AdventureBlog.Org Gets A Facelift

rat race urban adventure12 1822 has undergone a site redesign. No, I’m not referring to my humble little site, but instead the other Adventure Blog. The new design is a bit cramped for my tastes, as if the web designer needed to add more to the front page, but didn’t want to stray too far from the original design. Still, they’ve added a “recent comments” section to keep track of ongoing discussions as well as a shopping and market section that will make them rich no doubt. There seems to be more ads on some of the pages as well.

The best part of the site redesign is that some new content has been put up as well. There is a short article with some basic information on climbing the Matterhorn, and hiking in the Alps in general, that is accompanied by some nice photos of the mountains as well. Their feature story is on the Rat Race Urban Adventure set to take place in London at the end of September. Finally, there is also a story on canyoneering with some basic information and things to think about.

I’ll say one thing about that Adventure Blog. They cover a lot of ground, they just don’t cover it very deeply.

  1. Robin,

    I actually meant to comment on your new design a few weeks back when you first rolled it out. Personally, I think it looks great. I was a little put off by the change at first, but now think that it’s quite functional, and the daily stories are easy to follow.

    I do like the idea of having feature stories static at the top, especially if there is something you really want to promote or insure that your readers are getting a look at, but otherwise, it’s a nice design.

    Keep up the great work over there. You’re on my list of daily rounds to read. 🙂
