What a busy (and fun) week it’s been! On Monday, Angela and I relaunched The Blog Market with a new design that we’ve been working on for months and months. If you don’t already know about The Blog Market, it’s basically my other home. Now that I’ve turned Earl Grey into more of a website and portfolio, The Blog Market is where I share coding tutorials, blogging tips, etc. Angela from If Found, Make. co-runs the site with me and shares wonderful advice for small business owners and bloggers on TBM. This site started out as a small side project and has been growing immensely every month! Who woulda thought. :)
So about the design, we really wanted to make it more interactive than just a list of blog posts. We added three featured posts up top, more sidebar widgets, reader favorites at the bottom, and more! I’m really happy with how it all turned out and I’m especially swooning hard over our new color palette, which includes coral, peach, and the prettiest deep teal. I love coming up with new color schemes! Even if it takes a lifetime to come to a decision.
In addition to our main page, we revamped all other pages including the resources directory, the about page, and a newly added archive where you can view all of our posts by category. We also included a new Shop Our Favorites page, where we’re sharing our favorite workspace accessories and tools. Check out the new site and let me know what you think!
Well I’m off to the coast for a girl’s weekend. My 25th birthday is Sunday so I figured the best way to celebrate would be at my favorite foresty beach town in Oregon. We’re staying in a small cottage with a hot tub (!!!) and I’m so flippin’ excited.
