In spirit of a site redesign, I wanted to lay out some preliminary things. Don’t worry, Holygrenade won’t ever be bogged down by bureaucracy. In fact, HG is so anti-rule we could be considered anarchist. Okay, I’m done.
Avid readers (if you exist) may notice a slight change for the site. That is in spirit of a new logo, an actual logo, and because, well, the previous WordPress theme I had didn’t allow for a custom logo. Which is important for a site (or so I’ve heard).
The overnight change took a couple of hours of frantic work, fuelled by a pot of coffee and conversation about Railroad Tycoon. But the change is here and staying for a while, or so I’m planning. I like the simplicity. Holygrenade is just a hobby site for me, so I didn’t want any spectacular design (or anything that would cost me hundreds of dollars to put together). It also marks the start of the site’s run of Raptr, a Facebook-like service for gamers, of which the page can be found here. I was invited to their Editorial Partners program and through that, supposedly, HG could generate upwards of 100,000 visitors per post. The last time I checked, that’s a lot of people.
Another stark difference will be the content offerings. I’m still working out the details but for right now I aim to have at least one post up every day, capped at about 600 words. Interluded between those will be interviews and previews, and the odd game review if I get so lucky as to get a free copy or purchase one on my own. Of course, guest submissions are always an option too, and one comes my way that’s worth posting it’ll likely go up as well. I just wanted to set some limits so as to not drive you guys off, but also give myself some guidelines because I had been operating Holygrenade quite frivolously up to now. That all changes.
Cheers guys, and enjoy your Thursday.
