Oh, how I long for all those oodles of time I used to have fiddling with fonts and fretting over layout choices.
This website redesign was not that. This was a whole lot of: "That doesn't look horrible, let's do that."
Although I guess I should admit that I spent a while on the banner but that's only because Photoshop Elements is — and I say this as someone with a lot of Adobe experience — completely counter-intuitive and offensively frustrating. If I thought there were a better image editing program for Macs I would buy it in an instant.
But apparently it's good that I spent time on the banner because it's now GIGANTIC. I don't know how I feel about that. I think I've decided it's sort of neat. Like the cover of a book and then you "look inside" by scrolling down. At least, that's what I'm going to tell myself because I really don't know how I would redesign it.
Also a very cool new addition is a button and grab box for FOR(m)UM, the forum I'm hosting for moms (dads are more than welcome, just not represented yet!) of multiples with cerebral palsy. I'm totally stoked about this forum and I'm so happy that people are finding connections there. If you would like to tell your friends/readers about it, please do and grab the button on the upper right while you're at it. (I know, it would be nice if the button were bigger, but I can't figure out how to do that yet. It would also be nice if I had a button for my actual blog... but it looks like that will have to wait for the next time I can string more than 15 baby-free minutes together.)
Oh, and if you're wondering why the green accents — it's the awareness ribbon color for cerebral palsy.
So, whaddya think?
