There are some awesome new features that are worth pointing out:
- Responsive design. The site will now react to your specific browser size, and this includes a brand new mobile version!
- Sticky navigation. The navigation bars are sticky and will remain at the top of your page as you scroll down. This should make it much easier for you to move around the site.
- Browse. Clicking the Browse link in the navigation bar will pop out a side panel that will give you a TON of ways to explore!
- News. Some of you are already familiar with my companion blog at news.chalkboardnails.com, and now it's fed into a side panel, too! Click News in the navigation bar and give it a try.
- Random. I've always wanted a randomize feature, and Ling has made my dreams come true. Click Random in the navigation bar to be hurled through time.
- ...and MORE! There are lots of other great additions that are worth exploring, so I highly encourage you to poke around the site!
A quick note about post jumps: to reduce load times and give you a great "at a glance" view, the main page will now show one photo from each post. The rest of the images and post content will be placed under a cut that you can access by clicking "Continue Reading." This will not affect you if you arrive at the site via links from Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, and will not change the way that posts look via readers like Bloglovin or Feedly.
One last request from me! Please excuse any small hiccups (like posts appearing in your feed that you've seen before) while I try to transition some details from the old blog to the new one.
