While a lot of people were visiting our blog posts directly, or subscribing to our feed, not many were viewing our blog index directly.
This gave us the courage to try something new on our site redesign that might be more fun. We're calling it "Footprint" and it pulls in all of our activity: Blog Posts, Press Releases, In the Press and posts from a site we call BetterWeb. I'm also going to be pulling in our Tweets. Combining all of these feeds turned out to be pretty easy with HiFi, our CMS.
Once I had the feed put together, I color coded and came up with a style for each item type. They are ordered by date. These are filterable. When a particular type is selected, a box shows up describing more information about the feed.
Finally, more items can be loaded using a button at the bottom without a page refresh.
All of this was made possible through the use of the jQuery plugin isotope. It's really handy.
