Say goodbye to the old & hello to the new.
ArtiatesiaDeal.com has a new look.
Last week I decided to go on a blogging break and in those 7 days I had plenty of time to reflect on my next steps in this blogging world. I thought about redesigning my blog but none of the themes I found spoke to me. Plus I wanted to take new photos to use. Like I normally do with things regarding myself I convince myself to wait until I had “this and that in place”. Well I got tired of pushing things to the wayside.
So at some point on Saturday I found myself on a site looking at themes and notice that one in particular that I had like had got an update. I instantly fell in love and said, “That’s the theme that I want!”. I didn’t immediately push the purchase button though. I needed to make sure because I’m not in the position to be wasting money on something that I can easily not like after a few days. As I been doing recently, I weighted my options and decided that it was in the best decision. And it seem as soon as I let go of my hangups and hit that button I had tons of blog post ideas pop into my head. I didn’t want to return to blogging with my old theme so I made a list of changes I could make to the theme right away so I could start back blogging with a fresh new outlook.
In case you are new to my blog or just want a reminder, here what my blog use to look like.
Why I decided it was time for a change?
Even though I like my old theme, I wasn’t able to use a lot of the new elements that came along with WordPress 3.0, such as the custom menus. Since I know my way around HTML/CSS I was able to give my blog the design elements that I wanted. There was a lot more that I want to do but just decided have the time or patience to get real deep into the PHP. So that meant it was time for a change and no more putting it off. I am so please that I have put the wheels in motion and started the redesign. I still have some more ideas to put into place and will be tweaking it as I go.
So what do you think. Do you like the new look?
