I’ve just spent two glorious weeks in beautiful Sun Valley, as long time readers know, a place very near and dear to my heart. The weather was spectacular, which gave us ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and luxuriate in slow-paced days that remained light until 10pm.
I won’t go into details just yet, but I will humble brag that my vacay wasn’t entirely reading, hiking, mindful diet & exercise (and beating my spouse at ping pong) Goodness no. No, no, nooo. Some of it was spent devotedly working on my blog renovations. As you can see!
A quick review of the features and improvements on the New and Improved Slim Paley;
-You’ll still find all the same “S.P.” content, but posts will be easier to navigate and archives handier to access.
You’ll also get:
-A new scrolling bar featuring the four most recent posts.
-Beneath, 3 windows with the next most recent posts.
But it doesn’t stop there!
-I finally have a “Back to Top” button. Yay!
-and a “Pin it” option when hovering over images.
-and if you care to connect with me on social media; Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr-they’re all there too. I am out on the dance floor, people. I even joined ‘WeChat’-though that’s not linked. Forgotten my password already and only have two friends-randomly, my oldest girlfriend in the world (since age 11) Talk about ‘meant to be’ friends! and the other is my neighbour. I guess I’m not that big in Mainland China. Yet 🙂
-You’ll also receive a “TRAVELS” window! Continually updating with adventure ideas, cool hotels & great restaurants, shopping tips, lots of off-the-beaten-track suggestions… all in one place now.
But wait-Is there more Slim?? Why yes! I’m so glad you asked!
-The “Daily Paley” window, where I’ll share book recommendations, design tips, funny or inspiring quotes, a new film, gorgeous flowers, beautiful homes, products I like, drinks I love, a recipe I’ll never attempt but want you to…anything and everything I deem share-worthy. Updated daily, it’ll be fun!
-Lastly, “INSTA-SLIM” a direct feed to my Instagram page…mostly because I couldn’t decide what else to put there-so this could be a ‘fluid situation’ as they say.
I’m really excited about my new look and I hope you will be too. Sharing my enthusiasm for beautiful things, exciting places and interesting people was always my original intent for ‘Slim Paley’. I’ve tried to stay true to my vision, keeping the tone light, entertaining and visually pleasing, but let’s be real, this revamp has been a long time coming. Real life gets in the way, and no one’s ever accused moi of rushing into anything 😉
Of course there’s still a ‘Sign Up for Email Alerts’ box. DO consider subscribing! ( 1 lucky subscriber could win the “Brazil Butt Lift” DVD I ordered when I was on shoulder surgery meds. unopened!) )You will only receive notifications for new posts. No emails will be sent for the “Daily Paley”.
I think everything else is pretty self-explanatory or intuitive, but feel free to leave questions or comments. I’m happy to answer as much as I can. Please practice kindness. These are early days and I’m sure there will be a few bumps in the road before I remove my training wheels.
In the meantime, enjoy poking around, and once again, Happy July to everyone!
