Welcome to the new Practically Functional!!!
Looks super different, right?! Well don’t freak out too much; it’s the same Practically Functional content you know and love, it’s just had a bit of a face-lift!
Let me walk you through a few of the changes… First and most obvious, the new design!
Gwen from This Bold Girl built this fancy new design for me, and did a wonderful job on it! The biggest change is the color scheme; the pink and grey was fun, but this seems a lot brighter, simpler, easier to read, and much more “me”!
The next big change was switching from .net to .com! If you look up in your address bar you’ll see that you’re now at practicallyfunctional.com instead of practicallyfunctional.net. But don’t worry, all of your old links will still work! Anything you pinned to Pinterest or shared to Facebook or Twitter will still direct you back here to the right place.
And if for some reason you do get a little lost on the new site, I’ve reorganized it in a way I hope will make it much easier to find what you’re looking for! There is a search bar right here in the sidebar, so if you’re looking for something specific just type it in there and hit Enter!
If you are just browsing around, you can look through all of the menus up at the top. Posts about decorating, organizing, cleaning, and gardening are in the Home & Garden menu. I’ve put all of my tutorials together in one place, broken down by the specific type of tutorial you are looking for. Everything else (Health & Beauty, Photography, Blogging, Pets, etc., pretty much everything else I write about besides recipes) is in the Lifestyle menu, and you can find every recipe I’ve ever posted in the Food & Drink menu! And any seasonal or holiday decor, crafts, or recipes I have can be found in the Seasonal & Holiday menu.
Just hover your mouse over any of the menus to see the sub-menus drop down, and feel free to browse around!
Another thing that has changed is the posts that are sent out by email! By the way, if you aren’t signed up to receive the newest posts from Practically Functional in your inbox, what are you waiting for?! You can do it right here, just click this link and fill out your email address in the new window that pops up! Or if you want to do it later, just look for the big Subscribe By Email box in the sidebar near the top.
For those of you who get my newest posts delivered to you by email, you’ll still get them in your inbox exactly like you used to, they will just look a little prettier than before! So don’t freak out when you see emails from me that look totally different! They still have the latest posts in them just like before, they’re just prettier now.
And that brings me to the last change. It’s not a huge one, but anyone who emails me will notice that my email is a bit different. You can now get in touch with me by emailing jessi AT practicallyfunctional.com, and if you ever get an email from me it will come from that address. So make sure my emails aren’t showing up in your spam folder, especially if you’re signed up to receive new posts via email!
But, for all of those changes, there are a few very important things that are NOT changing! I will still be sharing simple, practical projects and ideas that are designed to help you love your home, no matter where you live! I will still post detailed tutorials for any projects that I do, and I will still share crafts, recipes, and other fun things mixed in there with the larger projects. I will still be posting new stuff a few times a week, every week, and I will still be hosting the Fun In Functional link parties on Fridays!
So I hope you enjoy the changes we’ve made, and thank you so much for following along and reading my blog!!!
I link up at these awesome parties!
