Well that was a doozy. We finally put on our big girl/boy pants (respectively) and made the switch over to WordPress. I kicked and screamed the whole way and to be honest, I am sure that isn’t completely over but we made it! For the past few months, Chris and I have been designing (me) and coding (him) this new virtual home that hopefully is a lot more user friendly and functional for all of you. The layout is fairly similar to our last blog, but the look (including fonts, photos and even our logo) is very much refreshed.
We wanted something fresh, of course, but the main purpose of the switcheroo was for function’s sake. The biggest change we hope you’ll notice right away is the second menu bar. Our “channels” if you will. So now, if you’re interested in seeing just the food posts, per se, you can click on Food and dive into a recipe reading frenzy.
The sidebar in each channel will eventually be customized further (Food‘s is getting there the fastest) to help you even further specify what you’d like to read. Of course the search bar, located at the very top of the page, is a fast way to find exactly what you’re looking for, too.
So look around, click around and don’t be shy about letting us know if there’s something particularly wonky going on. Making the switch over has not been without bumps, and there’s still a learning curve for me trying to figure out an entirely new platform, but I can tell this is going to be a great change for everyone.
