Things are looking different around here, huh? On Friday afternoon, I started getting the itch for a new (yet similar) look, and TJ knocked it out of the park over the weekend. I wanted the overall look to be the same, but I wanted the design to look cleaner and newer. I absolutely love how it turned out!
So, what’s new? Well, a lot, but here are some of the biggest differences:
1. You have to click into each post to read it. I went back and forth on this a lot, but I ultimately decided to go with it, because I think it makes the homepage look a lot cleaner. Also, if you’re like me, most of your blog reading is done through a reader, so having to click into a post doesn’t really change much.
2. Advertising options are back! I’ve changed up my ad options a bit, and I’m excited to be back to taking on sponsors. To celebrate the return of ad spaces and the new look in general, all ad spots are 20% off through 2/28!
Now for a note about my blog designer/husband: I know I’m biased, but the guy is good at what he does, and he was able to make pretty much anything I asked for a reality (shameless plug – he is starting to offer blog design as part of his web development business). All of his work is responsive, so it looks great on phones and tablets too. If you’re looking for a new design, a blogger to wordpress transition, or even a custom website, he’s as good as it gets!
Of course, with a new design, there’s always a chance that things can look a little wonky, so if you see something that looks off, we’re probably working on it!
