Today on a special They Bring The Music To Us we are going to go back and check up on a blog we previously featured.
It's been four months since my original feature of Hip Hop Ruckus, which somehow turned out to be my most controversial review of a blog to date. Well a lot has changed since that day, and a few weeks ago the editor in chief asked me to take a look at some new improvements that have been made in light of my article and subsequent comment discussion.
One of the major problems we found with HHR was that while they had a massive amount of content, it was huddled together and hard to sift through. No one was denying that the site needed a redesign. Well with a move from Blogger to Wordpress, Hip Hop Ruckus has become a lot easier on the eyes.
I've made a side-by-side here, so you can look at the differences between HipHopRuckus.blogspot.com and the new HipHopRuckus.com.
On July 2nd, 2008 columnist Flo Dirt, wrote a *ahem* rather spirited post titled "F@#* YO BLOG!!!" in which he stated that he was tired of seeing carbon copy music blogs rushing to post the same content at the sacrifice of quality, and vowed that HHR would come back better than ever with its new design.
If you were on the fence about Hip Hop Ruckus before, this new design and spirit may be just what you need to become a regular reader. I strongly suggest you give HHR another look and another chance.
