Late Sunday evening, we rolled out the new design for MLB Trade Rumors. I like the way it turned out. We’ve added a new logo and a navigation bar and accentuated the RSS feed and site search box.
The big change, of course, is the move from gray text on a black background to the standard black text on a white background. I’ll always miss it, in a nostalgic way. But there’s no doubt it turned some people away. And there’s no question the site is easier on the eyes now.
The main benefit of the redesign should be a better first impression for new readers. The current readers come here for the content, not the site design. That said, the current readers are incredibly important. I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments, positive or negative (please keep it constructive!)
