You may have noticed it looks a little different in here (assuming you are not reading this from an RSS reader, which is cool because that’s how I roll). I’m pleased to announced a brand new look and feel, in addition to more ways to consume Providence College Basketball content. Let’s take a look at what the new site will bring other than cleaner digs and faster load times.
Working in the mobile web development industry, it always bothered me how the site (and countless other of my favorite basketball resources) looked on smartphone and tablets. With this new design, the site will adapt to all screens (try shrinking your browser size!). All of the same content will be available and easy to read no matter if you are on your iPhone, iPad, or laptop.
The Friarblog Tumblr!
Fun fact. Friarblog was originally started on the Tumblr platform for the first two years. Now, I’ve started a fresh site and using it in the proper way. It’s kinda like Twitter in a way, but good for posting a quick photo or quote, and “reblogging” other good content in the Tumblr community. You can find the link at the top with the other social icons, or view individual posts linked on the sidebar.

Friarblog on Pinterest!
No, Mrs. Friarblog did not get ahold of the site. I’m rocking Pinterest, and it’s going to be awesome. Where else can you see an online bulletin board of pictures of Ed Cooley yelling? That one has 27 pins, and something tells me there are plenty more to come. I’ve started out creating some other boards, but really could use the help of others. If you have any pictures you would like to share showing your Friar pride, or perhaps showing how you met a Friar or Ed Cooley, please send them along!
Check out what I came up with so far: http://pinterest.com/friarblog/. Plenty to more to come!
Much like Ed Cooley’s Friars have a few more final pieces to set in place before the summer is over, there a few things I hope to also accomplish to make this site a great place to easily consume all the Friar content on the web while staying informed.
I know The Warrior is currently working on a podcast with some other Friar folks, but I may be jumping into a similar venture with a different take in the near future. Stay tuned.
I hope to get more people involved in writing more content here as well, including more from the great contributors that have already appeared.
