Things have been pretty quiet on the blog in the last few days and that has mainly been due to the fact that there has been nothing to talk about.
The international break has been the reason for a rather boring week, although it did see some of the Arsenal players putting in some excellent performances for their countries. Eduardo da Silva, who scored two excellent goals for Croatia in their win against Estonia, particularly caught the eye. There are more games taking place this week and it won’t be until Thursday or Friday until the excitement starts to build for Arsenal’s big match against Tottenham on the weekend.
Although I did post a very short review of Arsenal’s start to the season so far, I refrained from too much writing about nothing in the last week by focusing all my energies on working on a new layout for the blog. There’s not really much point in paying anyone to design my blog at this stage, so a lot of time was spent searching the net for a theme that would improve the Arsenal FC Blog. After much investigating, I came across the minimalistic layout that you are looking at now and I have to say I’m quite happy with it.
There’s been a couple of new ideas I’ve been wanting to develop into the blog and the previous layout was restricting my ability to do so. You will notice a link to a Arsenal FC Blog Flickr Community – a new addition to the blog that I hope will give readers the opportunities to share their own experiences by submitting great photos of anything Arsenal related. If you think you already have some great photos to share then be sure to let me know by contacting me.
Aside from the new photo sharing community there will continue to be new improvements made to the blog that would not have been possible without the layout change. At the end of the day it will encourage more people to become regular readers and work towards my goal to make this blog the most interesting, unique and thorough source of fun for everything related to Arsenal. I have to say I really enjoy reading the insights and comments from both daily readers and part-timers and I hope the new layout will assist in growing the blog further.
I’ll be returning with the regular Arsenal posts tomorrow. In the meantime, let me know what you think about the new layout – I look forward to reading your feedback. Cheers.
