Welcome to the new Made With Pink!
I’ve made it no secret that for the past couple of years I’ve wanted to overhaul my site by moving it to WordPress and giving it a bit of a facelift. I’d fallen out of love with my old blogger site, so much so that I couldn’t bear to publish another post on it. Mainly because whatever I published on the old blog, meant also needing to transfer it over to the new blog. A prospect that terrified me. Throughout the past year or so I’ve dabbled in designing a new layout myself, and trying to understand the complex process of unlocking domains, transferring content, fixing links, and transferring name servers. I wasn’t getting anywhere fast. In the end, it was a thoughtful Christmas present from my husband that finally led me to hire Erika S over at Designer Blogs. We worked together to identify the style I wanted my new site to be, and she put together an awesome mood board which was exactly what I wanted. Once we’d agreed on the mood board Erika got to work creating my site, and took care of all the content transfer stuff that plagued me for years.
Overall I’m super happy with my new design. It’s so much lighter, brighter and whiter! I wanted to keep it super simple, with lots of white, and just a touch of pale pink and grey. Now my pictures are much larger, and really stand out on the clean white background, rather than getting lost in a sea of dark grey like they were on my blogger site.
There’s still a few niggles I have to work out, so please bear with me if something isn’t completely perfect just quite yet.
And while I did take a bit of a hiatus from blogging, I continued to bake loads of delicious treats and photograph them along the way so that I could share them with you.
Keep an eye out later in the week for a brand new post.
