A few changes…

As some of you may have noticed, we’ve made a few changes around here. After a solid 18-months, we decided it was time for The Cork Board to get a bit of a makeover.

After searching for a couple months and doing a bit of testing, we’ve now got an entirely new look and feel. If you’re reading this via one of our many subscription options (email, RSS, Facebook or Bebo app, widget, etc.) then you’ll have to click through to the blog itself in order to see what’s new.

For starters, you’ll notice we’ve now got a nice large space at the top right-hand side of each page for photos and other multimedia. For now, we’re using that space to showcase many of the great shots taken by our staff photographer. In the future, we’re planning to utilize that real-estate for video and maybe even an advertisement or two should the right opportunity present itself.

Up top, you’ll notice a couple new tabs. One is the not so exciting “contact” tab where, based on loads of feedback from you all, we’ve made it even easier than ever to get in touch. Pretty self-explanatory.

The tab we are excited about is the Napa Valley Widgets tab. Here you can browse a gallery of Napa Valley widgets we’ve created–including those for Whitehall Lane Winery, Miner Family Vineyards and others–and can quickly grab any of the widgets and place them on your site. We’ll be adding new widgets to the gallery as time goes, so do keep checking back.

While we’re not yet finished updating things, most of the rest of the changes are purely cosmetic. Let us know what you think of the new look!
