Guess What? I'm Moving Tomorrow




Hi friends! Guess what? Tomorrow is moving day here at a la mode

Originally we'd planned on today but we're finishing a few last tweaks. I try to avoid rush and stress at all costs so waiting a day just seemed like the grown-up thing to do. Though I am passionate about this online space and have been hard at work, it is, after all, a blog. I'm not saving the world over here or anything. 

If you want to know more about the move, feel free to look at this post

Plans for this new space have been swimming around in my head for a couple of years now. It's super exciting to see those dreams take shape and become a real thing. 

As you can see from those pics above, it's been fun and messy and caffeinated around here. I've been staging DIY photo shoots at the mama desk, obsessing over font combinations, and sending my designer countless emails and texts. Is there such a thing as a virtual restraining order? Because I have stalked poor Kindel night and day with my questions and ideas. She is surely the most long-suffering fairy blogmother on the planet.  

While I have your attention, I'd love to have a bit of feedback {again} if you have a minute. And then I will leave you alone. Until tomorrow. 

If you're a regular reader of blogs, what's important to you regarding design, readability, and finding your way around?

For example, do you appreciate a large font within the post to make reading easier? {Do you feel like you often have to enlarge a blog in order to read with greater ease?} How important is it for categories be easy to find? Do you like it when there's a list of favorite posts? What are some of your pet peeves? These are just sample questions. A bit of feedback can help me better prioritize some of the final tweaks we'll be making today.

I've been a blog reader for years so I have ideas of my own. But I'm only one person with one set of opinions. I would so love to hear from others on this. 

Just leave a comment in the comment section. I really appreciate your feedback!

Thanks for reading here. Thanks for being excited with me about the move. I can't wait to show up first thing tomorrow morning and take you by the hand to my new home. 

It's such a lovely place and I'm already more grateful for it than I can say. 

See you tomorrow!

  1. The categories aren't as important, but a nice feature. What I like best is simple, clean design with easy to read fonts and lots of white space. I have a tendency towards being easily distracted, so simplicity is really appealing to me. In fact that's often why I like to read my blogs in my reader-because I can see just the text. I click over to comment, or whatever. But that's just me. I think a lot of blog readers read on mobile devices, so I like to make things less complicated for my own blog, it seems easier to read on a phone or tablet that way.

    Excited to see your new look.

    And also, I feel compelled to tell you that I'm going to She Speaks this year. Did you go last year? How was it? I'm kind of (okay, really, a lot) excited ;)

  2. I'll echo Gina's comments about less cluttered and white space. I am easily distracted by too much in the borders as well.
    Plus IMHO, I like the way you are set up now, with the helpful headers and soft colors.
