New Illini Wonk Features
Regular readers of this blog may have noticed some new features and Illini Wonk wanted to alert you to a few of them that make the blog easier to use and keep up with.
First, a few weeks ago Illini Wonk added a new comments software that can be found at the bottom of each post. Unlike previously, you don't have to be registered with Blogger in order to comment.
Next is the site search from Google. If you've been to this site in the past and wanted to look back at a post you liked, this is for you. Actually, if I have to explain this to you, you're probably a Michigan fan and we don't want you here anyway.
Then there are several buttons that allow you to add the RSS feed from this site to your personal web page at Feedburner
If you're tired of constantly clicking back here to see if there's a new post (or too busy to do it at all), there are two new features that send alerts when new posts are added to the blog. LiveMessage Alerts! is a feature through MSN Messenger
that sends alerts of new posts to your MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger or mobile device. Alternatively, you can enter your email address in the box that says "send me Blogmail when updated..." and Blogarithm
will email you when there's a new post. Both are great ways to keep up with Illini Wonk and your other favorite blogs (I use Blogarithm to track Mark Tupper's blog
Yes, adding all of the features AND keeping up with the highest profile team in the nation takes a lot of time, so if you want to support this effort the next button is for you. Click on the "Hi. Support this blog today!" button to make a contribution to Illini Wonk. Will Illini Wonk continue to publish a blog without contributions? Probably. Will contributions make Mrs. Illini Wonk a little less hostile to the idea of a blog? Again, probably. It's entirely up to you whether or not you use this button. I guess that's why they call it a contribution.
Top 25 scores have also been added to the blog so there's no need to click away from the site to follow other games that might interest you. Below that are almost 100 links that help you keep up with Illinois basketball. If there's any links not here that should be, feel free to post them in the comments section or email Illini Wonk.
Thanks for reading!
