Facelift & a Little Sister
Whoa, something looks different around here!
Yep, that’s an almost-completed new design you see before you, which is meant to complement – drumroll please – the new www.third-beat.ca
Due to popular demand, and my own desire to not dump a bunch of Canada-centric content on you guys (2/3 of you are American!), www.third-beat.ca will be used purely for Toronto-related comedy goings-on.
What this means:
-You won’t notice any significant changes to third-beat.com (other than this little design change). It’s never going to be a high-volume blog, and the regular weekly features (talk show listings, Film Vault Friday) will stay here exclusively.
-Items that are purely of interest to Canadians – particularly Torontonians – will be kept to www.third-beat.ca (perfect example being the “Definition of Fake News” post from last week).
-The will be minimal crossover, so those who wish to subscribe to both blogs won’t get bombarded with duplicate posts. I anticipate cross-posting only when reviewing shows in Toronto by performers with a high profile outside of the country (eg: Todd Barry, Paul F. Tompkins, the Toronto Just For Laughs shows).
-If you visit one site via your bookmarks, you’ll soon see an rss feed of the other site’s most recent posts on the right-hand sidebar, so you can stay up to date without any effort.
This is an experiment more than anything, so we’ll see how it goes. Cool? Cool. Feedback and suggestions are welcomed openly.
(In the meantime, there’s still much work to be done on the .com design side of things — some of which is driving me mad. Your patience is much appreciated!)
