The Lowdown is back…with a new look

As any loyal Lowdown reader is keenly aware, I haven’t updated this blog in quite some time.

For that I apologize.

I’ve had many people comment to me in private how much they enjoyed reading the Lowdown, and I desperately wanted to revive it for quite some time.

The primary reason for the delay is I hated the design and functionality (or lack thereof) of the old site, but I didn’t have the time to completely revamp it.

Unfortunately, free time is not something I have a lot of these days.

I wanted the Lowdown to have a fresh new look with lots of features that would make it reader friendly and more dynamic than ever across a variety of platforms and mobile devices.

I also wanted to archive the content of the old site.

What you see here is still a work in progress. There will be plenty of changes in the weeks and months ahead as I experiment with different features. That said, I think you’ll find the comments section more user-friendly, the pages more pleasing to the eye, and the cross-platform functionality superior to the old, out-dated Blogger site.

Feel free to share your feedback as we move forward. I’m looking forward to the possibilities this new and improved Lowdown blog has in store.
