The YouTube Official Blog has a completely new look
Aug 03, 2020 – minute read
YouTube has changed a lot since we launched 15 years ago. The video’s size on the page, the video resolution we deliver, our homepage’s layout — not to mention the breadth and depth of our vibrant creator and artists communities, many of whom now earn a living on YouTube. One thing that’s remained the same, though, is our YouTube blog built on Blogger. After 15 years on the site — from our very first post on July 7, 2005 — it’s time to change things up.
So today we are bringing you a new destination to deliver announcements, information, updates and behind-the-scenes insights into what’s happening. This will be in addition to the other communications channels we already have across social, in-product notifications and workshops. And while I’m a little embarrassed it’s taken us 15 years to make this change, I’m really excited about the new stuff we’re going to bring you. The new YouTube Official Blog (yes, yes, I know, the name is pretty boring, but it’s the one that works best with SEO) will now be split up into four topic pages that outline the different kinds of content we want to bring to you:
These are stressful and exhausting times, and it feels weird launching a blog redesign when there’s so much to feel uneasy about. But we also believe it’s more important than ever to double down on further opening the lines of communication between us and everyone in our community. So take a moment to click around, check the tires and take the new site for a spin. There’s a long way to go, but we hope it feels a bit bigger and more spacious, and ultimately, more helpful to all of you.
