Winning Eleven Next-Gen Blog

Winning Eleven Next-Gen Blog (WENB) started in 2007 as a Blogger-powered blog, but quickly became the place to find out the latest news about the PES / Winning Eleven games from Konami. I got involved when I re-designed the site one rainy Sunday afternoon in 2010, and soon ported it to a WordPress-powered site, on it's own dedicated server. A year further down the line and FIFA Soccer Blog (FSB) was absorbed into the team, and the two sites ran as siblings, powered by WPMU and phpBB, with a highly customised theme.
18 months on from that launch, and the sites were re-designed and built from the groud up, moving to a more powerful host, and running the latest version of WordPress. WENB and FSB have been joined by Next-Gen Gaming Blog (born as PlayStation Gaming Blog) - the new kid on the block, but with potential to do very well. In September 2012 the sites were again refreshed, this time with a responsive theme, which has been iterated on since.
