We’ve been writing this blog for the better part of the last six years.

During that time we’ve made all sorts of changes, some big — the awesome additions of FixAaron and FixRachel (as well as alumni FixFelicia) — and many small.

But one thing that hasn’t changed is the format of this blog. Until now.

As you can see, we (aka the crack Post designers) have totally overhauled the Fix format all with an eye on displaying more of our content and making the experience of reading The Fix easier and better for our readers.

A few of the biggest changes:

* Our favorite stories — regardless of when they were posted — will appear (with pictures!) at the top of the page.

* Five of our most popular topics — White House, Campaign 2012, Senate etc. — are featured more prominently, allowing Fixistas easier access to the stories therein.

* You can click on Fix Original Recipe, FixAaron or FixRachel and jump to only posts by that person.

* Individual posts can now be printed (for you old-school types). They also can be easily emailed (for you new-school types).

Like all changes, this one is a work in progress so hang in there if things are a little buggy for the first few days. And, if you see something you don’t like or think needs to be fixed, make sure to email chris.cillizza@wpost.com.

And, this seems as good a time as any to thank a few people too.

That list starts with our readers who have understood from the start that writing this blog is a labor of love and have helped make it a vibrant community organized around a common love for politics.

The design and tech teams at the Post deserve enormous credit for conceptualizing and executing the redesign. As do the big bosses at the Post for believing in the Fix and its admittedly nerdy mission.

With that, Fix 2.0 officially begins. In the immortal words of David St. Hubbins: “I hope you enjoy our new direction”.
