I know many of you have signed off for the night, but I made a few changes in how the site looks and just wanted to fill you in.
First, how great is the new background artwork? Beautiful, colorful; it leaves no doubt whom we are showing love for! Thank you, Elizabeth!
Secondly, I have turned off the ability to make anymore comments on the earliest posts to the blog. New people were coming everyday, and people were getting lost in where to comment to keep their conversations going. So going forward, I think we should try to do as we did at our old home and switch to commenting on the newest post only whenever a new one goes up. To help with this, I will keep disallowing new comments on the old post when a new one goes up. Example: you should be able to comment on this post, but not on any other post on the blog.
And lastly, I received an email from Lynne today, and she suggested that our Welcome Post should be the first post new readers see when they come to our blog for the first time. Makes sense, since it talks about our history and the expectations for the site. I was able to pin it so it is always the first blog piece, and all the new posts start after that. I’m not sure that will be the best way in the long run, but if it gets too confusing, I have the option to make it our “About” page, and I believe it will then be the first page everyone sees. I will have to play with that a little bit to get it right.
Now, some of these changes came about for some very exciting reasons, but we are still finalizing some details, so I’m not going to reveal them just yet. I think you guys will be very pleased about them–I know I’m super excited 😀 –so stay tuned! 😉
