Hey everyone, I just thought I’d let you know of some new changes on here. I’ve been testing out some different features on this site, just for fun, and I really like the way it looks now. So I thought I’d write this post, letting you know about some of these small changes I made.
Most of these changes have to do with the menu on the left. It definitely has a lot more content now.
1) I added some social media icons (with the links to my accounts) at the top of the menu (Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest; unfortunately, the plugin I use would only let me add those 3). You can still find the links to all my social media pages here.
2) I added the ARCHIVES section. For the longest time, I struggled with creating / finding something so I could put the archives on my site, but I eventually decided to use an archives plugin I found. I actually didn’t know that the archives were already there, and I was so happy to figure that out. I’m debating whether I should keep the Archives section at the top of the page or not; feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.
3) Speaking of the comments… I finally decided to add a Contact Us section to the site! It’s called #Ask AKPOV, and it’s for those times when I can’t think of anything to write about. Sometimes, I need some inspiration, so feel free to send me any questions you may have and it could spark an idea for a new post!
4) Back to the previously-mentioned left side of the website… I also changed up the Categories a bit… I put them in a drop-down menu. And if you’re wondering why there are numbers next to the category names, I also added the number of posts in each category next to the names.
So, that’s all I did to the site. It’s not a lot, but the changes are definitely noticeable. Be sure to let me know in the comments what you think of the new changes, and let me know if you have any ideas for new blog posts 🙂
