We’ve been working hard this weekend to update our site as we had run out of storage space on our previous iteration and I had grown frustrated with the disorganized layout. Not that there is anyone to blame for that disorganized layout outside of myself, but I was looking for an easier/better way to stay on top of it. Melissa and I spent the last couple of days pouring over different designs and ideas, ultimately settling on the format you are seeing.
Along with the new layout, we’re looking at this as a re-launch of sorts. We’ll be releasing a monthly podcast (the first episode will drop in the next couple of days), writing some comprehensive guides over the next month and are kicking around the idea of doing some video posts. While I certainly prefer writing to other media options, I know that not everyone agrees with that. If you have ideas for the blog, please let us know in the comments!
As for this site, I’ll give a quick tour. Most of the layout isn’t much of a departure from our old iteration. Specifically, all of our most recent posts are listed chronologically on the home page. There is also our featured posts which, most of the time, will be our most recent as well. At the very top of our home page are links to contact us and to help support the blog.
The right side of the page is the biggest change to the layout. On the far right, resides all of the categories for our posts. If there is a certain category that you are looking for, click on one of those links and that will send you to all of our posts on that category/subject. Beneath that lies our Social Media accounts and ways to follow the blog via social media.
Just to the left of that far-right column is another way to look through our categories, with our five most recent posts in a certain category listed. You can either click on a specific post or on the whole category to find out more on the subject. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, there is a search feature on the top right of the page.
I’m hoping that everyone enjoys the new look! Please let us know any feedback, we are open to other changes.
Thank you for reading and let us know if you have any questions or thoughts! You can do that below in the comments. Have a great day!
