Blog Updates

Hey there folks. We have been in the process of trying to figure out how to better list all the blogs on our blogroll. After tossing around a lot of ideas and trying out a few failed HTML/JavaScript methods, we decided to add a "Friends" tab to our navigation bar at the top of the page.

We are proud to announce that after a morning of toiling with HTML and JavaScript, we have finally come up with a workable drop-down list. We were also able to categorize the blogs in our "Friends" list. So here's the deal: if the blog covers a specific team, they have that team's logo next to their blog name. If the blog is a general Pittsburgh blog, sports or no, they get an Eat n' Park Smiley Cookie next to their name. We wanted to do a Primanti's Sandwich, but when we shrunk the picture down you couldn't tell what it was.

To make our "Friends" list, there were basically two requirements.
  1. You have a blog that either relates to Sports or Pittsburgh
  2. You have talked to us before, either on e-mail or Twitter
Finally, a big shout-out to Pat from TeaCast for helping us figure out the JavaScript stuff (which apparently is different than Java). If you like drinking Tea, you should definitely check out his site. He has Podcasts, UStream videos and other things where he talks about Tea. Thanks Pat!
