I'm getting really close to launching cathyzielske.com.
I'm nervous. I'm excited. I'm ready. I'll post an orientation to the new site once it's live.
I wanted to let you know that when the changeover happens, there may be a few bumps along the way in the following areas:
• broken links (I'll fix them).
• new categories (I'll retag every single one of my over 1,100 posts written since 2007).
• images that don't look quite right (I'll work on those, too).
Some great news about the site: it's a responsive site. This means it'll look great on your smart phone or your tablet. No more squinting at your iPhone people.
The other great news is that other than having a completely new look, feel and structure, this blog will still be Ground Zero for every story I have to share with you. The only difference will be bigger photos and bigger, easier-to-read text.
In fact, the font size is bigger throughout the site. My middle aged eyes are kind of digging it, even if my designer heart misses those smaller text sizes.
My site will be a WordPress site. I have a whole new platform to learn, but I hear it's pretty do-able.
You will be able to subscribe via your favorite reader as well.
Change is always a little scary. Personally, I like familiar and sometimes it's hard for me to push myself to move away from that which I know. I hope this change is a good one for you, my readers. Give it a few weeks. Let it warm up to you. I think you'll like it.
