Have you been to MangiaPaleo.com recently? You may have noticed it looks totally different. I really hope you like the facelift. It was time for a refresher because Mangia Paleo will be 2 years old in January! WOOO!!!! All thanks to you. Without you I wouldn’t have a reason to be continuing this passion. I wouldn’t have a reason to share recipes and help IBD patients. Sometimes I go to bed after a really bad day and wake up to one of the most motivating emails thanking me for my advocacy and candor or asking for help. It means so much. Thank you for your endless support and committed following. You da best.
For the past week+ I’ve dedicated countless hours, and numerous bottles of wine, to changing domain hosts and redesigning my blog. I have essentially made this switch by myself without having a clue what to do. I am a college admission counselor, not a computer programmer. Ya feel me? Some of you are probably like, “Yeah, So? Everybody knows HTML & CSS codes, WordPress plugin navigation, and domain/hosting transfer”. But not me. This was hard. The changes to you on the outside are relatively simple. But in order to do that there were big changes on the back end. And I’m not talking about that back end.
Aside from not knowing much about websites and design there was another limitation. The budget for this switch was a big fat ZIP. So, how did I do that on an admission counselor salary living in one of the most expensive states in the nation?
- 1. Your donations. Remember that ‘donate’ button on my old page? Some of you clicked it and donated and I will forever love you.
- 2. I sold my stuff. A little tip for you – never throw out gifts from past relationships. It might help you pay for a new web host. Thanks, boys.
Here is what changed
What else? What would you like to see? What can change? What should not change?
Congratulations on reading this entire post (you did, right?) without a single photo. This may have been my first post of all words. Imagine that. <3
