Ok that’s a scary title for a post! But it’s nothing to be worried about! This week, and its only been 4 days with the new design and it’s been overwhelmingly positive! I can’t believe the feedback I have heard from readers, brands and retailers. I haven’t heard a bad thing about the site! Which makes me very happy and know it was the right thing to do. I had many reservations about chaning the design but now, I’m very happy I did it. It took from Aug of last year till now! a few months of finding a theme, then finding one, discovering it didn’t work, then getting another and working out all the kinks.
So to give you a behind the scenes look. I did a walk through install of the new design on another blog and took me 2 hours to work out the problems. Saturday night I jumped in and decided to do it at 11:45 PM. And before midnight it was done and live! Every time I go to the site I’m still amazed.
The new site has given me a renewed energy. I have had several rounds of burn out over the years and now we have a great group of guys on the site. We have added 4 new ones in the last two months. All I think will be amazing. We have a great momentum of doing some great stuff!
This means we are working to make great content. We are going to update everyone on the Staff page, go under “about” and read the bios for the guys. We aren’t going to just report but also be commentary on the market in general and bring you other ideas and opinions. I’m super excited for it to happen
This means we want you guys to participate too. Hit us up on Twitter (me, the site or any of the guys), Facebook, and email. Give us feedback and let us know what you want to see or know about! I think we’ll have some great things happening!
We will be launching our Reader Survey soon too! So stay tuned
Today was my first time popping over to the updated site, as I usually read through my RSS reader. I usually only come to the site itself when I want to leave a comment. The update is great! Clean, functional, and user-friendly! A personal favorite is the main menu always being available at the top of the page. 😉
Keep up the great work, Tim and all!
Thanks Jake! we appreciate it. We are working to redo the menu’s to make them better and also up the content! Thanks and share it with your friends!
