It may have taken me the better part of a month, but I am now very excited to announce that the redesign of my blog is complete, and I couldn’t be happier with it.
The reason why it took me so long is not only because of the Christmas and New Year holidays but also because I had let the site, the server and some plugins fall way behind in terms updates. This meant that finally updating the site caused some major issues and to cut a long story short I ended up starting from scratch with a brand new install.
Although, thinking about it now, this may have ended up to be a blessing in disguise as it allowed me a clean slate on which to build, without any old plugins or pieces of code hiding away in background causing the site to run slow.
The picture below shows how the old site used to look and personally I think this new one is a massive improvement.
The eagle-eyed among you may have also spotted that I have a new logo, I hope you like it.
The homepage now has links to each of the different sections of the site such as Destinations, My Travels, Inspiration and Travel Advice. Making it easier to find what you’re searching for and also some content that is usually lost to the back of the blog after a long time.
As well as redesigning the site I have also reworked my About Me page (come and say hello) and also added some new pages such as New Here? and my Press Page. I also have some other great features that I hope to be implementing soon, so be sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
What do you think of the redesign, have a look around and please let me know if you come across any issues or errors in the comments below and I will try to fix them as soon as possible.
