of a button to produce a ‘Print-ready’ version of the article, i.e. stripping out ads, sidebars and such. (I notice that newspaper sites often have one).

Keep up the good work.

The print ready version is a good idea. We would value other suggestions too. There will be a phase 2 in a month or two so now is the time to tell us what you would like to see.

I told you my suggestion — I’d like to attempt to implement a “recent comments” box. It could appear somewhere in the heading, or perhaps in the side navigation. It would automatically update the same way that the blogs update (it wouldn’t be exactly real-time but would be a bit time delayed) so that all comments made on ANY bridge blogging blog would be listed in one place. So even if someone commented on a blog post that was made 6 months ago, the recent comment on the old blog would show up in the “recent comments” list.
