Moving Day and a Tour of the New Digs

Hi,
If you've visited this site before, you may have noticed a few changes of late. Here's a quick tour of the digs:

  • You can browse interviews by category, using the menu across the top of the page. You can also use the drop-down menu in the right column to see a complete list of interviews.
  • We've added a Community Project Log over in that right column as well, where we're hoping you'll share what you're working on. Below that you'll find a Tip (And Technique) Jar, where we're hoping you'll let us know what works for (or thwarts) you in your own creative adventures. Just below that's a Twitter feed with the latest posts from @aboutcreativity, where I'll be keeping track of new developments in the ever-morphing create-o-sphere.
  • We've deployed sophisticated "ShareThis" technology with each article to help you take that urge you may occasionally feel to share an article with a pal, and turn it into action.
  • Click on the Bios links to learn more about each artist. Right next to "Bios," you'll find a spot to add article comments.

Big thanks to Chad Capellman, who did fantastic work bringing the new site to life (and whose web-work I enthusiastically recommend). We've got more tweaks and a few more features in the works so if you have any feedback on changes you'd like to see (or any questions about what's where), I'd love to hear from you at: dbrodnitz at gmail dot com.

Thanks for dropping by and diving in,
-Dan
