What do you like -- and hate -- about the new blog layout? I bet we all have some strong opinions and have already been hearing from some of you via email (thanks, ES!).
There are a bunch of things I like -- the fresh graphics, the ability to Tweet individual posts (if you're into that kind of thing, the ability for readers to set up little profiles and thumbnail pictures to identify themselves if they want. There's a search bar that may actually work.
There are also a bunch of things that I don't like right now. First and foremost, you can't see how many comments if any have been made without clicking on individual posts. The "recent comments" box they added is great but is way too low on the page and only includes five comments. The archive of previous posts only goes back a month.
The ChicagoNow folks are determined to make the site work as well or better than the previous versions (Typepad, Catalyst). Feel free to tell us what most needs work in your humble opinion. And keep coming back to see how we're doing and say what you like and don't like. The more you read and comment here the more oopmh I have to get it to look and work even better.
