Blog Redesign: Phase One

I mentioned a site overhaul awhile ago and thought I’d provide a quick update today along with a few before and after shots! I’m officially calling this “Phase One” because it now looks like there will be a Phase Two in a couple weeks, but more on that shortly. Phase One is completed and I love the cleaner look of the site! My favorite item is the menu now located at the top of the page, with several drop down links below each item. It’s easier to find specific projects, ideas for renters, featured series, etc. The search bar is also more prominent in this new design.

There’s a couple features that didn’t work out as we’d planned, but Phase Two will cover those (fun social icons, pop ups suggesting posts you’d like, and more). Stay tuned for the next phase of this project, which will likely involve switching from wordpress to another host. I’m currently doing a bit of research into Blogger, Square Space and a few others. Fellow bloggers, I’d love to hear your thoughts! What platform are you using and why do you like it?┬áComment below! In the meantime, check out a few before and after screenshots to see the transformation and poke around the site to see all of the new features.
