a new ‘fabulous’ look for the new year

If you’re reading this on the Fast and the Fabulous website then you can see that I’ve made some changes (If you’re not then you should come on over and take a look).

I think this look is a better reflection of who I am and what the blog is all about. Plus, I was just really tired of all of the orange. I’m so over that color. :) I’m excited about the awesome featured post slideshow on the homepage. It makes me so happy, I can’t even tell you. I love the big photos I get to use there and underneath in the “Latest Posts” section.

In addition to the cosmetic changes, there are a couple technical alterations, too. The first, that affects you directly, is the ability to reply to comments. So if you agree or disagree with something someone else said you can reply to them directly by clicking the word “Reply” under their name. Your comment will be nested under the original comment, keeping the conversation neatly organized.

And if you want to have your own special avatar/profile image to show up with your comments just go over to Gravatar and create one! It’s super easy and free, just make sure you sign up with the same email address that you use when posting comments.

At the top of every post are a group of buttons that allow you to share the stuff you like via Facebook, Twitter, Del.icio.us, or StumbleUpon.

I hope you enjoy the new and improved Fast and the Fabulous! :)

    Love the new look, and the threaded comments make it so much easier for conversation.
