Hi Flypaper readers! You may have noticed that things are looking a little bit different around here. We’ve been hard at work of a redesign of Flypaper and we’re excited to get to show off our new look!

Most of the major changes to the site will be happening today, Monday, March 6th; and we’ll be doing some work to our older articles to make them look great in our new layout as quickly as we can. Please accept our apologies if you encounter any bugs during the day Monday, and if you see anything seriously broken, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected] and we’ll work on getting it resolved as quickly as possible.

On to the good news! We hope this new layout offers readers a much improved mobile viewing experience, better tools to help you discover the articles you’re most interested in, and navigation designed to better explore articles based on your interests.

Our mobile site features full-width, responsive text, allowing you to read articles more clearly with less scrolling. We’ve added an infinite scroll feature, which allows you to scroll seamlessly from reading one article to the next. Our new design also offers a selection of related articles at the end of a post, presenting you with options for what to read next based on the article you’ve just enjoyed. And we’ve changed the navigation of the site to help it better match our course offerings on Soundfly, organized by topic — Produce, Write, Play, Hustle, and Discover.

We’ve also added a new section on the homepage called “Collections.” Collections are groups of articles, relevant to a particular interest. We’ll be starting with Guitar, Songwriting, Synths, and Practice Tips, but we’ll be changing them up frequently as we learn what our readers are looking for. If you’ve got a topic you’d like to see featured as a collection, let us know in the comments below.

We hope you enjoy the new look of the site and would love to hear any feedback you have on the design. Leave your thoughts in the comments below or reach out to us at [email protected] and tell us what you like (or what you think still needs work). Looking forward to hearing from you!
