I’d like to thank Jennifer Dodd for all her incredible, fabulous, and helpful work on redesigning Abby’s Yarns. Thanks to all her hard work, we’re able to roll out the new and improved look and feel, and I’m going to actually be able to bring some sanity to archive content and make it easier for folks to find all the various things that have come to be hidden around here.
Working with Jenn has been terrific, and lots of food for thought about small business stuff and doing things right — so much so that this week, I’ll be doing a quick interview with her for the blog, to tie in with presenting all the various new features. But for now, I just want to say TA-DAH! Look, we have new blog.
And thank you, Jenn.
Tomorrow there’ll be a lengthier post talking about specific changes, but I wanted to take a moment and address a question that came in from a first-time commenter:
Suddenly my RSS reader is cluttered with tweets from this site. I like the blog, but if I wanted to read tweets, I’d be on Twitter. Can anything be done to respect the preferences of those of us who still enjoy complex ideas and syntax, or should I unsub?
One of the things we’re rolling out is separate RSS feeds for various types of content on this site. It looks like we rolled things out with the two main feeds swapped — the first being all article-type content, and the second including various other types as well (like tweets, new videos, and that sort of thing). We’ve updated that, so now (as intended) the primary RSS feed is posts and articles only, and the supplemental one is everything. And, coming in the next few weeks, category-specific feeds as well!
