Well look at that!
After years of procrastination and working at a glacial speed, I’ve finally updated the look of my blog.
My last blog design was made in 2010 – it was a hand-coded, hacked-up version of WordPress, made by me, kind of an ode to my old school blogging days, which I still love in essence.
The biggest differences now:
- My blog now scales nicely on mobile devices (omg finally)
- I have lots of NEW CATEGORIES, so my older posts are easier to find
- The photos are larger
- You can now leave a comment (way hey!)
- And boring technical stuff. My posts are in a new database. New WordPress framework. This is a bought theme. I didn’t hack up the php this time (ok only two changes).
Embarrassingly, I’ve been working on this update for 3-4 years.
Why did it take me so long?
I have over 3000 posts on my blog, with my first post starting back in 2003. I’ve edited them all.
It captures 15 years of my life and my family’s life, albeit only an edited portion of my life.
Working on this was like writing a freaking autobiography. The story of my life! It was emotional. Overwhelming. Entertaining. Hilarious. So many great reads. So many funny stories. So many stories I would never share now, but I’m happy I did share them back then… and happy to keep sharing.
I try to stick to my rule of 50% fashion and 50% life stories.
I hope you like it!
If you’d like to browse around, I recommend you find a random date on the right-hand column —>(which I have left there intentionally, because the size of my archives looks ridiculous haha!).
Or take a peek at the menu on the top of the page.
Or check out my About section.
I’ll be making little tweaks here and there over the next few weeks.
Feel free to say hi in the comments!
