It’s official, my new website (redesigned using WordPress!) is up and running, and it’s lookin’ pretty spiffy around here. There have already been so many great responses to it, so let me just say a big “Thank you!” to everyone who’s taken the time to check out the new site! As with anything new, there are still things that need tweaking, and a couple of you have already caught a few of those things – good eye! I’ll be updating things in the coming days and weeks, so please keeping stopping by to see what’s new. In fact, I think a handy little list of all the big plans I have might be helpful. So here you go, a list of everything you can expect to see on the site in the next few weeks:
1. MORE COPY. You may have noticed some of the copy is pretty slim on the portfolio pieces, well that’s going to change. I intend to give a helpful explanation about each project including project goals, why certain choices were made and how the website, logo etc came to look the way it does. I think this will be really helpful to potential clients perusing my work.
2. MORE PHOTOS. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about the web, it’s that images make all the difference, especially on blogs. It’s always so defeating to read the first paragraph about someone’s amazing kitchen redesign and then to excitedly scroll down, looking for the photos, only to find three teeny tiny images you can barely see. Annoying. Well, you won’t find that here. No-sir-ree-bob, I’ll be adding photos like a crazy woman. More photos of my work. More photos on my blog. More photos!
3. Speaking of more photos on my blog…How about MORE BLOG POSTS in general? Lots more. My old site didn’t have a blog, so I created one using Blogger. It was great for a long time, but people couldn’t keep track of all the addresses, which complicated things a bit. This is one of the reasons I chose to redesign my site using WordPress. Being able to combine my blog with the rest of my site was huge. Everything is much more streamlined now, and people don’t have to go to two different spots and remember two different web addresses anymore. Everything is together in one neat little package at one easy-to-remember location. I have more than a hundred posts to move over from Blogger, plus I have big plans for new posts here. First up, I know some of you have been patiently waiting for me to post about our road trip experiences (I’m talking to you Mom.). Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten. Road trip deets are coming soon!
So there you have it. Lots of exciting stuff happening over here, so please stop by often and tell your friends. And now, lest I be guilty of not adding any photos (the importance of which was discussed in item #2 above), here’s a big, beautiful photo for ya…
