Blog Update: New Comment System + Layout

I’m feeling pretty refreshed from this weekend. It was nice and relaxing and filled with shopping! A win-win all around! :)

This weekend wasn’t all fun and games though. I got to business and  made some changes to the blog, like:

  • Changed out the comment system. I HATED not having threaded comments, so I installed Disqus. You can log in using different profiles, like Facebook, Twitter or Google. Or, you can just leave your name, email and site link like you could before- just make sure to click the “Optional: Link to your website” link!
  • Included three posts on the homepage instead of two. Some of my posts can be a bit short, so I figured it would be easier to scroll through a few more posts before deciding whether to read more…which I hope you guys decide to do! :)
  • Created a new “Read More Posts” button at the bottom of the blog. My awesome hubs created this button to show readers in a clearer way that they can read more by clicking the button. Before I had “Newer” and “Older” links, and I thought this could get a little confusing.
  • Updated my Blogroll page. In the past couple months, I’ve connected with some truly amazing bloggers. I’m so happy to update my Blogroll page and give a shoutout where shoutouts are due!

Blog stuff can be really tricky sometimes. I’m really lucky to have an awesome husband who works as a professional web developer. If you have a self-hosted blog and want to make changes to your layout or design, he’s the man to talk to!
