As some of you have already noticed, we’re working on some changes here!
New background, new look, all in the hopes of making the site easier to navigate. The intent was also to blend the original look of the site (which was chocolate brown, in case you don’t recall) with the second template, which was white with those fun blue dots swirling down the side.
I understand not everyone’s going to love this, but change is good! And we’ve been working on this for a while. This was something I’d hope to unveil in 2008, and we have finally been able to make the site look the way I wanted it to. Easy to find tabs at the top of the page. Less clutter. More room for words, photos, and video.
This isn’t yet set in stone, and I’d love to hear your honest and helpful feedback. For example, one reader asked for darker, easier-to-see font, and we’ve already figured out how to fix that. There are some things we CAN fix (like font color) and others we can’t (like where the number of comments appears. It’s going to be at the top, not at the bottom now).
We’d appreciate any constructive criticism or advice you may have. I say “we,” because all I can do is direct, ask questions, and make suggestions. My husband’s figuring out the back end changes as we go along. So if any of you techie bellas have suggestions, please let us know!
What do you think of the new look?
