Huzzah! :D Welcome to the “transition” theme for Melly.me! I have dubbed it “transition” because I have now officially transferred from my old domain of melly.me. That and this theme looks quite similar to my previous design: same colors, general layout, etc. Please note that this was done on purpose because I wanted to get this going as soon as I could!
The “official” theme that I have planned for this site is in the works and will take several more months to complete. I wanted something nice up for now, so I just built off of the old design. :) I switched around and edited a LOT of content too, so feel free to browse around and see what is different or new. :D
You’ll notice that some pages are “flagged for a clean up” because I haven’t activated their fun features yet. Also some posts need to be re-categorized. I’m going to get to all that in the next couple weeks. :D
That being said, I’m not going to apologize for how long it took, hehe. ;) I fully intended to take ages because from past experience I discovered that rushing myself only caused me more annoyances afterward. Since I took my time in designing and coded everything quite slowly… I believe my work has paid off. :D
It would be awesome if everyone who links me could update the URL to my new domain! For those of you who’s blogs I comment on often, you could even go as far as to change all the references to my old domain in your database! You love me right? :D If you are savvy with MySQL then just do a simple search/replace query.
If you aren’t, and you happen to use WordPress, I’ve found this nifty Search & Replace plugin that will do it all for you. I’ve tested it myself and it works perfectly. Just input to replace all instances of “melly.me” with “melly.me” and voila! :D Link love!
Let me know what you all think! If you have any suggestions about any element of my site, whether it’s design or content related, I am always happy to hear it out. While I do all this because I love to create great web stuff, I also do it for you, because visitors are what keep the site alive. So I highly value your opinion.
I hope you enjoy the new look! I’ve certainly had a blast creating it. :D
