You may have noticed that Lambchop Mobile has undergone a redesign with some new features added.
That is because I was accepted into the BlogHer Publishing Network. I'm so excited for this opportunity!
I'm proud of the fact that I've worked hard enough to get to this point and I'm so proud that you all have wanted to come by and see what I've been up to. I am grateful for each and every visit you make. You make me want to work harder and give you more. I could not get to this place without you. Thank you so much!
That said, I wanted to redesign the site to look a little more professional yet easy to read and navigate. I'm quite pleased with what I have. I hope you like it too!
Let me show you what's new!
My new header.
You may want to click to make bigger...
With the new header, you can easily navigate to my contact page, disclosure page and a gallery view.
I also have social media buttons so you can follow me on Pinterest, Twitter and Google+. As always, I have a search bar so you can easily find what you are looking for.
I selected a three column layout to easily fit in all the things I wanted to share. On the right, you will see my new BlogHer ad sidebar. I love that it's not obtrusive. It also shares featured posts from other BlogHer members, so you can find more great content and discover new blogs. I feel in good company since one of my favorite food bloggers is also in the BlogHer network. (That would be the supremely awesome Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen. She has amazing recipes!)
At the end of each post, I have share buttons. If you really like a post, you can easily share it on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. I will be adding a Pin It button for Pinterest very soon so you can pin anything that catches your fancy.
I also simplified the comment process. All comments are moderated now so you don't have to try to decipher the captcha. The other change with comments is that I am no longer allowing Anonymous posting. It is only because I was inundated with spam comments and it was taking time away from producing content for you. It does support OpenID and Google Accounts so if you have either, you'll be good to go!
As ever, I have labels for each post and a label sidebar on the left of the page to help you narrow your search. No need to sift through lots of pages just to see one thing. Unless you want to.
The last stop on our mini tour ends with yet another announcement. Lambchop Mobile is on Facebook!
My badge is located just under the BlogHer sidebar. Now you can officially "like" my blog and catch updates on Facebook.
I like you, do you like me?
I've also posted some of my nail art on the Facebook page and I will be adding photo albums devoted to brand swatches. My camera is breaking into a sweat just with the mere mention!
I hope you enjoy the changes and I hope that you will join me on Facebook. You've all been wonderful to me and I continue to be grateful for the input, kindness and companionship you offer.
This means, I have something to request of you...
What would you like to see more of? Less of? Nail art tutorials? Outfit photos? Kittehs?
I know many of you lurk here and I have always been okay with that but I really hope today you will leave a comment and let me know what you'd like to see and how you like my new layout. I am always open to respectful constructive criticism and keen to answer questions.
If you don't want to leave a comment here, that's cool too. You can hit me up on Twitter, Facebook and Google+! Please let me know what's on your mind and accept my sincerest gratitude.
You are the best and it is my privilege to know you!
