Countdown to launch

Hello Bloggers,

This is Bill Smith, Site Director for NBC Action News. I wanted to thank you all for your patience as we updated and went through many growing pains with the blog. You spoke and we listened to what you were looking for, namely a better two-way conversation with Gary, Brett, George, Jeff and your fellow bloggers.

With this new blog, we hope you all can better enjoy the community you have grown over the years. We have added some new tools to improve commenting, and as many folks have already seen, we have added Facebook connect, allowing you to log in to the blog using you Facebook profile and pic.

This version of the blog is still being crafted, and some visual elements may be changing, but Gary and the team are excited and ready to go with this new version. As always, if you have thoughts our ideas on the blog, let me know.

Bill Smith
Site Director, NBC Action News

    Kudos – nice work.

    I have been on the new blog for 1 minute and this is already 1000 times better! Love how you can sign in with facebook. Much better than remembering another username & password. Layout is much more appealing as well.

    Great job guys,

    It looks great! Thanks for all your hard work.

  • Are all comments pending approval? While this may seem logical, if there is not an active moderator approving them, you’ll see conservations die quickly. I notice that when Gary is not at the helms, the Blog gets ignored, if we are waiting for say George to approve comments, then the weekends will get no activity… not good…

      I think the reason behind this is so there won’t be any personal attacks/negativity on the blog. The one before last did the same thing I believe.

  • Joe

    I agree this new blog format is much better. Much easier navigate.
