I was getting slightly irritated with the old layout of myScoop and decided enough was enough. After a few hours of messing around and some help from Bonita, I managed to come up with the current “cleaner” look and feel. I’m sure you will agree , it looks a hell of a lot more professional.
On another note, myScoop.co.za has reached a PageRank™ of 3, which means that if you’re article is mentioned on the front page, that link juice is sent directly to your blog.
- Fresher cleaner look.
