I am sooooo super excited to announce the new website design! When I started the blog back in the spring of 2010 at the suggestion of friends and family members, I figured I’d write a bit and see where it went. Well, it went places. Nearly 400 posts later, the blog was getting hard to navigate.
Goodness, even I couldn’t find the stuff I wanted. How on earth was anyone else going to find anything besides the post they were currently reading?
I decided it was time for an upgrade.
My web team got onto it, and this is the result! Navigation menus, better tags and categories for easier browsing, a new logo (shout-out to my favorite graphic artist!), and a new theme that’s a little more conservative and hiker-friendly.
My favorite update is the “states” link – you can literally click on a state and see every trail I’ve written about in that state! How cool is that? (Shout-out to my favorite web developer!)
I found out a few things, too. Who knew that Wyoming is apparently my favorite state, with 58(!) posts, compared to my (apparent) second favorite states, Washington and Colorado, coming in at 43 posts each. I also found out that my favorite topic is apparently Views (who would have guessed? – lol), followed by Free (another “big” surprise).
I hope you like it as much as I do, and if there’s something you’d like to see, comment! You never know what might show up in the next few months 🙂
