I am excited to introduce you to the new look of my blog!!!
The whole process from the design stage until the final touch has been a long one, filled with a lot of learning for me. It has also given me a chance to review and rethink what this blog is about.
You see, I created this blog in 2011 with zero knowledge of how to make one. But this time I had a professional web designer rebuild it according to my ideas and wants. I am very happy that I made the decision to use a web designer – The Petite Co.
I looked at so many different websites for inspiration. There are so many nice websites out there… I chose to go for a minimal design with large white spaces. This allows you to be able to read the content as you read something on a clean piece of white paper. And you can look at the pictures, nothing else but the pictures, without any distraction : ) … I know I have put some pressure on myself – I have to ensure that I post only really good pictures now since there are no distractions! (This is good.)
Just be patient though, I am still learning, I am getting there… I think this simple design is the best for the blog at the moment. I just hope you don’t find it too simple.
Okay, even though it is quite easy to find your way around this simple “home”, I will give you a brief tour anyway.
On the top, you’ll find the categories. I have changed these a bit. At the moment there are 5 of them: Jewelry, Lifestyle, Photography, Travels and Life. And if you click on any of them you will go to another page where you will see a summary of the posts under that category (with images!).
Below every post, I use tags as well in case you want to find anything related to those words and a share button so you can share the post to anyone using different media. There is also a comment box in every post now. I look forward to get to know you there.
Other than that, you can search anything in the blog through search and archives, located at the bottom of the blog.
Ahh, and social media! Click on any of them, and let’s be friends.
The main new thing of this blog is the email updates you will receive from me directly to your email inbox, only two times in a month, not more :) should you choose to. Go ahead and sign up below. Your email address will remain confidential with me. I am using a safe application for that. And if you ever change your mind, you can unsubscribe anytime.
I guess that’s about it.. How do you like the new look?
