New User Interface and Clip Blogs

Bloglines is celebrating its first birthday!

Today we’re unwrapping some great surprises for all of you. You’veprobably noticed our new look, which has been designed to make Bloglineseasier to use and enjoy. Hope you like it!

With the new look, we’ve added several new features, based on yourfeedback. You can now specify how your subscriptions and folders areto be sorted, and new subscriptions will be sorted automatically. Wehave added a user directory, to make it easier to see what otherBloglines users are reading. And we’re really excited to introduce our biggest new feature:

Bloglines Clip Blogs
– The easiest way to create a blog
– Fully integrated with all your Bloglines news feeds
– One-click blogging from any Web page
– Subscribe to friends’ Clip Blogs and get notified of updates
– Simply click on the ‘My Blog’ tab to set up your Bloglines Clip Blog
– Best of all, your Clip Blog is completely free — just like the rest of Bloglines!

In addition, Saved Items have been renamed to Clippings, and you can easily move private, clipped items to your public blog and back again.

And oh how we’ve grown: Today Bloglines searches and indexes more than 80million web articles and receives more than 5 million hits a day.

As always, we look forward to your feedback about our new changes, and suggestions for how we can continue to improve the service. If you have any suggestions or questions, please contact us.

Thanks for making our first year a great success!

Update: We’ve already received some great feedback. One thing we’dlike to mention is that we will be adding back the font size preference.Until then, both IE and Mozilla provide the ability to change the fontsize of a given page. Look in the View menu of your browser to set this.

Update 2: We have added back the font size preference setting, andrestored existing users’ font preferences. To change your font size preference, visit your Account page, and look for the ‘Font Size’ selector. We are also continuing to tweak the new sitebased on the great feedback we’ve received so far.
