Didn't know they had a blog! Thanks for sharing the link sah.

It comforts me to know that its powered by Wordpress though. ;)

Just checked it out....not too bad but I am sure it will grow.

why would Dawn need a blog?

Whatever happened to their site redesign anyway? They had a beta version up, but then it somehow disappeared. They are always hiring interactive designers so perhaps they are still working on it, however, the Dawn website is ancient and not looking any better for the wear with each passing day.

Yeah, their site really does need some design - its been like this forever hasn’t it?

And where did you see the beta? Any screenshots of what it looked like?

I think just to get readers involved better - if they are re-doing their site, they should definitely enable (moderated) comments and get rid of the separate blog, I think.

Dawn has the most updated news feed for Pakistanis with updates as frequent as 10 minutes. I have put it in my RSS Ticker plugin for Firefox and have been using since one long year. Highly recommended:

In the same way Google needs a blog.

The beta is located at http://beta.dawn.com which redirects to http://www.dawn.net.

It looks much better then the current design but it could still use some improvements…
