Redesigning the FeedBurner Corporate blog, Burning Questions, was the first project since I’ve been at FeedBurner where I took the reins and lead the project and actually did most of the work involved with redesigning the site and recoding the templates in Movable Type myself. I think the new design (above) is so much better than the old site (below), but of course, I’m biased! I like that it extends the brand from the FeedBurner site I helped relaunch a couple weeks ago. Our blog looks like our corporate site. Imagine that! But at the same time, it’s not all stiff and corporate-y. Our personality definately comes through on our blog. On the old site we didn’t really have an archive, all the posts were just listed down the side of the page, which doesn’t really scale well. .. and I thought in general, it felt like a Movable Type default template from about 3 years ago, with the popups for comments and the calendar. I know this is because there wasn’t a lot of time to spend on the blog before, but now that I’m here, it’s one of my main responsibilities, along with the FeedBurner.com site, so hopefully I can keep it looking and functioning good and can add cool new features in the future.
