First up I have to give HUGE shout outs to the wonderfully creative and patient Jo Klima from The Darling Tree. Throughout the design process she was amazingly warm, thoughtful and inspiring – and looking around at the results, I think she hit this one out of the park. Equally as important was the awesome Spencer at We Function. He’s put together a site that not only runs like a well oiled machine but was completely accommodating and super friendly throughout the whole process. Seriously, this site would be nothing without his help and guidance. If you’re looking to update your blog I can’t recommend either of these two highly enough. They’ve both blown me away!
So what’s new around here? Well first up you’ll notice that the Daily Fluffies now appear on their own separate page, allowing the content on the homepage to stay up a little longer. Be warned though – once you’ve ended up on the Daily Fluffies page you may end up stuck in an sea of cuteness and it may be hours until you get out again!
I’ve also tried to make it easier to navigate your way around the site by combing the Search, Archives, Tags and Categories in one handy place. In addition to this, I’ve collected all the extra places you can find me around the web in one spot, so if you’re after the extra tidbits I give out on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest you can now follow me easily. Plus with links to Bloglovin (my latest obsession) and our RSS feed you’ll never miss a post. I highly suggest you follow along through Bloglovin – such a nifty tool to view all your blogs at the same time. Through Bloglovin you get to inhale all the yummy design as you view posts in their original formats – much prettier than a feed.
One of the main things I wanted to achieve with the new look was to involve YOU you more in Pretty Fluffy – this includes a new newsletter which will keep you up to date on all the Pretty Fluffy news and deals every month (sign up now!) as well easy links to allow you to submit your dog as a Daily Fluffy (you know you want to…)
Possibly my most favourite addition is the new deals section in the right hand column. This is something completely exclusive to Pretty Fluffy readers and provided only by Pretty Fluffy approved vendors just for you.
After all this, there is even still so much more to come. Behind the scenes I’ve been working on some fantastic DIY projects with some super talented people, as well as a great Shopping Guides feature which I’ll be launching soon. I’m looking forward so much to sharing it all with you.
So please enjoy the new Pretty Fluffy! I’m SO glad to be back, I can’t wait to hear what you think of the new look.
