Good morning, friends – happy Monday!
Do you notice anything different around these parts this morning!? Nutrition Nut got a makeover! What do y’all think?
I thought I would have the new look completed to share with you all last week, but I got ahead myself. I should have known how picky I am; hence the reason why the design process took a bit longer than I expected – but well worth it, in my opinion.
The blog has undergone a handful of looks in its five plus years. I can’t recall when it had its last facelift, meaning it was well overdo for a cleansing facial, if you will. I pampered both the back and front of the blog.
Back of the House
I started with the “back of the blog” – all that techy stuff you fortunately can’t see nor have to deal with. After a few decent years using Bluehost to host my website, I took the plunge and migrated my site to a new home at AcceleratedWP (affiliate link). While it comes with a price, the support I have received from AWP in the past couple of months is top notch; I am confident the five plus years of Nutrition Nut content is in safe hands.
Front of the House
Next up, the fun part: the front of the house!
Way back when – within my first year of blogging – I purchased the Thesis Theme, which has since been the core design framework of Nutrition Nut. In 2009/2010, Thesis Theme seemed to be the ultimate blogging platform. As with anything, newer and better was hitting the marketplace not before long – sleeker designs with higher functioning themes – and it has taken me a post or two (hundred) to catch up.
Her Fresh Look
I hired Julie at Deluxe Designs to help me with the job. Julie doesn’t work with Thesis, so I was required, at my free will, to migrate to the Genesis Framework (I chose the Foodie “child theme”) in order to utilize her skillful design work. Luckily for me, Julie migrated Nutrition Nut from one theme to other seamlessly; I didn’t have to worry about a thing.
My vision for Nutrition Nut’s new look was “simple, sophisticated, and classy… yet inviting.” I kept my core colors (tangerine + coral with a pop of teal) that have been with me since the early days, while simplifying – less is more! If you don’t know by now, I am a minimalist by nature.
Julie and I played back and forth with a new header design, but I ultimately decided to update what has been the icon of Nutrition Nut for the past few years. According to Julie, the original fonts were “so 2011”!
I am very excited about Nutrition Nut’s matured look and functionality. If you are in the market for design work, I highly recommend Julie (boy, is she patient!).
New Health Coaching Website
Aside from the beautiful job that Julie did, I am probably most excited to share my new hub for my Health Coaching services.
