It’s a New Look, and a New Purpose
Well, if you are new here you might have no idea what the big deal is, but if you have EVER visited the Cafe before, you will understand what a huge change the site has undergone. Huge!
What started as a major problem has turned into a blessing, though. When I updated my theme late last week I either had a corrupted file or something else very strange happened, and my site went down. I attempted to go in under the FTP to see if I could just roll back my changes, only to find that my last configuration was corrupted somehow.
From the Chaos, a Chance to Re-invent Kat’s Cafe
A good friend stepped forward who happened to own a developer’s license for the Headway Theme, which I have been drooling over for a while now, and offered me a chance to use the theme. I jumped on that!
I used the opportunity to redesign the Cafe Header and loved the colors so much that I reconfigured my site colors to match it.
I’ve also been pondering another major site change for a while now, to go along with my passions in life, which revolve around far more than being a special needs parent (imagine that!).
Welcome new passions – Writing & Design
In case you didn’t know this about me, I work as a virtual assistant online, doing everything from copy writing and editing to basic site and graphic design. I love writing, or playing with my words, which you would know if you had a chance to read my In the Silence piece on Logan, his seizures, and a little bit of thread.
So, rather than just talking about being the parent of some pretty amazing kids, I’d love to share some of my other passions with you as well. Sharing my passions in life … that’s what it is all about for me!
- So how about you? Are you a special needs blogger who writes about so much more than those pesky diagnoses?
- A writer or designer (and probably infinitely better than little ‘ol me!) who likes to write about a variety of things on your blog?
- Have you ever used a major site #fail as a chance to start over, or at least reinvent, your blog? [/three_fourths]
