Welcome to the newly redesigned All Sorts of Pretty! What do you think of the new look? (PS – if you’re reading this from a reader, pop on over HERE so you can see what I’m talking about.) I hope this new look feels fresh, light, and pretty while not distracting from the content of the posts. It should be easier to navigate and browse through the archives too.
When Parker and I designed the old site, I didn’t really know what I wanted (or what I was doing), but it felt good enough at the time. But I realized a while ago that my aesthetic and design taste have really changed a ton since then and a redesign has been long overdue. I came up with about a dozen different layouts (no kidding) but this one felt right…for now! There are a few minor tweaks to be made; some little things were giving Parker some trouble and I just told him to fix it later. Speaking of my husband, I wish I could shout it from the rooftops how amazing he is for coding all of this for me. He’s so smart and sweet and talented. I just love him so much. :)
A couple things to note: First, there’s now an email signup to the right. If you’d like, you can sign up and receive a weekly email from me. Just a roundup of the week’s posts in case you missed anything and maybe some fun little extras that wouldn’t get posted here. I promise not be a spammer; I of all people understand how annoying it is to get too much email. Second, there are more ads on the sidebar. This year I plan on partnering with brands and monetizing this site. But don’t worry, never at the expense of my content or respect to my readers (obviously). Some of the ads (like Google Adsense) I don’t have a lot of control over what shows up, but I will do my best to block any super annoying ones, promise.
So have a look around and let me know what you think! Hope you love it. xoxo-Katy
