You may have noticed some changes around here at Big Box Detox. Over the past few weeks Kristen and I have been re-evaluating BBD’s focus and mission and in doing so, we felt the blog needed a bit of an update. We had two main goals with the site redesign. First, we wanted to make navigating around the site a little easier. Second, we wanted the site to have a slightly more sophisticated look.
One of the main differences you’ll notice is the main blog post categories just below the BBD header. We usually try to make one blog post per category per week, in order from Monday to Friday. So you should see a new ‘house’ post on Monday, a DIY or tutorial post on Tuesday, and so on. You can simply click those buttons to see all posts contained within each category (except for the home page and the about page, of course). We were hoping this would make our main posting categories more prominent.
Next, you’ll notice a badge for the Big Box Detox Shop Guide at the top of the right column. Basically, this is going to be a directory for online shops that fit within the Big Box Detox philosophy. You’ll notice that there’s nothing there at the moment, but it will be up very soon. We’ll do a post on this as soon as it’s ready to go.
You’ll also notice some new links/badges below the shop guide badge. Use those to contact us by email, get our posts via RSS, follow us on Twitter, or check out our Pintrest boards (if you haven’t checked out Pintrest, we’ll probably be posting about that in the near future, but I would encourage you to check it out).
You can also sign up to receive new BBD posts directly to your email with the email subscription box, ensuring that you’ll never miss a post. If you subscribe to posts by email, you’ll only get the latest and greatest BBD posts in your email. No spam, we promise.
We’re pretty sure there will be a few small bugs here and there with the new design. You’ll probably notice some minor changes over the next week or so as we tweak the final design and fix any issues that pop up.
If you notice any problems or if you have any feedback on the new design, please let us know by email or in the comments.
Thanks for your continued support!
