I wanted to let you know that I have put Planet Blender back online last sunday, and since there have already been two new micro releases, with the latest 'Transmitting' enabling readers to send in links to new feeds in a simple way (which looks quite cool, too). So do send in those missing blogs!

I'll be working on this site for the coming time to bring more features, like language filters and some indicators to tell you there are newer articles to be read.

The site will have for some time to come this minimal layout, but rest assured that this will be improved on in due time. Also, currently I work on the JavaScript powered version of the site (never thought I'd ever like JavaScript, but here I go).

Anyway, I hope that you will like the new Planet Blender. Enjoy reading the community.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    I love the new layout :) So nice clean retro style. At least that is one positive way to look at it?:) :s
    By the way, we really appreciate all that courage in hard times... Thanks!

  2. HoooOoray! Since the site's downtime, I have been Blender-saddened for a couple of weeks. It had been my habit to visit the site everytime I load up my browser. I'm glad it's now back online. =)

    Thanks, Nathan! And congrats! ^_^

    But where's the feed for blenderplanet itself?

    I very rarely look at individual websites anymore- I view everything through an RSS reader.

    Without a feed, blenderplanet is still down to me.
