Please Read: Changes to HND, Big and Small.

Posted by Peter Hall - June 29th 2009 @ 10:04 pm

If you read HorrorsNotDead.com strictly through an RSS feed, you will have no clue as to the changes I speak.  If you load the site on a regular basis like any decent human being would and should, you may have noticed a few tweaks around these parts.  Even if you do have it bookmarked, you’ll be clueless as to the fourth point below.  Surprise!

Firstly is the header.  Gone are the random selection of horror related quotes.  In place are pictographs of the three most recent articles that I’ve deemed highlight worthy.

Second is the width.  As you should have noticed, HND is now a tad wider.  This allows me to fit more of more verbal girth into your gaping maw all at once.

Third, and perhaps the smallest change with the biggest impact, are the various blog templates.  A desire to not clutter the front page has led me to restrain from posting things in the past.  Now, with the inclusion of several styles (most notably headline only), you can expect to see more updates throughout the day without having to overload the front page.

[As always with coding changes, kudos go to Chris Bowyer, lord of MovieForums.com, for processing all my whimsy.]

Fourth, and biggest of all…

HND is soon to be throwing down in the blogging world with Scott Weinberg and company at HorrorSquad.com!

Scott and I have been talking off and on for a while and now that the Cinematical brood duo of SciFiSquad.com and HorrorSquad.com have stepped forth from the womb, I’ll be lending a written hand to the latter.

Fret not as this will have little impact on HND and its content.  All this means is that I get to feel a twinge of validation in the blogging world and from time to time you’ll be clicking a “Read More” link at HND that winds you through the rabbit hole over to HorrorSquad.  No big deal for you, big deal for my ego.  Win-Win!

As you were.

    Aw, Peter, I liked the random horror movie quotes. Made it interesting trying to figure out if I remembered them or not.

    I do like the idea of more updates, though, since you’re the only blog I read. (I dont even read my own site’s, oops.) Now make the recent comments expand into all comments so I can snoop around more often!

    Congratulations on pairing up with Scott Weinberg, I might even accidently read one of their articles.
