It has been over an year now when I first thought of Relpost—a place where related quality articles and blog posts can be found. There are many good articles and blog posts that get buried as archives. Relpost intends to fetch those valuable articles (lost in the archives) and put them together where they could be easily found.
Huge number of articles are written every day on various subject but its hard to read all of them at once and hard to find quality content. When we google for content and articles, most of the times the results are based on keywords than on actual content. It’s hard to know about the quality of the article without reading it. At Relpost, we make sure that only quality posts are included.
Who gets the pass?
As to maintain the quality of content at Relpost, I add 1-2 related posts a week. After deciding the topic, I collect 10-15 posts and skim each article. Shortlisting 5-7 articles from those, I choose and categorize final 5 posts based on the value of content.
Content precedes Design
At Relpost, Content precedes Design. Being a content-oriented site, I’ve tried to focus more on clarity and simplicity of design for Relpost. The Relpost logo and headings use Calluna while rest of the text is set in Museo Sans via Typekit.
Relpost went through couple of design revisions before this finalized design. I was looking for something simple, clean and more focused on content where the related posts are easy to scan. The source for a particular article is provided on extreme right. Each post is accompanied by popular sharing mediums like Twitter, Facebook, Delicious and Digg.
