My Life

New website…sorta

I worked on my site all night and it’s still pretty out of wack.

Hopefully I’ll have it up and running properly today sometime.

so sorry! (aside from the glitches are you like it so far!?)

    I really love it! I especially like the categories, beautiful.

    I think your social media icons are possibly small enough for people to miss, but then again they are repeated through out the site and I spotted them so it’s probably fine!

    I love the new layout. It’s so much cleaner. The smaller font and the left justified text is much better on my eyes, too.

    I love the concept! I’m sorry it’s been causing you so many problems. If it keep acting up my sister in law Tiana might be able to help. She runs a business call the Blog Decorator and she’s pretty good at making buggy code smooth and pretty. No plug, just helpful suggestion:) Here site is here if you’re feeling desperate:

    🙁 I don’t like it at all…it’s so much more cluttered-looking and it draws the attention away from your content (where you want the attention to be) to other little stuff like tiny text on the sidebar. 🙁 It’s sad cause your blog has been basically my FAVORITE and if a blog is hard to read I rarely come back! 🙁 Suggestion: make the blog body text larger and the sidebar a little smaller….

      I agree, shrink the side to pull focus toward your new posts

      I agree! there is too much going on and the blog part is small and too much to the right.

      I love your blog. The redesign is pretty, love the new organization. This comment from Laya is a little harsh. Although, I agree the text could be a little larger. I’m also a fan of the sidebar on the right. That way it doesn’t get in the way of reading the new posts. Honestly, the content here is so good, I don’t know how you could ever stop coming here. This is the first blog I check everyday. Great job on the redesign. Don’t let the Debbie Downers get to you. Keep smilin’,

    I love it. I think it’s just lovely and easier to find what I’m looking for. But I might switch to sidebar on the right instead of left because that’s how most blogs are. But different is good too. And you look so pretty in the new photo.

    Is there a place where all the videos are listed so that you can look through the list and then choose the one you want to view, rather than sorting through older posts? Great job on the new site! You are amazing, girl!

    the hyperlinks throughout are such a pale pale pink it’s hard to see…boo! because those are the most important part (product names etc)

    I can’t find a home button to take you back to the main page. Am I missing it? Just found you yesterday and have already tried your HAC technique-total fail, but I didn’t have the correct things! I can’t wait until your HAC kit is available! Am SO buying it!

      If you just scroll up to the top of whatever page you’re looking at and click on the “Maskcara” logo, it should take you to the home page. Hope that helps!

    I like the overall look! The index is great too! The side bar is a little large and I prefer the content to be on the left (I have to scroll over to the right inorder the read the ends of each line — maybe this is a thing with my computer tho)

    Advice from a writer: watch the typographical errors, e.g. “out of wack”. Should read “whack”. One tiny typo destroys credibility and you are a very credible lady! Otherwise excellent work!

    Did you design this site entirely on your own? If so, Bravo! I’ve been trying to update my blog site and I’m considering hiring a professional. What are your thoughts? I love your content!
