New & Improved

Welcome to the new and improved Desert Domicile!



If you're viewing my blog in a browser, ignore the above image since you can obviously see what the blog looks like right now haha

If you're viewing my blog in a reader, try visiting it in a browser (www.desertdomicile.com) to see the new look!



The blog's makeover has been in the works for a few months now. I played around with some design concepts before landing on this one. I spent a couple of weeks tweaking things and then I spent a few nights burning the midnight oil designing and coding the entire thing myself.

You may have noticed that I removed some things while adding in others. For example, you can now pin images from my blog simply by hovering over them. Try it on the photo below!

(If you're viewing my blog in a reader, you might not be able to do this.)



I attempted to have this feature in my old blog's design but it never worked for me. Some people said it worked for them though so if you're one of them it worked for, pay no attention to this! ;)

I've also made our house tour easier to find and I've added a popular posts section – all of which happen to be DIY projects!



I've also made it possible for me to reply to your comments individually underneath the original comment instead of having to post a separate comment a few comments below yours (if you ever noticed that). It's silly to get excited about this but I hated not being able to do it in my old design!

There's some other fun things in addition to the above ones but I'll let you discover them on your own :)

I launched the new look over the weekend and am still fixing some glitches so if anything looks weird to you, please let me know. In the mean time, take a look around and let me know what you think of the new look!
