I’m so stinkin’ excited to FINALLY unveil my new and improved blog design!! It’s time to celebrate!!
As many of you may know, I’m a former website developer (by trade). I designed stampwithtami.com, and many other websites and blogs over the past 14 years. It has been the hardest thing for me to hire someone to do my new site for me, but I finally gave in. Updating the blog has been on my “to do” list for 2 years now, and it wasn’t getting done. Like an old house that you keep adding additions on, my site was an “old” platform that I was adding “additions” on to and it needed a complete overhaul from scratch!
It’s a big site, therefore it was a big job and we ran into lots of snags and “fun” challenges along the way. If you’ve been following me on Facebook you know it was originally scheduled to be rolled out with the new catalog release, but at the last minute testing we found we needed to change a few things.
Special thanks to Susan at Oh, Hello Designs, for all of her hard work through this process.Yep, her company name even matches a Stampin Up stamp set … totally be coincidence.
OUT WITH THE OLD: Gone is the old picture of me and the life sized stampin’ around wheel! I will miss it. This photo was not photoshoped BTW, that was a real wheel prop SU used to bring on cruises and let us take pictures with. Gone are also all of the errors and outdated code. I’ve had this site for almost 10 years, the internet was just a baby when stampwithtami.com was born – things get outdated quickly around here on the world wide web lol.
IN WITH THE NEW: The new site is totally built to be”user friendly” and functional. My goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to find ideas and inspiration, without getting lost in “clicks” and having to “back button” out lol.
Here are just some of the functions
- Enhanced Search feature – making it easier for you to find what you are looking for on the site
- Menus are now uniform across the entire site
- Home page is now a Dashboard View of What’s New across all of my sites (my blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google*, etc)
- Videos are even easier to find
- Mobile friendly design works great on your phones and tablets
- the list goes on…
