Welcome to the New ModernDomestic

by moderndomestic on March 30, 2010

Hey everyone – after months and months of planning, scheming, and consulting various friends for advice, ModernDomestic has finally switched over to a new design! I thought about this way back in, like, September, but it really took this long to make it happen. I hope you like the new look and logo. Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or ideas for the new blog – I have a lot more flexibility now that this baby is self-hosted.

A couple of shout outs to the people who helped me along the way:

  • My friend Sean, who is my resident go-to tech guy and understands all sorts of things about servers and hosting that I don’t;
  • My fabulously talened friend Abigail,  who designed the new logo; and
  • Olga of Mango and Tomato, who dragged herself out in the freezing DC spring to take photos for my About Me page.

And, of course, thanks to all my friends (you know who you are), who gave me great advice, feedback, and encouragement throughout this process. It may seem like a small thing, but this was actually a huge project, and I couldn’t have done it without everyone’s help. It really does take a village to build a blog.

Good luck! Now that it’s over I think it’s totally worth it – but it was a long road.
