We've mentioned some changes coming for Wordtrip. I've got a test version of our Content Management System (using blog software with a magazine design) running right now. Check out the latest tidbit with a link to one of my new favorite blogs.

Nice layout--but so...so organized. I prefer the current layout, which reminds me of my sock drawer. I just scrabble around and somehow come up with a match.

It's still a work in progress. Mudge is getting some non-fugly design work done on it, and I'll be tweaking a few things layout/organization-wise as well. We'll still have the forums and such, but trying to get something that's more magaziney and content oriented out there for people to use when finding us. Thanks for taking a look.

Looks similar to the Writer's Digest site.

FYI: The design hasn't been changed around yet, but there is still new content to be found at the blog/zine.
