Blog Changes

by Marcy on December 16, 2009 · 10 comments

If you are a fan of Stretching a Buck on Facebook, you might have read earlier today that I have been busy behind the scenes making a few changes to this site. Over the next couple of days you may experience a few hiccups when it comes to receiving my feed (via email or reader) as well as viewing my updates. These issues should resolve themselves by the weekend (if they occur at all!).

My hope is that you will find the new Stretching a Buck to be more user friendly. I am currently working to update the navigation bar found directly under my header image. Take a few minutes to poke around and let me know what you think! I want you to be able to find the information that you want to find quickly, so I encourage your feedback if you think there is something that I can do better.

Thanks again for reading and for being patient with my slow down in posts the past couple of days. Things should be back to business as usual starting this evening.

where is your blogroll list? I love that list……

Lisa – it is under the “ABOUT” tab in the nav bar above.

I love the new header! Of all the blogs I follow you always have the best Kroger and Meijer lists, now they are even easier to find!

I’m liking the photo deals section!
Are you going to have little synopsis under all the deals listed?
Like right now if I go under Freebies, I then have to click each one to see the details & then see if it’s still valid or not.

& I hope you bring back a section telling us about yourself

Excited to see the new layout!!

I really like the new header. It’s going to be a lot easier going back to prior posts to check out deals (I usually have to do this for grocery store deals). Thanks for all the hard work!

Cheryl – no worries, I’ll have new info in the “about me” section soon.

Thanks for all of the feedback everyone. Keep it coming! :-)

My “about” page is now updated. :-)

Looking good! I especially like how you have a white background now – makes it so much faster to load. I also really love the nav bar at the top – great job!

Hey Marcy! Just FYI – I just realized this AM that your feed hasn’t been coming to my Google Reader since the 16th.

I’m unsubbing then resubbing, which should take care of the problem, but I’m thinking you have a bunch of other readers expeiencing the same issue!
