Thanks to the awesome designers at Unique Blog Designs, my blog has a shinny new look and some awesome interactive features.

There are still a few tweaks to be made, but overall I am VERY happy with the end result. Among some of the features added:

  • Twitter Integration – Follow me on Twitter
  • Video Integration – YouTube and Revver embeds in the sidebar
  • Email RSS Subscription is back
  • Popular Posts are highlighted in their own section
  • Some new Ad Inventory to sell ($50/month for a 125×125 while they last)
  • Social media integration
  • An SEO WordPress makeover

Now that things around here are looking a LOT better, I will try to pick up the posting frequency and even bring in a guest blogger or two maybe.

    Hey Thor! The site looks all shiny and new. Very nice. The video integration is nice so I don’t have to check YouTube as well as the blog. Good luck with the show 🙂

    For Twitter, try the twitter widget. (simple to copy and paste)

    For the Youtube integration youtube has a couple of widgets that will show you not only one particular video, but all your other videos beside it.
    For an example see: http://worlddancenewyork.com/
    (the videos…look at the video integration at the top center portion, ignore the dancing girls for 5 minutes!)

    Looks nice, but I miss the list of “recent posts” on the side. “Previous” & “Next” links would also be nice.

  6. […] A month or so prior to the launch of Top Affiliate Challenge my blog was getting record amounts of traffic.  I decided it was time for a redesign. […]
