a new Joli House | blog re-design

Many months of dithering later, Joli House has finally had a facelift!  Yesterday I decided to properly finish the task I’d been dipping in and out of for ages (since like, last August, what is wrong with me???) and just stay up however late was necessary to get the job done.  To any non-bloggers out there – changing theme is 10x more hassle than it looks, I promise you!


Obviously my new layout isn’t anything groundbreaking, but it’s clearer, cleaner and hopefully everything’s a little more accessible.  Oh and I’ve a new ‘work with me‘ page too, swanky. ;D  Hopefully old content won’t get quite as buried now the categories are more prominent too – that bugged me!  I don’t stick to a niche so I wanted to make sure each topic was easily found.  Make life easier for the people who don’t really care about what I got up to last Tuesday, y’know?  In a twitter poll a while ago most people voted that they prefer ‘traditional blog’ style layouts so I haven’t deviated too far from that, but something about the scrolling image,overview of several posts and Insta feed in the footer is very satisfying lol.  I’m easily impressed.  Feels nice and fresh now though.  Definitely worth staying up ’til 3am trawling through HTML. 🙂


If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let me know!

    It looks great! Well done on getting it all set up, I really like how you’ve mixed both the traditional style and the magazine style. 🙂

      Thank you Kemi! I debated whether it was a bit of a bandwagon to jump on at first but it’s just so much clearer and easier now so I did it anyway!
