A Fresh Look for my Recipe Page!

2013-07-28_171655

As some of you may (or may not have noticed), I haven’t been posting on The Nutritional Epiphany very much lately.  As hard as it’s been to be away, it has certainly been for a very good reason. I decided to make the move to be self-hosted and all of the content and domain is finally transferred over.  It has been pretty darn stressful as links were broken, a bit of content was lost and I have to start over in a variety of ways.  This is going to be best for the long-term growth of the site though, so it’s time to get back to work!

My first task (aside from just getting the website to work properly) was to give my “Recipe” page a fresh new look so here it is!  Minor upgrade, but I think it makes a big difference.  You’ll notice now that each recipe is associated with a picture that best represents the end product;  this will help you decide whether you’re interested in it or not before you click!  This is just one of many updates that are coming in the near future.  Until the next one, I hope you enjoy this new page!

  1. Looks fab:)

  2. I like it! I’ve been thinking of making the move to self hosted and give my site a new look. I’m a little nervous about running into problems along the way.

    Your site is beautiful!

      Thank you so much! Depending on what your goals are long-term for your website, I would say unfortunately it is kind of a necessary evil, you know? A couple of quick pieces of advice that I have from just going through the process (and neglecting to do some of these things myself)…

      1.) Make sure to export a text file with all of your site content before you start doing anything.
      2.) Keep a spreadsheet of all of your wordpress followers and email subscribers.
      3.) Make sure your work is externally backed up somewhere.
      4.) Consider buying a “guided transfer” from the people at WordPress.com. You can find this in the online shop – same place you would purchase customized themes and stuff.
      5.) Be prepared to be patient! Haha it takes a while for everything to start working properly and there might be some things you need to fix. If you keep a long-term mindset, any minor break is just a bump in the road.

      Let me know if you have any more questions when/if you take the plunge! I would love to help you however I can.

    • Thanks Allie! I’ve just began researching so I really appreciate your tips. I think I’ll do it before the end of the year, I plan to buy the guided transfer. If it saves me a major headache it will be worth it (hopefully). :)

      Perfect. Sounds like you know what you’re doing! Haha I can’t say the same for myself…
