Today is the day guys. I get to talk to you about the new design!
I have spent about 72 hours doing exactly what you see above. I have taken 3 breaks to do workout videos (I don't want my body to decay from non-movement), 4 breaks to go to the bathroom, 6 breaks to take the dog out, 1 shower break, and about 17 coffee breaks. I think I microwaved a couple veggie burgers and ate them solo, with ketchup on the side. If you pay attention, you will notice my priorities are not in order, and I hold my pee way too much.
All in all though, I am coming back to humanity with a new pep in my step, because I love what has happened. I have learned so much (I will share some awesome new tips, tricks and tutorials with you after vacay!) and finally feel like this layout is one that I can work with and grow with for a while now.
Or at least until the next time I get inspired...
There are a lot of features that have stayed the same, but just look different. And there are other features that are brand new!! Take time to poke around and see for yourselves.
So I have added a Daily Reads section to the menu bar. I LOVE when I find a blog that I really enjoy, and they have a list of blogs that THEY really enjoy, because I will mostly likely love all of them as well, a
I have also added a My Latest Tunes item to my right sidebar. I have always loved music and songwriting, but have never found a platform that I really enjoyed sharing it through (or one that didn't make me want to run for the hills and crap my pants out of fear and embarrassment). You guys have been an amazing audience so far, and I'm gaining some confidence! Bottom line, is I want to keep sharing. So you can find whatever latest creation I have shared, here.
To top off the new additions, I have added a News Flash section in the bottom of my left sidebar. You can head there at any time and keep up to date on all the latest trends. Just kidding. I will just let you know what is going on at Thriftary, just in case, God forbid, you miss a day. I know. Sometimes world catastrophes happen, and you just can't make it.
And I think that about covers it! For now... Dun dun dun...
To be honest, there is a lot to get excited about. I really wanted to simplify the layout of Thriftary so that I can focus on better content. Vlogs, photography, design, photo stories... I mean the possibilities are endless.
I have countless emails with my sister , for the past couple weeks (most of which are at 1am my time, 2am her time) dreaming and laughing about the crazy crap we could put on our blogs. Some of it, I would be embarrassed for my grandmothers to see (Hi Mina! Hi Memere! Hi Gram!), so they will probably stay in their email form, but others... Oh... they are happening.
So get pumped guys. And make sure that you use my handy dandy cute social media icons in the upper right hand corner to follow Thriftary all around social media land so that you can stay posted!!! Also, for those of you not all up in the terminology of blog world, please take note of the Join This Site link in the upper right hand side of the blog. By you joining, I can stay posted on who is reading, how many of you are reading,
Let me know if you guys have any questions or are having any issues with the new layout! I would just LOVE to hear from you.
You. Guys. Are. The. Best.
