So what's this about presents? Well, we've made some great changes to our system that will make your local blogging life easier. So whether you're already a part of our local blog network or are thinking of starting...we humbly present the product of our labor of love:
New Local Profiles
You now have the ability to create a local profile that lets you link to your own website, write a bio, and upload a picture. Of course, this seamlessly integrates with the upgrades we've made to your City2 userblog!
City2 Userblogs Now Have:
Tasty New Designs:
This is the most obvious change. We've created 13 spiffy new blog templates based on a much clearer, more readable layout. We will be continuing to tweak these new designs as time goes on.
Blogroll & Twitter Support
You can add your Twitter name to your user settings so that your most recent tweet is displayed right there on your blog. You can also link to other blogs, profiles, and websites from your blog - which has been one of our 'most asked for' upgrades.
Freshly designed Control Panel
Remember when changing your City2 profile information was bizarre and confusing? Yeah, it was totally annoying… so we made a new system from scratch. Your new and improved control panel has been re-designed and is very easy to navigate. It's full of helpful links, suggestions, and lets you manage your account easily (finally).
Your friends no longer have to be City2 members to leave comments! This means that anyone can leave feedback - which means more conversation. Anyone who knows the answer to the secret question 'what's the main street in SB'. that is... we put that there to keep out the spammers :)
Every user now has a special page linked to their blog that displays a thumbnail of every photo they've ever uploaded to City2. The Bellicose & Bucolic and Almost Native Son, both have extensive photo archives that really show off the new feature.
Sinchy Sign Up
After only one step you can be composing your first blog post (another big improvement). If you have awesome friends, tell them to get themselves to City2. It's like locally grown catnip for cool people.
That's it for now. But know this; we're just getting started. More cool stuff on the way!
