Okay, so if you’ve always read this via email or through a feed, you may not even notice the difference. But, to me, it’s huge! A new layout, a new header, a new sidebar (which still needs work), and super sweet mobile-responsive coding. Woot!
When this blog was just a beautiful bouncing baby, I didn’t want to spend any money on it because, at the time, that felt outlandish! Who knew if anyone would read? Or if I could keep motivated? So, I downloaded a free template and went from there. A year or so later, I switched to another free template and another before purchasing a pre-made version that was like $50 – seemed SO crazy at the time – to make some customizations.
But it never felt right.
I could never get the logo right or the colors right or the font right. The header was wrong. The sidebar was wrong… I just couldn’t get it right. Then, for Emmett’s road trip, I got the incredible silhouette of him in the bowtie and that propelled me into doing things right. Finally!
I guess at this point, this blog, my baby, has grown up and is heading off to college. Instead of tuition payments, though, I hired a designer to code my vision. This is the result. I really hope you love it as much as I do. There’s still a smidge of work to be done, and please let me know if you encounter any hiccups or issues – I want to address any problems as quickly as possible. It’s also made me realize that I finally need a camera! Crappy cell phone pics on such a pretty site just won’t cut it. I’m in the research phase, so hopefully better pics will be coming soon!
Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you for being here, for reading, for sharing your dogs and experiences with this community. I’m blown away every single day at how kind and supportive this group is, and I’m so grateful to be a part of a dog-savvy, animal-loving community. Thank you, thank you!! I would never have taken the plunge on getting a “real” design up and running without YOU! So, again, THANK YOU!
Happy weekend, everyone!
