When I took over the responsibility of writing for Rhodia Drive, I spoke with Karen at Exaclair about re-working the blog layout to make it more interactive and user friendly. After she approved of my proposed changes, I quickly got to work on learning the in’s and out’s of WordPress.
With help from the amazing April of Springthistle Design, we did away with the separate Rhodia Drive Home page and put everything on a single page. We added RSS functionality, (to subscribe to the blog in a reader or to individual post comments) the ability to subscribe to the blog via e-mail and a site wide search function. We created fresh new categories so you can see more of what you like at the click of a button. We added a blogroll, a Facebook widget, (for the Rhodia Drive Facebook Fan Page) and a Flickr widget for the Rhodia Drive photo group. I’m feeling really good about how the site is currently being presented, and I hope you do as well. We always welcome your comments and suggestions on how we can make the site better for you.
