You might have noticed that the front page has been redesigned. This is yet another exciting step for the Open Source Network in solidifying Bleacher Report’s position as the web’s home for fan-generated sports content.
Here are the highlights as to what’s been changed and why.
1. More featured content
This one should be simple enough: We’re featuring more content on the front page for the benefit of writers and readers alike.
Writers now have a better chance of their work being displayed on the front page.
Readers now have a wider selection of compelling sports articles to choose from.
It’s a win-win situation for everybody!
2. Sleek professional look
As Bleacher Report has grown, our amazing writers have started to write at an increasingly professional-caliber level.
We thought it was due time to give the Bleacher Report writer base a professional-looking site to complement their stellar work.
3. Content Channels
I mentioned this in a previous post, and now you know I wasn’t lying: Bleacher Report now has channels to feature different types of content.
For those of you who want to read articles of players and teams of ancient lore, check out the “All Time Greatest” channel.
For those who want to scroll through sports-themed slideshows featuring alluring cheerleaders or attractive athletes, the “Guilty Pleasures” channel is for you.
I’d like to point out that this is merely a starting point—we’ve got many more channels coming soon...
...including the "B/R Hall of Fame" channel, which will showcase a selection of the site’s finest content, chosen by our editorial team.
As always, your feedback is incredibly important to us. The current plan (subject to change) is to redesign the front page again in the fall, so please use the comment threads below to let us know what you like and what you don’t like about the latest rollout.
