I am so happy I finally get to share the new site today! I had the honor of working with Amanda Genther to design the new As Luck Would Have It – site design, branding, and all. That means I have a whole lot of new to share with you guys today so I hope you’ve had your coffee.
Let’s talk about the new look for a second, shall we? The whole site is completely new so of course everything looks different, but one of my favorite parts is the new logo. I knew I wanted to incorporate elements of nature into ALWHI’s branding but I wasn’t quite sure how that would look…until we talked about including a feather to represent lightness, freedom, and simplicity. I can’t possibly think of a better image.
Just as important as how the site looks is how much more functional everything is now. You didn’t know you’d be getting a gift today, but (surprise!) it just got a whole lot easier and more enjoyable to navigate your way around ALWHI. Let me show you around…
There are several new pages to check out in the navigation bar: an updated About Page (which includes new information about ALWHI’s purpose!), a Buttons Page where you can grab a new ALWHI button to share on your site, a Sponsor Page with advertisement and promotion information, and a Freelance Page that I will be updating soon. I’ve also added some great new sites to the Favorites Page – be sure to check them out!
All of the other navigation tools are on the sidebar and they are so simple to use – you can browse through posts by date in the archive, or choose a category you’re interested in to find all of the posts related to that topic.
Now that ALWHI has moved to a new URL and is no longer hosted by Blogger, you’ll need to subscribe again if you’ve been reading for awhile. The good news is it’ll be painless. Just go on over to the sidebar and choose your favorite way to subscribe: add the RSS feed to your reader, follow on Bloglovin (you can also do that by clicking here: Follow my blog with Bloglovin), or enter your email address to have new posts sent straight to your inbox. If you like to use the Blogger Reading List – you still can! Just click the “Add” option at the top of your reading list on the blogger homepage and add alwhiblog.com.
One of my favorite way to follow blogs is via social media. If that’s you too, you can follow me on twitter to keep up with each new post and be sure to like the new ALWHI facebook page!
I am so excited to give ALWHI a new internet home and a fresh start with the branding overhaul. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience than the one I had working with Amanda Genther. I can’t recommend her work enough. I am thrilled with the result of all of our work and I hope all of you are, too – I’m so glad you’re here and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for ALWHI!
