A few weeks ago I updated the design here on my website. My primary motivation at the moment is to share my personal experiences, so I wanted my visitors to only be shown posts from my Journal, but still wanted to be able to publish other content.
A few years ago, I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Allison Vesterfelt and her husband Darrell. They were in town promoting her book, Packing Light, and wanted to meet up at Starbucks for a cup of coffee. Since then, we’ve become really close friends, but it was her story that really impacted me.
If you take a look at the bottom of the page in my footer, you’ll notice that it does not display the default text that is output by the Genesis Framework. Many sites display “Made with Love” or “Handcrafted with Love” in that space, and I wanted to do something similar with mine. In a few quick steps it was easy to do.
Back in 1998, one of my favorite musicians was Jewel. She had just released Spirit, a brilliant coffeeshop album, and reflected a lot of what she was going through at the time.
