A quick heads up to everyone with regards to some forthcoming changes here on Bitter and Blue, along with a sneak preview along the way.
Over the next month or so there will be some big changes both here on the blog and across SB Nation as a whole. There is no doubt that the blog has come along way since its formative days on Blogger and its move to SB Nation some two and half years ago.
The most fundamental change will be to the layout and design of the blog and having seen what is in store (which the co-writers will vouch for) it will be well worth the wait and whilst it will undoubtedly help us writers the main beneficiaries will undoubtedly be you guys in terms of being able to read and navigate around the content that we put out.
I'm confident that we have taken the blog up a notch this year and this will allow us to keep on moving in that direction and the first teaser I can provide you with is the new logo which will replace the current one (top left hand corner of the blog for anyone not paying attention...):
I'll sign the post by leaving it up to Tyler Blezinski, founding father here at SB Nation to tell you more....
It's with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of Bitter and Blue. In the next month SB Nation will be undergoing a dramatic upgrade to our platform and our editorial process. There will be much more detail to come but for now, the new logo below is just a first taste of what is coming for Blue and Blue.
This is a small, but important sample of what is coming when our network undergoes its most exciting and radical transformation in the eight-year history of the company. A new visual identity here and across the network is only one step we are taking to unite our network of sites. United through individuality is the underlying theme of this project. You'll notice that our team colors and the unique spirit of our individual community is maintained while making it clear to sports fans that each site is a part of the larger SB Nation network. We want everyone to know that they can find the same type of great writing, video and conversation that we offer here on all of our 350 plus sites. You can browse through all the new logos on a special page we put together at sbnation.com/united.
Our commitment to passionately follow our sports will never end. It's what makes SB Nation a special place and that will only be enhanced by these new changes. In the meantime we're setting up additions to our store so you can be sporting the latest and greatest before it even launches. Welcome to our future.
