New Website! Yipee!

Well, I'm finally done.  I've ported over the entire website from Google Sites to Blogger.  I did so mainly to integrate better with Facebook and Twitter and to add some interactivity.

New Features
  • You can now add your own comments.  Just click on the blue header for the post and add your comments at the bottom of that page.
  • There's now a "Like" button for you Facebook addicts.
  • At the bottom right corner of each post, there are buttons to "Email This", "Blog This", "Share to Twitter", "Share to Facebook" and "Share to Google Buzz".
  • I set up a video playlist on Youtube.  The video window on the upper right corner has arrow buttons on the left and right side to skip to the next video.  Let me know if you know of any other videos on Youtube that I can link to.
  • In order to avoid losing articles to the changing winds of cyberspace, I've copied the text of the articles over to the posting. At the bottom of each article is a link to the original location.  It will normally say "Via ____".  In most cases you're better off looking at the original article because there's photos and additional formatting. 
  • Do you want to be a contributor?  I now have the ability to post articles via e-mail, so if you're interested I can give you an email address which would post directly to the website.
To speed up the transfer, I haven't copied over all the leaderboard links.  I'll be working on that in the near future, perhaps making a master list of leaderboard links.  In some cases (especially Nationwide Tournaments), the original leaderboards don't exist anymore so alternate sources had to be found.
