It’s a new month, and I’m so happy to be starting it off by launching my new and improved blog. I’m very excited about the new look and improved features!
The decision was made to have my blog professionally redesigned at the end of the summer. I really wanted a site that better reflected my personal style. I had a vague idea of what I was looking for in terms of aesthetics and functionality. However, I could have spent the rest of my life on the tech stuff with no hope of getting it right.
I feel so fortunate to have found Liz at Sweet Simplicity Designs! She was a pleasure to work with. She’s super creative, a great communicator, and meets all deadlines. Oh, and I should probably mention that she was very patient with all of my silly technical questions. She even created some Vimeo tutorials just for me!
Liz also referred me to Shaylee Smith for WordPress maintenance and Yoast and Popupally configuration. Shaylee was also very responsive, patient, and knowledgable. It’s a relief to know that the site will always be updated, safe, and secure.
I’ve heard designer horror stories from fellow bloggers and I’m grateful that I can say the whole process went very smoothly for me. It’s all because of Liz and Shaylee. (And no, I am not receiving any commission to say so. 😉 )
In other good news, the amount of time I was able to save by delegating all this techy stuff allowed me to do what it is I really love to do, READ! It’s true that I did slow down a bit. I have many
excuses reasons, including spending nine nights in Italy and eating fabulous dinners too numerous to mention all of the family obligations you’d expect from any self-sacrificing woman, but I was able to read several great titles including these:
Stay tuned for full reviews and some exciting giveaways in the days to come.
I’d love your feedback on the new look and any suggestions you might have as well. I’m sure there will be little things that will need to be tweaked as I become more familiar with the functionality. But for now, I’m just happy to get back to blogging!
