As YALSA Communications Specialist, Stevie Kuenn noted in her”http://tinyurl.com/3cw9xn”>last YALSA update, the YALSA blog is about to go through a really exciting transformation. Come April 4 the blog will not only look different, but it will also have new features for both blog readers and bloggers. Some of the features to look forward to include:
- Easy linking of YALSA blog posts to social bookmarking sites and blogs and the ability to easily send posts via email to colleagues, friends, and teens.
- More user-friendly commenting, including the ability to easily add links to blog comments.
- Improved integration with web 2.0 tools.
- Better search functionality and overall organization of blog content.
On Monday, March 31, the YALSA blog will close for at least a portion of the week. When we shut-down, we’ll start moving content over to the new blog and get things ready for the launch, which will take place by Friday, April 4.
When the new/improved blog launches, there will be a new URL and a new RSS feed address. We’ll make sure to get the word out on what those new addresses are as soon as they are available.
Stay tuned for more details about this exciting change.
