Hey there gluten-free friends! Notice anything different? I know, I know, we didn’t change anything “big”, but we cleaned Strength and Sunshine up a lot on the backend and gave her some fresh new looks! We did try changing my colors and theme, but it just didn’t feel right to me. After 4 years, I had a hard time breaking up with my “branding”. We kept the colors, changed the logo (exactly what I wanted! See that cast iron?), revamped the menu and all the pages. The recipe index is perfect and so much better to navigate! We are still tweaking things, so the work isn’t done just yet and I’ll be doing some other really techie things over the next 2 weeks, but you all will see the benefits (believe me!)
When my fabulous designer/developer went in, she saw just how cluttered the coding and backend of my blog was from my original “designer”. I’m feeling so much better now with the “freshness”. I want to be able to deliver you guys the best content in the best ways! So we are almost done, just a few more things, and Strength and Sunshine will be ready for a brand new “school year” (haha!) Speaking of which…classes start on the 5th…I am NOT ready to go back what-so-ever!
So have a great weekend and enjoy this week’s Friday Finisher! xoxo
