Reader Survey + Giveaway


If you follow along regularly, you probably noticed that recently I made some changes to Team Wiking. The header and layout were the biggest changes, but I also switched up the sidebar, and added a floating navigation, as well as a back to top button to try to make your experience at Team Wiking a little better. The changes I made were in hopes of making it easier to navigate and read content. Any feedback you have I would appreciate in the comments below, or in the 2014 Reader Survey (ended).
