New Layout + Blog Changes

New Layout + Blog Changes

It looks a little different around here, doesn’t it?

I took yesterday off from writing a new post so I could bring you a new layout here at On The Creek! Every once in a while, I get the itch to change my blog around.  It usually ends in some form of disaster and I revert back to my old trusted layout.  This time was actually different!  For doing this completely on my own, I think I did a pretty decent job!

So what do this mean for you?

- The images are bigger and better.  I always had a hard time conveying my message with the old layout because of the small images, so this is a BIG win for me.

- I switched the layout to show only one post at a time.  Right now, it looks a little weird but it’s going to help out in the long run.  Why?  Because my posts are about to get better!  I’m going to be working even harder on my writing so that I’m producing better quality posts.  Think 500+ word posts!  With only having one post at a time on the main page, it allows you to focus on the current post.

- Consistent Posting.  I’ve already implemented this, but I plan to keep posting here on a consistent basis.  I’m not 100% sure on the days at this point, but for the time being, I’m going to do a Tuesday-Friday schedule.  That’s 4 new posts a week.  I’m planning on keeping my favorites (‘The Best Thing I Made..’ & ‘Link Love’) and adding some posts about blogging and maybe life topics.  I’m also working on some new recipes, so they will be here too!

It’s funny, but creating this new layout got me excited to post here again. As a creative person, I sometimes have a creative block and this week was shaping up to be one of those weeks. I wasn't inspired to create anything.  By just changing the layout, I got reinvigorated to create new content!

I know I don’t say this enough, but thanks for sticking around here at On The Creek!  I love reading your feedback and appreciate every one of you that comes to read here!  Also…HI MOM!
