MML gets a new look

Though I normally don’t work over the weekends, this last one was an exception.

Mr. Lively generously devoted his Saturday to helping me spruce up things on MML. Since moving to WordPress.org two and a half years ago, I’ve made tweaks to the blog look, but nothing this major.

Last week the blog looked something like this:

Which wasn’t all that bad, but wasn’t looking as fresh as I’d like.

So out went the logo, coral header, and outdated nav bar. And in came a lighter, fresher, more “designer-y” look.

I’m in love.

It got me so excited that I did some spring winter cleaning on the additional pages and images on the nav bar on Sunday.

This along with my new camera skills (still in the making) is getting me pretty excited for MML in 2012.

I have a good feeling about MML this year. And I thank you for sticking with me!

    Love the new look! Like you said about new year’s resolutions/goals/intentions, you didn’t “fix” the site. You simplified it, made it fresher, and more “you.”

    Love the design of the new look, but something is not right when viewed on Google Chrome. I have Chrome on both my PC laptop and my Mac, and both have the same issues with the new design. Let me know if you want me to email you screenshots!

  3. I also use Chrome and had a bit of a hiccup (the header background was still coral and cutting off the “e” in Life) but after I refreshed the page it cleared up. Just needed to clear it’s memory of the old page!

    Love the new look, Jess! Feels so fresh, light, and airy- perfect for the new year! I’m curious- what elements did you feel you needed a web designer for? I’m about to do a blog redesign and I’d like to do most of it myself but would imagine I’ll have to hire some help! I’d love to get your feedback!

  7. I have just watched your videos! great to see you talking! you are as good as I imagined! thanks for the advices!

  9. the new design looks great! subtle but definitely with a fresher feel!
    P.S. I grabbed Flipboard from the App store after you talked about it last week, and there it sat until I tried it out last night. You were right! It is amazing… totally changes the game for my Google Reader!
    Thank you for your constant inspiration
