I wanted to share with you some of the changes that I have made to the Girl. Inspired. blog design over the last few weeks. It has been a slow and grueling process (because I’m the opposite of tech savvy), but I really needed some sprucing up and I am loving the changes!! Before I show you around a little, though, I also wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all of your support and commentary on my lace dress post from Friday – I was super nervous to post it and you guys just really made me feel wonderful and encouraged to continue sewing for myself, so thank you!
At the very top of the page, you will find quick links to stay connected with Girl. Inspired. via social media, RSS feed, and email.
Just below the top of the page, you will find links to a variety of free-standing pages on the blog. Please, explore!! As I get myself organized and try to implement a more structured posting schedule, I also wanted to have the design of the blog easier for you to navigate. I’ve done a lot of updating, to the overall design aesthetic, but more importantly, to easier navigation in the backlinks that you will find under these various page tabs. The pages will look something like this:
You should be able to easily click on the picture of the post you’d like to see and it will take you directly there – if you find any broken or erroneous links, do let me know!! I will continue to update these pages to include recent and ongoing projects on the blog.
Also at the top of the blog, you will find rotating pictures that link directly to some of my recent or most popular posts. These will change regularly, but all highlighted posts will remain linked under their categorical page.
As you scroll down the page, you will find a whole host of additional information and links in the right-hand sidebar.
In addition to options to search the blog and subscribe via email, you will find links to my sponsors and links to other recent/popular posts. These will also be rotated occasionally!
Also, I want to connect with YOU! This is one of my main goals for Girl. Inspired. this year. I tend to get overwhelmed with my email inbox, but I do love to hear from you. If you leave a comment or question on a blog post, I am now aiming to respond to you within the comments section on the blog – I think this will help everyone! If you don’t hear back from me and you have a question, please feel free to bug me again! Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org Sometimes, things just get buried – it doesn’t mean you’re not important to me!
Over the next few weeks, I will also be implementing some new project/post goals of mine, so keep a look out for those! I think you’re going to love where we’re heading! See you tomorrow!
