Welcome to the new It’s Pronounced Lajaway! With help from Susan, Stephanie, and all of the other writers, Ryan and I debuted a new site theme and new features that we have been working on for a while. I know I’m biased, but I believe IPL is now the nicest looking SweetSpot blog.
The first change you’ll notice is the largest: the new theme. Ryan McCrystal and I looked at a lot of options but eventually decided to go with a theme that would let us differentiate posts by type on the front page. Before, posts were ordered solely by date. Now, our freshest content is at the top of the home page, followed by a breakdown of posts by category. This allows more spotlight for features and news.
There is also a sidebar with social media links and our site poll. I will be updating the poll every few days, so be on the lookout for a new question the next time you visit! And did I mention the new logo? Ryan knows a thing or two about photoshop and created that banner from scratch!
The largest site addition is the “Franchise Records & History” tab, located on the menu above. Ryan is creating a Tribe database here at IPL, with rookie records, home run records, and closer history for now. New franchise information is being added regularly, so the next time you visit there might be even more team records at your disposal! The next time you need to settle a bet about an Indians team record, IPL can be your judge, jury, and prosecutor.
Along with the major changes, there are some smaller updates and additions. For starters, the authors list is updated with twitter information and current writers’ bios. If you wish to contact the site as a whole, there is also a new contact page, which is located on the menu.
These are exciting changes for It’s Pronounced Lajaway, changes I have been eager to make since my internship began earlier this summer. Be sure to keep checking It’s Pronounced Lajaway for all of your Indians news.
