You may have noticed that all the Discover blogs now have a new look. (One that is still being tweaked, so don't expect to see my headshot up there for very long.) In fact the whole site has been updated, so there may have been some issues in page loading times and so on. All part of the shakedown process, and hopefully things should be back to normal soon.
