The New + Improved Design Crush.

A new site design and a move to WordPress. What else would a girl like me do over the summer?

After wanting a redesign for the past few years and getting nowhere with it myself (Why didn’t anyone tell me how hard it is to design for yourself?!) I decided to turn it over to some willing and able hands. I’ve had the pleasure of working with some ultra-talented locals – Cooper Multimedia on the site, along with And Kathleen on the new logo – to make it all come together over the past few months. They’ve helped make this transition incredibly exciting and painless. It probably doesn’t hurt that they’re my actual friends! There will also be a few new features being added over the next few weeks.

I’m sure there will be a bug or two to get worked out, but I hope you’ll take a look around. The Categories and Archives bars are collapsible, there’s search capability to make it easier to find that specific something, and all of my favorite blogs are listed under on the Links page. There’s even a little bit about me and some information on becoming a sponsor.

Cheers,
Kelly

    Congrats, Kelly! It looks wonderful. You’re going to LOVE WordPress… the switch from Blogger to WP for me has been such a welcome change. Enjoy!

    Pssst… I just clicked the RSS button in your sidebar to add the new URL to my Google Reader, but after 3 attempts I’m still getting the same error message — that the feed cannot be found. Just a head’s up that you may want to look into that! :)

    Looks great! I’m sad about the switch to truncated RSS feeds though. I understand why people do it, but I’m more likely to click-through when I know for sure there’s good content rather than having to guess because I can only see a sentence or two. :)
