State-of-the-Blog Address


           If you’ve been following recent blog activity, you know that there has been a healthy dose of controversy between two of our writers. The aforementioned point of dispute was regarding the distinction between an opinionated column and a strictly humorous post. Now, I do love a good argument, and their little back-and-forth served as a fantastic publicity stunt for us. That being said, the issue is a valid one. So we’ve made a few slight changes here on the blog. Directly under the title is a new header for page tabs. These tabs feature general labels like ‘Humor’, ‘Advice’, etc. When you click on a tab, you’ll go to a page which shows all posts labeled with that word. Or, if you prefer to just see all articles in chronological order, use the ‘Home’ tab. Hopefully this addition prevents any more confusion.
            Onto the second item. Up to this point, we’ve featured an intimidating grand total of six writers on the blog. That’s kinda pathetic. It was our intent to create a medium compelling enough that it would inspire our readers to want to contribute to it. While we have had a few submissions, it hasn’t been nearly on the scale that we’d hoped for. If you’re funny, if you’re witty, if you’re opinionated, we want to hear what you have to say. Take a chance, submit something (studentparkingonly@gmail.com).
            I think that pretty much covers everything for now. Thanks again for your continued support, and keep an eye out for new content.
