Things are changing around here at Cre8tive. Thanks to my nephew Brady, my new assistant, I went to a two column layout, which I love so much better. I think it is so much easier to read a two column site, the pictures look better, the text doesn’t look like you are writing a book when you post a paragraph, it all just flows so much better. We are still working on a few things, but overall I am very happy with the layout and flow of how it all looks. We even upgraded to a mobile version to make it easier to read my blog on a mobile device. Oh I just love the minds of the young, they make it look so easy, I am going to be so high tech around here having Brady helping me with all those technical things I am challenged in, blogging life is so much better now that I have him.
I also finally got around to adding the links to the articles on my side bar that Houzz has featured on my design work
It is such an honor to be included in their Feature Ideabooks, it’s time I showcased them. The one about Shannon and Nate’s kitchen was a surprise because the author wrote it as if Shannon and I were the only ones that did all the work. Luckily, Nate didn’t get his feelings hurt.
I also have a new button on the sidebar that shows my recent pins on Pinterest, the pictures change daily, sometimes hourly because I am ALWAYS pinning. I don’t just pin for me, I found it is a great way pin great deals on items I come across, ideas on how to use them, or ways to create the look. Like this beautiful throw I found on Fab.com
I have been using my Facebook page A LOT more as well. I don’t know why I haven’t used Facebook in the past. But now I realize it is a quick and easy way to post progress pictures of the stuff I am working on that I usually don’t get around to putting on my blog.
Like the headboard I am working on that I shared last week on my Facebook page
Or like the fabrics I just ordered from Calico Corners for to freshen up the living room at our River house
I am challenged when it comes to writing posts on my blog, but I have SO much to share when it comes to design and ideas! I thought the only way for me to that was through my blog, but now I realize social media is really where I am more comfortable. I don’t feel the pressure when I pin on Pinterest or post on Facebook like I do when I write a post. The funny thing is, I have more followers on Pinterest and Facebook than I do on my blog. I am pretty sure that is because I interact and use those two sites a lot more than my one or two posts a week on my blog. So if you really want to know what I am up to or what great deals I find, you can follow me on Facebook or Pinterest. You will see I have a lot more ideas and projects going on than what I show here on my blog, plus I love the quick interact you get using Facebook. I can’t wait to get more acquainted with you!
PS…how do you like the new layout?
