Hello ladies! My blog (Cyndi Spivey) is finally up and running. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience of switching over to my new design, but it takes a little bit of time when you’ve been blogging for nine years, and I have lots of content.
I’m so excited to share my new design with you and share about some of the features. Let me begin by saying we have some tweaks to make so if something isn’t working yet, be patient, we will get it fixed.
I also want to add a little more color so that will happen over the next few days and the font is too light for me so, we will darken it.
Why did you rebrand to Cyndi Spivey?
First things first, nothing is going to change about what I share. I will still talk about my faith (grace) and fashion, makeup, fitness, etc. (beauty).
I switched to my name for several reasons, but the main one is because there was a site with the Grace and Beauty URL that is a porn site. It’s under construction right now, but when it comes back, I’m assuming it will still have that content.
Many women have said they googled Grace and Beauty and found that site, not my blog. Ugh! My URL has always been cyndispivey.com, so it made sense to rename my blog to Cyndi Spivey. Also, if I ever have the opportunity to have a clothing line I want to use my name.
Okay, about the new design…many of you asked if I would change the comment section so that you didn’t have to scroll through all the comments to write your comment. That box is at the top, and I hope it works better for you.
When you come to my blog, you will see my latest posts at the very top. There are three small dots (see the arrow below), and you can click on each one to see my three latest posts.
You might see this in my sidebar, but it’s going to change to Currently Loving. I will keep this box updated with items I’m wearing or using that week.
Another cool feature is the boxes beside my picture. If you click the top one the items I’m featuring in that post will pop out (see picture below).
These are the items in that post.
If you click the second box you can pin the picture, email someone the post, share it on facebook or twitter.
Here is what it looks like when you click it. I always appreciate any shares on my posts!
We will be working on getting everything fixed today, and I’m so glad it’s going to be ready for tomorrow since Jo-Lynne, and I begin our 21 Days of Summer Fashion. Can’t wait!
I think that’s about it, let me know if you have any questions and what you think about the new design. I want it to work for you, and I’m hoping it’s easy to navigate.
Beauty For the Heart~~Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19
When I was thinking about my “new” design for some reason, this verse came to my mind. It has nothing to do with blogging, but it’s a good reminder that God is always ready to do something new in our lives.
If you are in a difficult season (and believe me, I’ve been there), God is promising to get you through it. He’s making a way. He is giving you everything you need if you are in the desert.
I’m so thankful I serve a God that doesn’t let me stay in that pit. He is faithful friends!!
Have a blessed day!
