Winning Eleven Next-Gen Blogwww.winningelevenblog.com
Winning Eleven Next-Gen Blog (WENB) started 3 years ago 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, 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 has potential to do very well.
Look out for an update to the whole nextwork of sites, coming late Summer 2012.
