Today I’m beyond thrilled to reveal a brand new look for Becoming you!
This makeover has been long overdue…. I’ve had a similar look since 2013! That’s 4 years!!
Last year I was set on doing a revamp, but then I ended up revamping my home and I could only really focus on one at a time!!
So, for a year I’ve put this overhaul on ice. It’s not been easy, a real test of my patience. I’ve been feeling frustrated and bored with my look for a while. (looking at the same site MULTIPLE times a day will do that!) I wanted to freshen things up for myself and for my loyal readers… and, of course, the hope is that my new look will entice new readers too! (Tell your friends!!)
Anyway, I finally found some time (and cash!!) to put towards this new look….. And I’m SOOOOO excited about it.
My blog is basically my baby, my youngest child… and it hasn’t had new clothes for quite some time and most definitely had outgrown it’s old ones. It needed some attention!
Here is a little sneak peek of the NEW home page… but there’s so much more to see so be sure to head on over to the home page at www.becomingyou.co.za
To see how far Becoming you has come here are a few screenshots of sites gone by… all the way back from early 2011 to the present!
2010 (some of the old pics no longer load, the background was actually all black too!)
And my very first personal blog….
WOW what a journey it’s been! Such an interesting exercise to see the evolution of my blog (and myself!)
Soooooo – What do you think of the new design???
I’d LOVE to hear from you all about what you love about the new look (and if you find you hate it let me know too!) With all new things it might take some time to get used to but I hope you will stick around and find that it’s even more enjoyable. The main change is to the front page. The new look opens up the content in a whole new way and makes it much easier to see posts you might have missed, or ones that grab your attention or appeal to you and your interests. I realise that not everything on my blog is for everyone, but the beauty of this new layout is that you should be able to find the content you want much faster as things are now broken down into categories.
The blog post pages remain pretty similar in layout so you may not even notice the change if you’ve clicked straight onto a blog post… if that’s the case just click on the header (that’s new too!) and go to the home page to see what I’m talking about.
Over the next few days you may notice a few glitches with the content or images as I resize and update a few posts to bring them in line with the new look. The biggest issue will probably be with the images. Please bear with me. And feel free to point out any problems you might have so that I can address them asap. I NEED the feedback. I”m just one person and I can’t see everything so please let me know!
So, that’s it!
I hope you love it as much as I do 😉
To my loyal readers and fans…
Thank you for all your support over the past 6 years. I surely wouldn’t be here without your loyal support and I look forward to seeing you around these parts a whole lot more… P.S. Don’t forget to invite your friends to come and join me over here for inspiring daily content. I’m excited to expand the reach of Becoming you and take it to even greater heights!
