If you are a constant reader of this little weblog you may have noticed, that we not only try to provide delicious recipes and stories, but are dead keen to go about it in a visually pleasing way. However, like in real life there comes the day when your favorite boots just don’t fit you anymore – hopefully at least the female readers out there can relate to this analogy. Well, of course they still fit your feet, but your taste has moved on and you feel it’s time for a change. There you go, a new pair.
The seed was planted somewhere back in November and over the course of two months I devised several new outfits for delicious:days. Neither of the new designs made me happy, dissatisfied and frustrated I dropped the whole idea. Until one Saturday morning in early January, out of the blue, new ideas popped up and within a few hours the complete new layout was born. Well, drawn in Photoshop, not programmed I might add. Followed by a few sleepless nights of double-checking blog functionalities, upgrading WP to Ella (why not while we’re at it) and carving out a few new concepts which you may discover over the next weeks.
One new feature I would like to highlight right away: The far right section in our new header has a randomize-functionality, so chances are you’ll see something different each time you visit the blog. Among other content, this will also be home for one of our new features, “Link Love“. Simply to share with you some great new finds on the net, not exclusively but mainly food blogs.
We hope you enjoy the new look just as much as we do. Technically, the new site should run flawless (I know I’ll hate me for writing this right after I hit publish) on all major systems & browsers. Fingers crossed. If you do encounter problems with an older browser, this is a perfect time to treat yourself and get a
good new one.
Hopefully this explains our recent lack of responsiveness and slight signs of content drought, let alone shortage on time for actually cooking – apologies for that. We are back in full swing now…
