The New Geek Twins and Winner of "Big Fish Games" Contest [News]

"Plants vs. Zombies" by Big Fish Games
Updated 5/3/2013

Meet the new look of The Geek Twins blog and learn who won a $50 gift certificate from our "Big Fish Games" contest.

So, by now you've noticed the blog's new look. It's not a huge change, but there are some significant changes behind the scenes.

The number one change is speed. When I did tests, the blog took up to 30 seconds to load. That's way too long. The new blog loads in less than 5 seconds.

We've gotten rid of everything and started over, asking ourselves you really want from the blog.

What's new:
  • Trending Topics - Some topics are more popular than others. We put a list of the most popular topics in one list.
  • ZergNet - We've partnered with ZergNet to share the hottest posts across the web
  • Slider - We got rid of the slider. As much as we liked it, it was a pain to keep updating and the large images slowed the page down.
  • Blogger Buddies - We got rid of the blog roll, but we plan to do highlights on our blogger buddies (from now on known as "The Superfriends". You'll end up with more significant and relevant linkbacks. You're awesome and you know it!
On to the news you've all been waiting for.

The winner of our $50 "Big Fish Games" contest is...Breanne Tennant !

Congratulations Breanne! You'll have 24 hours to contact us at geektwins (@) gmail com to claim your prize or the prize will be awarded to another winner.

Thanks to everyone who entered and a special thanks to Big Fish Games for sponsoring our contest!

    Fandango - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!


  1. I like it! And yes, it loaded really fast. Sometimes we have to make those adjustments. Last year I ditched sixty images so that my blog would load faster.

  2. If you hadn't mentioned it was new I probably wouldn't have noticed. which is good because I fear change.

  3. Looks good.

  4. I'm with you, I wouldn't have noticed. kinda like when the wife gets a new haircut. Not till she asks do you like it? Will I notice a change.

  5. Your blog always loads quickly Alex. Less is more!

  6. I like the new look. And it is much faster--also doesn't make Chrome freeze, which the old one would on rare occasions.

  7. i am happy for the geek 2.0 version... change is good!
