The Blog

Welcome to the Newly-Expanded Huffington Post

As you can see, there have been some big ch-ch-ch-changes at HuffPost.the five new sections we've added, and the rest of the improvements we've made.

It's still the same place, with the same address, the same mission, and the same attitude that has always made HuffPost such a great read. It's just that now there is much more of it to love. And to organize it all we've created five new sections: Media, Business, Entertainment, a culture and lifestyle section called Living Now, and a Politics section that will feature our political editor Tom Edsall and a shared-content partnership with Josh Marshall and Talking Points Memo. Plus, we've improved the design, navigation, and search function to help you find what you want more easily.

The front page will continue to feature our signature group blog and breaking news stories, but it was clearly no longer big enough to contain all the great stories, blog posts, and features we wanted to share with you. So each new section will have its own "front page" with fresh editorial talent and a constantly growing list of bloggers.

Of course, these things don't happen overnight, and this change is the culmination of a lot of hard work by my brilliant partner Kenny Lerer and our wonderful editorial and technical teams.

But the main reason we've grown to the point where we need to expand is you, the HuffPost community. The blogosphere is a constantly evolving conversation, and we're blessed to have such an active, passionate, and vocal readership. And don't stop now: let us know what you think of the changes we've made by sending an email to updates@huffingtonpost.com. We'll definitely be listening and acting on your ideas.

Thanks for reading, posting, talking back, and making Huffington Post what it is today.
