Hello everyone! I am all finished with the general design and new updated look of the website! Yay! I have worked very hard the last 24-hours on making it how I want it to be. It was actually a lot easier than I thought despite some issues and headaches caused from a few coding errors to make my post full width!
We prevailed though even with our limited experience in this. I didn’t go crazy with changes, I really always loved the general feel of my site and didn’t want to loose that. The general soul of my site has stayed the same, just made some improvements. At least, what I hope are improvements. I was honestly hoping to get some opinions on that which is the sole purpose of me writing this very short and quick post. If you have a moment, and don’t mind taking a look at my homepage and browsing the site for a second, I would be very grateful. Leave me a comment letting me know your thoughts about the look, design, formatting, and feel of my site. Now keep in mind that the work isn’t 100% done because on actual post, the photos are much too large and kind of look funky too me. I will be reformatting every post tomorrow to fix this and make the actual post look more smooth. So that is still a work in progress.
Refreshing my site with a new look hasn’t been a terrible process. It was a lot easier this time then when I first created my blog. That process I believe took me an entire week to complete before I was happy with how it look not 24-hours like this time. This is probably due to the fact I had my site already established and wasn’t starting from zero and making something from scratch. Now one thing I am really wanting to know, is should my post be full width with no sidebars showing, just a full page on its own for the post, or should it be scaled down a bit and show the site’s sidebars? An opinion on that would be so helpful because as of right now, I can’t decide which I prefer, so thoughts please! It takes only a matter of seconds to change so I am putting that to a vote. Let me know what your answers in the comments. That about sums up things for the weekend. Monday I will have brand new post coming out! Thank you!
Ps. Below is a photo of the new homepage layout with its feature slideshow, menus, sidebars, and recent post feeds. I also just realized as I’m editing and previewing this post that the photo I attached below no matter how small I scale it, looks full sized in the post. All my photos look too large to me, so this is a problem for Saturday afternoon. haha! This new layout is definitely going to be make how I format my post different from now and will take getting used to!
