Facelift

As you can probably tell, I used last night’s rain as a good excuse to finally redo my blog. Aside from the cosmetic changes with color and picture, I now have my own domain name: the900facebookpony.com. You can access my blog either through that link or from the previous the900facebookpony.wordpress.com link. Both should work, although you might have to change the link if my blog is on your blog roll… not sure.

You should also no longer be seeing any WordPress generated ads on this site. I want 100% control of what businesses and products I endorse here, so they had to go. If you see one (especially if you’re on mobile, since that’s where they seemed to show up the most) let me know and I will yell obscenities at the appropriate person at WordPress.

There are a couple new things in the menu bar as well, and some updates to both my and Henry’s About Us posts. Most notably, I added a Contact page so you can email me directly if you want.

Sadly when I switched over to a new template all of my sidebar widgets re-set (thanks WordPress) so I had to start from scratch. I think I restored everything back to working order, but if you see anything broken or out of place or missing, please let me know. Also, if you don’t see something that you want to see, let me know so I can consider adding it.

Hope you like the new look and link. And if not, well.. too bad, because it took HOURS and I’m not re-doing it anytime soon. Instead enjoy this unicorn gif and lie to me and tell me you love it.

  2. I love it! Looks so good!

    If you get bored without any shows coming up, it would be awesome if the Reviews page had a list of all of them. Your reviews are the greatest and it would be nice to see all of them rather than the most recent ones or to search through them :).

    1. I tried to figure out how to do a list or something on that page but couldn’t. That page is just pulling everything that is categorized as a “review” and putting them together. Anyone have any idea how to add a list? I ran out of cares after a couple hours of this. 😉

      1. Here is what I did: if you look at my blog you can click the button (say Estella) and if you click it, it takes you to a specific page. But if you hover, there are more options that drop down. I think you would have to do two separate pages, like one would be the way you have it and another you would have to manually insert them as a list (or something similar to my favorite posts page). That is the only way I know how to do it at least lol!

        1. Hmmm, yeah I dunno how to build that separate page. My options are a bit limited without the super premium version. I’ll try to play with it more when I have time and see if I can figure it out.

  3. I love the new look. I will admit though that this particular format makes it “hard” for me to comment because the comment link is at the top of the post instead of the bottom (when reading on the home page) but I will suck it up and deal with it. 🙂

    1. Yeah, that’s the one thing I don’t like as much either. :/ I can’t change it though without either upgrading to premium or picking a different template. I’ll keep looking at more options.

  4. love the clean and streamlined look – and the header picture is perfect. so far with the domain change everything still shows up through the same blog rolls and feed readers too. somehow there’s something so satisfying in cleaning up a page and getting all the design details just right!
