New look for Blackbirds Hoops Journal

Welcome to July 1st. The first day of the new 2015-16 college athletic calendar.

With today being a day of first, I thought it would be a great day to refresh Blackbirds Hoops Journal and debut out new look for the blog. I decided to return to more of a blog feel. I felt that some of the posts were getting lost in some of the sections of the blog. Now all the posts will run in order like it used to before the previous update. You can still find the categories of posts you are looking for in the categories tab on the right.

I’m also debuting a new logo and a new banner for the site. The new logo marks a first for the site.

Also, this upcoming season, I have added an Instagram account for the blog so now you can all follow @blackbirdshoopsjournal for game photos and more.

There are other ideas floating through my head that may make their way to the blog next season which I hope will be fun, entertaining and informative and I hope to announce what they are at a later date.

In the meantime, thanks as always for checking out and coming back to Blackbirds Hoops Journal. I hope you all like the new updates. Feel free to leave any comments below. Remember you can always follow me on Twitter, @NelCastBHJ.

    Very nice change…especially the logo. Please keep it up. I truly enjoy your site and the presentation of information you put out.
    LIU players in summer leagues–it’s great for maintaining skills and conditioning–but please no injuries.
    Be well,
