So. Tait and I spent the holidays quietly at home and actually managed to take a full week off (gasp). Sort of. It wasn’t what I would call relaxing…the fridge broke down, the nanny got locked out with the baby inside so had to break a window then bust down a door to get back in, we had a few brainstorming sessions that ended up stressing both of us out, we discovered a few bugs on the blog that needed tweaking, you get what I’m saying. BUT. We did manage to watch some great movies (the hangover…super funny, 500 days of summer…super cute, 8 episodes of Glee…LOVE), explore a few neighborhood restaurants, spend some QT in a bookstore, things like that. So all in all, it was a lovely little break. Minus the busted door.
The break was intended to clear our heads and give us some focus with the blog. Which it very much did. We came up with 10 immediate goals for Style Me Pretty, all of which we are getting started on today. Here are our top three:
1. Improve Navigation and overall Site Cohesion.
2. Complete our submissions tool that is going to make it insanely easy to submit weddings and content to us.
3. Incorporate new writers into the site in a really seamless and fun way.
We will also be changing over the secondary page thumbnails into full posts to improve user experience and we will be rolling out brand new vendor listing pages that kind of kick some serious booty. Click here for a sneak peek of the new pages.
Now here’s my question to you guys! What would you like to see here on BACKSTAGE?? More blogging tips, resources and ideas, business tips, marketing tips, behind the scenes at SMP, personal and family stuff? You name it, we’ll tackle it.
Lots of love and luck to all in the new year!
