It was time to change it up a bit, not only because I get tired of the same old thing after a while, but because I needed a template that would help me make one of my blog dreams come true: To bring you engaging content from a stable of compelling authors, all under one roof.
Yes, you read that right. And I will let you know who your new G&G bloggers are very, very soon. In the meantime, I wanted to point out that aside from the new look, there is also a new feature I hope you will explore:
[button url=’http://www.gritandglamour.com/forums/’ target=’_blank’ icon=’iconic-comment-alt2′]The Forum[/button]
Many readers have found their way to G&G through the two most popular posts on the site: Why I’m Not on Weardrobe, Chictopia, Lookbook, or Hypeed, and Getting Over Homesickness. That last one, in particular, is what helped me decide that a forum is exactly what readers struggling with homesickness could use.
The Forum is a place for G&G readers to discuss topics more deeply, with contributors or fellow readers. While comments on posts are always appreciated, occasionally, you may want to ask a question that others may also have wanted to ask. Now, you have a place to do it (and there will always be a link in the main site navigation). Pick our brains, chat with your fellow bloggers and readers, or just peruse at your leisure. It’s all up to you.
Also, I know that as a blog reader, you may like a post, but don’t necessarily have time to comment on it. If that’s the case, please let us know what content you like by clicking the heart icon at the top of the post. Knowing what you like will help us with our creative direction.
Welcome to the new G&G. I hope you are as excited about it as I am!
