Where has the time gone? It’s been a year and a half since I last redesigned! If you’re using a RSS reader or are an email subscriber, I’d love it if you stopped by!
I went with a more modern, ever so slightly minimalist, type of design this time around. I wanted to think more about speed overall and responsiveness for mobile devices. I went with a slider showing the most recent four posts and in the footer, my most recent Instagram photos.
The slider and Instagram photos will not show on the smallest of mobile devices (phones). For pages, I decided to have some larger headings… because why not!
For fun I added what I’m currently reading on my sidebar. The sidebar will only display on the main homepage and single posts, otherwise it will be full-width content. I also have it so all archive pages will show only the featured image, post title, and date.
On the backend I’ve made some decent use of the Advanced Custom Fields plugin. For example if I need to display an affiliate disclaimer? Only takes checking a box. Or if I want to have a custom description for Pinterest, instead of it pulling my excerpt, I can do that just as easily.
I also went through and updated all pages. I removed some as well.
Hopefully there’s no errors or issues but if you happen to find one, please let me know so I can fix it.
