Over a year and a half ago I switched from Blogger to WordPress, two-column template to magazine layout.
Moving to WordPress was the best decision I ever made for my blog (note to Blogger bloggers: my traffic doubled shortly after I switched to WordPress).
My initial drive to move to the magazine layout was that I was ambitiously planning on posting multiple times in a day. I wanted my blog to become an online zine of sorts, where one could find plenty of posts on Austin lifestyle, fashion, pop culture, etc.
Yeahhhh….that didn’t happen.
Blogging every day is hard. Blogging multiple times a day is really hard.
The zine idea I had was more appropriate for a team of writers and not one pseudo-writer who spends her days holed up on the couch in her sweatpants. I guess if I wanted to take Hipstercrite to that level, I could have, but I kind of just like blogging whatever the hell I want to whenever the hell I want to (i.e. don’t fix something if it ain’t broken).
So….with that being said, I’ve decided that it’s best that I go back to a two or three-column blog layout.
Before I do so, I would love your feedback!
Do you prefer the magazine layout or shall I return to the more traditional personal blog layout of two to three columns?
As for the the new template, I was thinking something along the lines of this? I prefer minimalistic, yet with customized branding to show uniqueness.
What do you think?
You guys have been so supportive through the years and I value your opinion and always appreciate your feedback!
OR do you have a different layout idea that you think would work even better?
On a side note, as I’ve been rummaging the Internet for layout designs, I came across this awesome German design company, Elma Studio, that creates killer WordPress templates. Check out this beautiful template.
