Over the last few weeks we’ve been busy making improvements to the ePN blog that we hope will improve the overall user experience. First, we migrated our five global blog properties in-house from servers they had resided on in Europe. There were a few hiccups around comments and such, but those issues have been resolved.
This past week we made some significant strides in the ease of use of the blog. First, we updated out blog categories to be more helpful and easier to navigate. Second, we upgraded our comment system to the powerful Disqus platform. In addition to a permanent profile that travels with you across other Disqus-enabled blogs, it also adds the ability to more easily share comments through social media. Most importantly, it displays comments in a threaded conversation making replies much easier to follow.
I realize these are small things in the grand scale of the program, but we believe that anything we can do to better streamline communication and encourage discussion with our partners is a good thing. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.
