As promised in my initial 2016 post, I’ve been working on a new design. This is the first iteration of it, and I’m excited to reveal it to you this morning!
I don’t have it 100% where I’d like to have it, but it’s a start and takes advantage of some features that have existed in WordPress for some time that I typically haven’t used. It was more important I get it out there than getting it perfect. So it’s a great learning opportunity for me! I’m also hopeful these features will get me more motivated to share content. Without further ado, here’s what’s changed:
- In this custom Genesis Framework design, I’ve begun to use new post formats: standard, image, link, and quote
- Images will show off interesting photos I’ve taken or have found around the Internet
- Links will allow me to share links from various points of interest – I intend to use this primarily to promote local news and events that interest me
- Quotes will allow me to share a quick quote I read or hear that stands out to me – so look for that
Content Generation for Me
It’s somewhat a daunting task to think you have to put together some coherent thought in 300 or more words every time. Sometimes that little quote, link, or image is all you need or mean to say. That’s what my intent is with this site. Social media is great for in the now, but if you are getting to know me and want to look back into what content I’m sharing and producing you can use this design.
Now my site can take on a little more of my true persona. I am interested in so much more than digital marketing and web development. While they play major roles in my career path, they don’t fully explain who I am. This new format will let me share snippets when I have them quickly and easily. So expect more content and sharing here.
What do you think?
I hope you like this format! From time to time, I’m going to add more features and functionality as needed. For now, I’m curious to hear back from you. What do you think I’m missing? If you’d like more information on how I did this, let me know!
