Hope you are having a wonderful start to the weekend! We’ve got some family fun and a hospital tour this weekend! It’s Easter!
The top fives for this week…
Here’s a place we like to go for happy hour every once in a while. It’s called Brick and Mortar and it’s in the slightly less touristy part of Santa Monica on Main Street. This particular restaurant is off the main street, kind of hidden.
Yep, parmesan fries and a beet salad plus pizza. An acupuncturist’s dinner. Totally. You’ve GOT to live a little.
The other 4 of the week were the responses to the survey!!
Thank you again for taking the time!
1. Here is how responders rated their post interest from MOST Favorite to Least Interested:
I would love to do more personal/lifestyle posts. These posts are easy and fun. I’m trying to improve my photography and I’m getting more comfortable with being more open. Thanks!
The rest of the category interest levels will help me to look at the percentages of posts I do in those categories.
2. Layout Design:
a. A few people suggested that it would be easier if I did a full post layout on the main page so you don’t have to click on the post of the day to read it. I really like this idea and I’m going to work on it. I do my own programming/layout nowadays so this may take a bit. 🙂
b. Some people find the mobile site difficult to navigate. It is set to be a site where you have to minimize/maximize on a mobile device. You have to do that pinch thing with your fingers to navigate the site.
The benefit of this is that the layout on a computer will show up EXACTLY the same on any mobile device (with minimizing or maximizing). The drawback is the extra step needed to make it readable on a smaller device. Sometimes mobile site programming looks different than the site on a computer. The benefit here is that it’s made to have posts easily read on a mobile device even if it looks a little different.
Again, now that I’m on my own for programming, I’m going to look into easier ways to make this mobile and I may have to hire some help. Great feedback! I want to make it easy.
3. More sharable posts:
OK, I am so glad you let me know that it wasn’t clear that the images were even pinnable. I added the white overlay and a new Pin It button for images. I hope you like it and encourage you to pin!
I am working on making more pinnable content layouts for the future: recipes, acupuncture, health etc.
4. LOVED seeing your favorite blogs and I’m checking them all out.
Although I addressed the most commented features on the survey here, I absolutely read all the feedback, took it to heart and I am going to continue to tidy up the site.
Have a lovely weekend!!! Thank you for stopping by! Linking up with The lovely Lauren Elizabeth!
