A couple of months ago, you may have noticed that my little blog got a new look. My very sweet, dear blogging friend, Marina, from Penny Lane Designs, worked her beautiful magic again on my blog.
Back in December I contacted Marina and started talking to her about my ideas and my vision. I wanted everything to be more organized and user friendly.
I wanted to make things easy for potential advertisers.
I wanted to clean up the design and change out the header photos. And she did it. I was truly blown away with the end results! I didn’t have specific plans for the color scheme, but after looking at lots of paint swatches I came up with a color palette that I thought would be easy on the eyes.
In June, she let me know that she’d installed the new design. After months of brainstorming and Marina working her magic, it was done!
So here is what you can find with the new design:
A new header.
A scrolling “featured posts” section. I may update these at some point, but these are some of the more “popular posts” on my blog, so I wanted to give readers easy access to those.
I’m using categories! Finally! There’s a little box in the sidebar where you can find the archives, categories, and search feature.
Pretty little buttons for the more popular categories. These are the categories that I use most often or used to use a lot. My “home tour” is in the “from my home” section. All of my posts on faith and family are in the “faith and family” category. And the same goes for recipes, wedding, etc.
Easy ways to connect via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, email, and RSS feed.
You can subscribe to my blog via email if you’d like.
A new “Facebook like” button in the sidebar so we can connect via Facebook.
A sponsor information page. This is very user friendly. If you are interested in sponsoring my blog, you can just click there and the whole thing is very self-explanatory. Cuts down on a lot of email back-and-forth.
So if you’re reading in a Reader, come visit and click around. I’d love to know what you think! I hope it’s easy to use and fun to read.
