Welcome to YALSA’s new blog. We changed blogging software (we are now using WordPress) and are working with an entirely new design. The new interface gives YALSA bloggers new features to make their blogging even better. This includes integration of tags, images, and links. Over the next few weeks we may make a few changes to what you see on the blog pages. The primary interface however is ready for public consumption.

To subscribe to the YALSA blog via RSS click on the Subscribe RSS link in the far-right sidebar. Or, simply put this URL, http://feeds.feedburner.com/yalsa_blog, in your RSS reader. You can also receive blog updates via Twitter by following YALSA at http://www.twitter.com/yalsa.

Thanks to all our readers for their patience while we converted to our new site.

    looks nice! i like the color combo. but it’s not entirely obvious that i’m in the blog and not the main site (other than the blog format). it doesn’t say blog anywhere and the header image references http://www.ala.org/yalsa. on most blogs i can click on the header to get to the main blog page. also, those links to trendy web 2.0 sites at the bottom of each entry render horribly in google reader. thanks!

  4. This new look is fabulous! It already seems like we can do a lot more with WordPress, like the bookmarkify tool at the bottom of each post. Kudos!!!

    Mimio thanks for the feedback. We are still working out some kinks and will take your comments into consideration.

  6. The website looks great, but the bookmarkify thing is expanded when you read the page through google reader. It is very annoying and repetitive. I don’t mind the little row of icons at all but the large block of every internet site ever is annoying.

    Google Reader problems with icons from Bookmarkify have been fixed.
