Well, I’m super excited to share my beautiful new blog with you guys!! I’ve finally taken the leap and moved to WordPress! I’ve also moved to my own domain, you can now find me at thegraphicsfairy.com! Yay!! I’ve got some exciting new features here that I think you are going to love, so I hope you will take the time to look around a bit while you’re here.
One thing that I love, is that the center column is now split in two, so that I can show two types of content at once. Awhile back I asked you guys, via my Facebook page, to give me some input on what you would like to see here, as far as content goes. The majority wanted to see projects, and project ideas, mixed in with the graphics. I loved that idea, but was worried that it might make it hard to find the graphics, with the other content mixed in. That’s no longer a problem with the new design, now when you come to the home page, you will be able to see all of the new graphics in the left side of the center column and in the right side, you’ll be able to see everything else, like projects, features, Brag Monday, Printables, News etc. How cool is that?!! And speaking of projects and features…
One of my favorite things is that you guys can now submit the projects that you make, using my graphics! Woohoo! You can do that by clicking on “Reader Submissions” just under the header, and selecting the “Reader Submissions” page in the drop down box. From there you can either select to submit a full Tutorial, with all the steps and photos, or if you already have your project on a blog, you can select that option and upload a photo, a small bit of info and a link to your project. I’m so excited to be able to feature your projects here on my site, and give you credit for them!! Also, you can even submit a vintage graphic, if you have something that you want to share.
Another thing that I think you will love is the Categories Search page! It has been greatly improved!! Now when you click on a category, you will get loads of thumbnails on each page, so that you can navigate through the images much more quickly, and find what you need! You can find the Category Search at the top of my blog, just under the header. We’ve also moved the Search Bar to the top of the page, so that you can find it more easily.
And lastly, the site should load quicker and be more functional over all. You’ll also be able to see more content at a glance, so that you can find the things that you are interested in quicker. Keep in mind there may be a few kinks to work out in the first week here, and I’m still learning how to use this thing, so hopefully you’ll be a little patient with me this first week. 🙂
I hope you like the new site as much as I do!!
A huge thanks to Shauna from SMD Web Design, for creating this beautiful new blog!!!
