Hello and welcome to a brand new SimplyAbbi!
As you can tell, everything looks a little bit different around here and I really, really hope you like it! A new design has been brewing for a little while as SimplyAbbi has progressed over the last year or so, I felt things needed changing. I’ve decided to simplify everything to make your experience here easy and simple. After all, you’re here for the content and that’s what I want to focus on. So, I’ve lost the sidebar and just kept the main content and images the number one focus. I’ve removed all the unnecessary widgets and clutter. I’ve gone for a simple, monochrome colour theme to let the pictures do all the talking. Everything’s been stripped back. And I love it.
I’ve also taken the plunge and moved over to WordPress. Blogger was a wonderful tool and perfect starting point but as my love for blogging, writing and this whole adventure and community has grown, I started to notice different little limitations with Blogger that I knew I could do with WordPress. It’s all very exciting to browse through all the plugins (there is literally millions!) there to help build and create your website and just give you a helping hand. I’m so very happy over here already, WordPress and all it’s fancy functions are right up my street!
I couldn’t of done any of this without the lovely Kotryna. This talented lady took full control of the migration over to WordPress and it’s her beautiful design which now features here! She answered all of my million questions that I had throughout this whole process, helped me out massively, took all of my requests under her wing and was just an absolute pleasure to work with. She’s insanely talented, incredibly professional, quick and just all round brilliant. If you’re in need of a re-vamp, I actively encourage you to check out her shop, her designs are all so wonderful and I can promise that you won’t regret it!
Most of all, I hope you, the readers, like the change! I hope that everything is so much more simple but still accessible for you. Please, take a look round, all the pages have been updated, I’ve added a much needed disclaimer and nearly every post has been reformatted to fit in with the new design and look. I’m so happy with how everything looks, I really, really hope you like it too!
