Rarebookreview joins the blogosphere

Rare Book Review contacted me and asked for help setting up their own blog and it looks like they’ve finally got it live! The staff complained that they were not happy with the way the news stories on their previous site were working, and that they did not have many facilities to promote their news articles. As a result, they asked how I would go about fixing this. My approach was to make use of the WordPress software to run a blog which could be easily updated with newsitems. Using a small PHP script to parse the RSS feed from their blog, it was fairly trivial to create a replacement block which could be used on their website to update the news section with newly posted articles on the blog.

Overall, I like the look of their new blog, I hope they go far with it. Meanwhile, Rare Book Review’s shift to the blogosphere means that we’re now all capable of commenting on their news articles. I wonder how many other changes they plan down this line!
