In true frugal living style, this is a DIY makeover by yours truly. I have a designer I would LOVE to use, but this little blog is going to have to do some more growing before I can afford to hire her. Someday!
Not only is this a blog make over in the visual sense, with a new logo, new navigation, and new colors, but it also marks a slight refocus on the blog content. Last month, before I started on my summer blogging break, I asked GrowingSlower readers to take a short survey, so I could find out how I could best meet your needs as real moms.
The response was truly amazing. I had been praying about the direction of the blog and your answers to the survey were reassurance to what I was already feeling the answer was. The way I can best serve you at this point is to provide you with simple, money saving tips that will work in your real life. Don’t worry, I definitely still plan to talk plenty about simple living, natural birth, and babies! But the driving focus and the deep need I’m seeing is that you are looking for more peace in your family finances.
So now, I am happy to introduce to you the new look for GrowingSlower…
You might remember, GrowingSlower used to look like this.
