OSN has a new design

February 16th 2017 1 minute to read

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.

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.

I also decided to use Google’s reCAPTCHA on my Contact page and Question & Answer page. I figured it might be a bit easier to use than answering a math question for SPAM prevention.

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.

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.

This post is over a year old which means the content may be outdated or no longer accurate.



I only got four hours of broken-up sleep last night. I’ve never been good at napping. I’m just left in this exhausted awake state of being.


Happy/Blessed Beltane, everyone!

Playing Catch-Up

I am pretty sure the last two weeks are catching up because I am beyond exhausted today. Trying to get caught up with the online world.

I Redesigned, Again

I redesigned OSN. It looks best at higher screen resolutions. That’s where you get all of the fancy effects. It’s fine on mobile but absolutely shines on a computer. Hopefully, everything works across the board. I tried to make the homepage an actual one, harkening back to the olden days of blogging.
