Next month, Inside The Arts will celebrate its 10th anniversary so in order to help mark the occasion, we rolled out updated layouts and features at all of the blogs.
All of the blogs hosted at the site feature a similar content driven design, similar to what was rolled out here at Adaptistration last month, that deliver faster user experiences. Compared to other culture blog collectives, you’ll enjoy sites that load anywhere from 100 to 300 percent faster. With the specter of net neutrality slowdowns threatening to become a reality, those speed optimizations will help prevent frustrating online reading experiences.
One of the collective’s longest running sites, Joe Patti’s Butts In The Seats, features a full width layout, enhanced sharing functions, and an updated color scheme. Similar improvements were roiled out at Joe Goetz’s Scanning The Dial.
You’ll find brand new image driven layouts at Doug Rosenthal’s Who’s Your Audience? and Holly Mulcahy’s Neo Classical. Both authors have always taken the time to enhance their content by incorporating a good bit of photography and the new full width image headers and a single column content layout showcase their hard work.
Be sure to drop by each site where you can subscribe to their email list (if you haven’t done so already). You can also subscribe to the master Inside The Arts weekly email summary right from the site’s homepage. It combines the week’s posts from each author (including the self-hosted members, Jason Heath’s Double Bass Blog and Brian Dickie’s Life After 50 Years In Opera). If you like fewer messages and catching up all at once, it’s an ideal option.
