Some small changes to the blog

Ok, some of you may have noticed that I am starting to make a few changes to this blog in the way of content.

I am no longer going to be titling the new issue entries as "New Issue of Digital Web Magazine" because, as you can see, that isn't very conducive to searching nor feed headline browsing. Instead I will be using the basic description of the new content as the title of those posts. My reasoning behind this is, well, if you want to keep track of new articles, you should already be subscribed to the articles feed (the feed itself can be found here). This feed is more about news and update information.

Second, I am going to be doing some more internal linking to pages within Digital Web Magazine that may be getting overlooked. For example, if I am writing about CSS, I may link to the CSS topic page or if I am writing about a specific issue, like Web 2.0, and there is an article about this topic, I may reference that Web 2.0 for Designers article. I hope this doesn't come across as annoying. The goal is to get readers into pages they may not have otherwise realized existed on this site. Previously I was leaving up to the reader to browse our archives, but it has become clear that this may need a little more prompting.

I hope these changes are beneficial to you, our readers, and if not, we'll make more changes until we get it right.

I definitely welcome that change. Thanks for making the adjustments, Nick. I had completely missed that Web 2.0 for Designers article.
