Well you asked, I delivered.

When I asked for tips on better site navigation last week, several of you emailed me asking for me to make the site compatible for mobile devices.  I confess, I was a little confused and not sure what that looked like – then Dana sent me an example of a mobile friendly blog layout and the light bulb went on, oh that !  Thanks Dana!

It took some research but I figured it out. So for those of you who enjoy your blog reading on a mobile device, whether it’s an iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android, etc. there’s a new service in town when you visit CG – a mobile friendly one.

Here’s what you’ll now see on an iPad:

Notice how you’ll have immediate access to all the recent articles in chronological order for quick reading, and all the other good stuff is right at your fingertips too for when you’re away from your desktop.  And look, there’s a drop down easily navigable menu – sweet!

The same look on the iPhone too, very finger friendly menus for all of you.

And if for any reason you prefer to look at the site on your mobile device like it appears on your desktop, no worries, simply turn off the Mobile Theme in the footer:

I’ll be adding a social media page next, for whenever you want to connect on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest via your mobile device.  Also I’ve only tested in on the Apple products so let me know if you see anything wonky on the others…

Happy surfing!

Winners + Wecome Fall!

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

G’day all, hope you had a relaxing weekend!  We just got back from a four day getaway to Las Vegas where we hung out with the folks, explored some of the desert, and spent a lot of down time in the pool, bliss!  We had such a blast but I am exhausted and already soooo behind.  Funny how you need a vacation from your vacation, ya know?

I’m finally in the mood for fall, aren’t you?  Labor Day weekend always does that to me.  Time to put away all the summer decor and spruce up the house with autumn goodness.  I’m looking forward to sharing it all with you too.

I’m taking the rest of the day to get caught up – if you’ve emailed me lately and heard nothing but crickets, my apologies, I’ll do my best to get back to you today!
