*update 11-18-08 7:30 AM: We implemented the new template last night and now just have some tweaking to do and a few more features to add! It’ll continually get more organized over the next few days! Hope you love it as much as we do!
After a little email feedback I felt I needed to email all of you and let you know that the new design for Southern Plate is not permanent. In the process of changing over to a different platform (and server), we spent a few sleepless nights working to make sure all of my past posts and recipes were transferred seamlessly. There was a lot of manual work that had to be done and so that was, of course, what we had to focus our time on.
We are now working on the design. The old design was on a blogger acct and wouldn’t just transfer over, so we had to start from scratch. We have a new design (we being me and my husband whom I have now drafted as my personal webmaster – a.k.a. slave) and are working on getting everything all set up in it. Once we are done and have it all organized and visually appealing, we will activate it and Southern Plate will be instantly more user friendly and visually appealing than ever before!
I received an email from someone who was very upset about how the site looks now and I am so grateful that they are that passionate about Southern Plate. Please know though, that however passionate you are, I am even more so. Southern Plate is my baby and I have a deep emotional attachment to everything featured on that site as well as to all of the wonderful comments and new friends I have met who are kind enough to take time out of their lives to read my ramblings and share these recipes with me.
Hang in there, have faith in me, and please continue reading. This is such a minor thing, and bigger and better things are just days (and a few more sleepless nights) away!
