New Website Design! Christine November 3, 2013 Blogging Hey guys! Well, obviously the site is receiving a makeover! It happened by accident really. I was investigating the health of my site which has been poor. Essentially, I look at statistics and where my site is ranked in the mix of the millions of sites on the web. My most troubling symptom was slow load time. You may have noticed. I sure have. There are lots of reasons why a site might be slow some of which are hard to avoid when your site is photo intensive. As I continue to find my voice I’m also coming to terms with advertising. Those ads in my side bar are attempting to make me money. Generally it’s a mere few cents a day. But as my blog grows and the health of my site improves the ads will improve, potentially earning me enough money to pay for all the crafty madness that goes on here. Anyways, a couple of days ago I was trying to locate updates to my site when I discovered that the company who created the theme I use has decided to close up shop. Gasp! Fortunately, another well known web company is taking my theme and offering to provide bug fixes and updates for the next year. My theme was taking on water and I needed to bail out. This weekend I did and now I’m in the process of rebuilding. You’ll continue to see changes so don’t freak out. Just look at this like you’d watch a window designer dress the Macy’s department store window. I won’t draw the curtain and you’ll be able to see the changes in real time. I’m working on creating more gallery pages so when you want ideas about furniture they’ll all be on one page. Won’t that be super groovy? Take a look at what’s happening so far. I have sooooo much more work to do but at least it’s functional. Since I’m in the midst of a redesign I thought it might be fun to hear from you as to what you like and don’t like. What color palette would you like to see? I of course go to blue (you guys should intervene) but I’d really like to try some other things. Do you have a favorite font? What kind of categories would you like to see separated out for easy browsing? I hope your experience on my blog will continue to be a good one!
