Yikes! Things do indeed look different around here! I’m making some aesthetic changes to MoneyUnder30.com for some good reasons. Call it a redesign or call it Spring cleaning, my ultimate goal is to create a better experience for you.
The new design you are seeing is the free WordPress theme Misty-Look by Sadish Bala. I saw it on one of my favorite non-financial blogs, StrongLifts.com. I liked it so much I decided to implement it here.
But I didn’t just change the theme because I was bored…
I changed the theme of Money Under 30 to simplify the site and put the focus solely on the content. As I continue to build upon the tremendous success I’ve enjoyed recently, I want to stop worrying about how custom design tweaks. I admit this new theme isn’t going to win any cutting edge design awards, but it does what a good theme should—it allows visitors to easily read my content and (hopefully) navigate around the site.
Two improvements I especially hope you’ll enjoy are:
- A site search feature that is easily accessible on the top navigation bar.
- Ads that now appear to the right of the main content instead of on the left, hopefully providing an easier reading experience.
This new design is the first improvement of several to come as I work to streamline and “professionalize” Money Under 30. Stay tuned for more. And, as always, please send me any questions, suggestions, or complaints!
