News and Announcements

Banshee Blog is a continual work in progress.  I've been a little light on new posts lately.  I do apologize for that, but I have a decent excuse.  I have been working on some changes, additions and new projects.  Here is what I've been up to.

New Digs.  Banshee Blog has taken up residence on Facebook.  Why is that necessary?  Well, it's not necessary.  But, here is the idea.  The normal Banshee Blog website will remain a home for exclusively original content.  The FB page will be a place to announce new posts on this blog.  It will also be a place to share links, photos and videos that followers of this blog will enjoy.  So, if you're reading this, then you'll want to check out Banshee Blog on FB.  If you like it, "like" it.  If you do, Wild Banshee posts will show up in your normal timeline.  What's in it for me?  I get to have a little more exposure and a little more fun.  What's in it for you?  Well, a couple times a week, you'll get an interesting link or picture in your newsfeed, and you'll never have to wonder again if there is a new post at this blog.

Polling.  The first poll question for the blog was really more of an experiment with the new gadget than an actual search for answers.  From now on, the questions will be more of an attempt to take the pulse of the sports world ... or at least the pulse of the folks who are kind enough to read this blog.  But, for those of you who were wondering, all voters thought that Banshee Blog looks better with it's new header and graphics.  Please check out the new poll question on the right and cast your vote.

Quote of the Week.  Way back in the old days when I was a student and not a working stiff, Banshee Blog used to publish a quote of the day.  Well, I'm not getting that carried away.  But, I am going to start publishing a quote of the week.  The quote of the week will be published on the Banshee Blog FB page.  Why?  Well, because Facebook is a better format for that sort of thing and also because it's another reason for you to "like" that page.  The quotes will all be sports related.  Some will be recent quotes from the week and others will be classic quotes that I have saved up in my collection.  Quotes will normally be posted on Monday mornings.  But, I went ahead and posted one today just to get the ball rolling.

Banshee Rant.  Okay, here comes the biggest announcement of this post.  I am very excited to announce a new monthly feature on this blog.  It will be called The Banshee Rant.  This will be a short audio post where ... you guessed it ... Wild Banshee will rant about a current sports topic.  The exact formatting details are still being worked out.  But, the Banshee Rant will be posted on this site on the first day of the month.  Be sure to check in on May 1 to catch the inaugural episode.
