Our Blog Looks Different Today
Two months ago, we migrated this blog away from nytimes.com, where it had lived for three-plus years. The migration was generally a success, but not totally. There were some early technical difficulties (servers issues, caching issues, and other things you don’t care about), but those were fixed relatively quickly. The bigger problem was that we weren’t crazy about our redesign — and, you, dear readers, were even less crazy about it than we were. It was too grid-dependent, photo-dependent, not readable enough, etc. So we’ve spent the past several weeks re-doing our re-do, and you can see the result as of today. The overall look of the blog isn’t radically different, but hopefully it’s better on many dimensions — fonts, layouts, architecture, and functionality. Please keep giving us feedback, and thanks as always for reading.
