If you’re reading this post in an RSS feed you may want to take two seconds to click through and view the brand new incarnation of ErinCooks.com. After a year and a half of bright blue and green and some frankly absurd looking potholders I finally coerced CK into sitting down and helping me work out a new design. You’d think that living with a web developer would be an asset when you have a blog, but here’s the rub, no one wants to code for their girlfriend when they have to code for their job all day.
I just couldn’t resist the whimsical tea party background I ended up selecting, and of course there had to be a few hints of pink here and there. We even gave a subtle nod to ErinCooks 1.0 by using the often maligned font Curlz MT again as an accent. But what really made this whole redesign seamless (and frankly almost effortless) was our decision to utilize the amazing Thesis WordPress theme. The customization ability and ease of use of this product is phenomenal. I’d highly advise you to invest in a copy if you’re in the market for a great new look for your own blog.
So what do you think? Have I finally jumped the girlie girl shark? Or is the new layout just Erin being Erin? I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments and please do not hesitate to let me know if you find that something seems to be amiss or working improperly.
