I spent the better part of the weekend installing and customizing a new blog design.
(My apologies if you stopped by and it was either in maintenance mode or a bit quirky there for a while! I tried to make the switch on Friday night when traffic tends to be lowest.)
There are still a few kinks I'm working out and a lot more tweaks I want to make over the next few days and weeks. In other words, it's a work in progress, but I'm a fan of what Reid Hoffman (founder of LinkedIn) said:
If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.
I liked my last design but it wasn't ideal for several reasons. Also, I'm tossing around some bigger plans for the future so this is the first step in the process.
What I'm most excited about
I might expound on those later, but I will say one of the things I'm most excited about is its mobile-responsiveness.
The geek in me is downright giddy about the fact that I (or you!) can now pull up BWA on any mobile device and it automatically adjusts for an enjoyable viewing experience. That is just plain sweet. No more mobile plugins needed and no more itty bitty versions of the desktop version on mobile devices. Thank you StudioPress & Genesis for making this possible. Gotta be prepared because the world is going mobile!
Check out my last two posts about Prose to see how easy you can do this too with Genesis:
P.S. I'm always open to feedback. If you have an idea that would make your experience here at BWA easier, you can shoot me an email at AmyLynnAndrews at gmail dot com. Thanks!
