Update – New Blog Theme
Last month I posted about some new additions to the site. Included in that post and those changes were the new addition to the side hustle and affiliate page. I also promised there would be more updates coming soon. I don’t mean for this to be a long post by any means. Just want to update everyone else on the progress who may be following along. It took a little time, but I was finally able to update the theme of Dividend Daze!
The old theme though functional, lacked a lot of the substance and features I was looking for long term. Everyone wants to grow their blog and see progress, so a quality theme is an important step in that retrospect. I wanted a theme I could have for a long time and have enough features to continue to grow the blog on. While my last theme was free, I figured a premium theme would have better success for the long term.
So I took to the internet to find the perfect theme. A few of the sites I looked at are MyThemeShop and TemplateMonster (These are affiliate links. If you are looing for a new theme as well, I recommend checking out these sites). As you can see I selected this theme, which is very minimalistic and perfect for what I need it for. It should be slightly faster and more SEO friendly. The old theme also stopped receiving updates which this one keeps getting updated. So new features will continue to be added as well as extra security features.
Social media options were also very lacking in my old theme. This one does have a few more options to play around with. For example, the new widget on the sidebar with social media counts. They are bigger and more prominent on the page, I kind of want to click on them myself haha. Also there are a few more sharing options on each post that look a lot nicer than my old ones.
I am still working out a few bugs and settings with this theme so just takes a little time. Let me know if you come across anything that looks funny or needs to be added/ removed/ changed.
Normally, I wouldn’t really post about something like this but I figured it makes for a good place for everyone to comment with their input. Easier than having to email me about something. I do appreciate everyone’s feedback. Do you like the theme? Did you like the old one better? Which aspects about it do you like/ dislike? So far I am happy with this theme choice.
Thanks again to everyone that reads or follows my blog. Enjoy the new theme and I hope to keep improving and implementing new features over time, providing more value to you all. Don’t forget to follow me on social media if you have not done so yet. Here are links to my Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest pages. Enjoy!
