What's new besides my blog design? *thanks again to the lovely Sophie!
Of course, almost everything is new here! Except me, you'll still have the same old me.
The "athenaeum" section is now in the "about me" section, yes, I finally made one!
My most popular content which was floating all over the place on my old side bar was incorporated into a much cleaner version to hyperlinks in the header.
I love reading emails about my marriage and Scott, but I thought it'd be best to put it in a labeled section. I also get a lot of comments and emails asking about my cameras, and I'm currently working on a separate page for this. I thought it would be easy, but I don't want to discriminate against any of my cameras, so this is a bit of a longer process than expected (oh, boy!)
I'll also be going through my blog posts (over a year's worth!) and re-labeling everything for a much more organized archive label.
I do have favorite blogs I want to show off, and I'm currently getting those buttons together to have a proper page to display my daily reads.
If you notice on my side bar, I kept the section, "you're my favorite this week". I wanted to highlight a blog for a week so they wouldn't get lost amongst tons of links, buttons and banners. Whether it's the writing, the photography, the content, or if I find myself just getting lost in the site (which is what makes a great blog, right?), it'll be a blog worth visiting.
I'm also reviving the Introduction series (remember those, old faithful readers?), and an array of assets to keep my blog the way I want it- simple, clean but full of content. I threw scheduled blogging out the window. I work from home and my job doesn't have a set schedule, so why should I? This hobby was meant to just that- a hobby.
6,768 Miles Apart is no longer for this time. If it will get a revival, I don't know, but I know Ana B. and I were in a season of growth and now that we have grown with the series, who knows what's next? I value each photo we had, our friendship and can give full merit to the series for my love for photography and blogging. When Ana B., and I are both ready, I can't wait to move forward with what has become my favorite chapter of our.city.lights.
Not only did my blog have a makeover, but in a way, I felt I did, too. I'm working on a personal series that is long overdue (you'll know when it launches), I've come back refreshed, with a new disposition on blogging. The word to describe my blogging experience? Growth. Hopefully, at it's best.
