Blog For Arizona Has A Great New Look

Posted By on Wed, Mar 12, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Yeah, I know. "You're on The Range now." "Be true to your blog." Yadda yadda. Blog for Arizona is where I began blogging six years and 3,000 posts ago. Back then, it was basically founder Mike Bryan and me. Now it's so deep with writers — twelve contributors — when I left, it was like someone scooped a cup of water out of the ocean. Hardly noticeable after a brief ripple of water rushing in to fill the gap.

Blog for Arizona's got a great new look. I helped in the creation process and in bringing over the 15,000 posts from the old site, so I'm kinda proud of the results. Other than a more attractive and open look and feel, BfA's two best new features are the ability to connect with social media — you can easily share a post on Facebook, Twitter and a bunch of other sites — and a robust search engine. If I want to find what I've written, say, on the online charter school corporation, K12 Inc., a simple search will pull up a list of all my old posts containing that phrase. The Range has both features as well, but the old BfA was lacking in both areas.

News and information are where you find them, and you'll find a lot worth reading courtesy of the dozen volunteer writers, many of whom are experts in their areas of specialization. As you move around the web looking for some serious reading, especially Tucson- and Arizona-related material, BfA is definitely one of the places to go.
