Gosh it’s been a busy week. Between the new year, the rebrand and posting everyday, there has been a lot going on. You probably noticed that things got really quiet around here at the end of the year. We were halfway through Halloween posts and then there was nothing! There were a few reasons for this. The biggest was that my blog was hacked and it took several weeks to get back up. Thankfully all is good now. I wanted to take this chance to talk about what’s in store for A Lovely Look in 2016.
If you’re a regular visitor, you will have noticed the redesign. I have been talking about it in almost every post this week so hopefully you’ve explored the site a bit. Firstly I wanted to mention the new photos of me on my about page and sidebar. These were taken by my friend and talented photographer, Shardae Foden. Today I thought I’d go over the new design and show you my favourite parts.
Categories & Tags
This is probably my most favourite feature of the site. I just love the way the tags and categories look – the smaller pictures make it easier to quickly scan the pages to find exactly what you need.
Request a Blog Post
I’m really excited about this feature as it will allow me to produce more of the content that you want to see. I urge you to fill it out if you ever want to read my opinion or get my tips about something. You can find the request a post form here.
About me & A Lovely Look
If you’re curious about the blog, how it got started and what it’s all about, then there’s a lot of information here on the about page. I also talk about my personal life a bit.
The disclaimer page is a bit more serious but it’s something that I think is really important to share, and I think it’d be of interest to some of you. It’s where you can find out about my policies and the guidelines I’ve set for more blog around content, sponsored content, PR samples and affiliate links.
There are a few other bits I love as well that I hope you think look great – like my new logo and the confetti pattern. I’ve also got a few new features planned to be released over the next few months. I’ll be sure to talk about them when they’re live.
