New Additions to the Banshee Blog

In case you didn't notice, Banshee Blog is now sporting two new features: A Google search bar and a tagboard.

Google Search Bar: This could be a very useful tool, especially as time goes by and the volume of posts increases here at Banshee Blog. For example: Say you were wondering if the Wild Banshee or friends ever shared any wisdom on the topic of the BCS or Mona Lisa Smiles. Instead of searching through all of the archives, you can now just search Banshee Blog via the Google Search Bar.

Tagboard: As Banshee Blog's 6-month blogoversary approaches, Wild Banshee hopes that a greater sense of community will begin to develop amongst Banshee Blog readers. What better way to build community than to facilitate communication between Banshee readers and, of course, the writers? That's where the tagboard comes in. The tagboard is sort of a hybrid comment-tool/chat-room. It's a little more open-ended than straight up comments, so I'm hoping that it will spark more discussion. I've never really used a tagboard before, so this will be a new experience for all of us. It's located on the right-hand side of the screen (scroll down some if you don't see it). Please give it a try.
