I have a few hobbies that I absolutely love. Website design probably ranks number one. I recently saw on Oprah a segment on stay-at-home moms (SAHMs) that featured a blogger, Heather Armstrong from dooce.com. She began blogging about post-partum depression, which is a very serious disease that affects many many mothers worldwide. Her site eventually picked up a lot of momentum, and I have begun to visit it daily. I am not a fan of her style of writing, but I think her blog has some best practices that I plan to benchmark and eventually incorporated into spelhouseLove.
I am motivated to give my blog an overhaul, and I have contracted a designer to help me implement my vision. I used elance to help me out with this one. I have been pleasantly surprised by the price and turn around time. I am planning on modifying the wordpress template myself. I believe I know how to do it, after attempting to customize the Lion’s blog, but the time that it took was immense, and there are several bugs on his site, which I why it just sort of fell to the wayside.
Anyway, I hope to have a finished project by the end of the summer. In the meantime, I am laying out the structure and decided on which elements to focus and feature.
