A new day dawns and with it our re-launched MSN UK homepage. I really hope you like it!
The fresh designs are all part of a new approach on the site, highlighting great original, multi-media content and really upping our game around real-time coverage.
I've been talking a fair bit about this over the past few days, and you can also see some of our videos explaining the approach if you go to the Welcome to the new MSN video page.
So we are pleased with progress so far, but there is still a lot to do.
As I mentioned last night, the homepage is in place but we are now waiting for around 6,000 other pages to convert to our new designs. This is a lengthy process and it is taking longer than we had hoped. And while it is happening, our team in the newsroom has to pretty much sit back and wait for it to complete.
We are monitoring progress and looking out for obvious bugs. And in the meantime, there will be a mix of old style pages and new ones, and examples of the navigation corrupting as the process goes on.
So you are seeing the new site unfolding before your eyes. It will mean some pages are clearly "under construction", and there may be some broken links. But the pages are steadily working through the system and we'll get there!
And things should look brilliant when it is done. This story Man held over White House shooting and this one The Saturdays quizzed on their own lyrics give you an idea of where the design is heading.
I'll keep you up to date and feel free to send your feedback in the meantime.
Best wishes, Pete
