Welcome to the New BestTechie

Welcome-Shot

Welcome to the new BestTechie!  You’re now using the latest and greatest version of BestTechie.  We designed the site with a few things in mind: keep it simple, clean, and elegant, make it easy to use, and focus on the content.  I think we did all three of those things with this latest redesign and I’m super excited about it.

I want to take some time to highlight a few key new things our community should be aware of when they’re on the site.

Techie Ticker

The first is the brand new implementation of the Techie Ticker.  You can find it sitting on the sidebar of every page, it includes headlines from across the web that we think are worthy of mentioning.  Think of it as a news feed containing the most important tech stories that were covered on other sites around the web.  In other words, we’ll be scouring the web for the latest tech news so you don’t have to.

Featured Posts and Categories/Events

The home page will always feature an awesome article that will definitely be worth your time to read.  You’ll find it right under the navigation towards the left of the page.  And directly next to the featured article will be our featured categories, these could be categories that are super popular lately or just topical for whatever the reason.  Occasionally, we will replace the featured categories with featured events, such as if BestTechie is at a particular conference, live event, or has a scheduled show that you will want to know about.

Responsive Design

The new BestTechie design is completely responsive, meaning it will look and work great on any of your mobile devices including smartphones and tablets.  Don’t believe me? Go try it.

Trending Articles

Towards the bottom of the sidebar you will find our trending articles, these are articles that have been super popular over the past 24 hours.  It’s a great way to find new content that you may have missed.

Additional Content

At the bottom of every post you will find additional content for your consumption.  You will easily be able to access the previously published article or a newer article (if one is available).  And you will also have access to a great selection of related posts to the one you just read.  These posts are selected carefully after being run through an algorithm that determines if they should be recommended as related content or not.
