PlainSimpleFaith Given A New Look

In the last few days I’ve been doing some minor updates for my blog, PlainSimpleFaith. You will find that the general layout has remained pretty much the same.

Here’s a summary of the changes made:

  • New logo & color scheme. Simplified & minimized. 
  • Small enhancements to streamline the site’s interface.
  • Responsive layout. The site has been optimized to fit on all browser widths/resolutions and on all mobile devices. Go ahead and scale your browser window and see how it automatically adapts. I felt this was needed, since my articles are often read on mobile devices.
  • Updated E-mail layout for subscribers.
  • A few bugs were fixed. The ‘tweets’ section to the right has been fixed, along with a few broken links.

There are also few changes I anticipate coming in the future:

  • Bookstore, complete with online ‘shopping cart’. As you know, my wife has written & contributed to some books, and I we’d like a place to sell them in addition to TheColleyHouse.org. Web traffic to PlainSimpleFaith has been steadily increasing, making it an ideal site for an online storefront. 
  • Donation page. I operate this site out-of-pocket, and the maintenance and update costs are steadily increasing. If you enjoy this site and wish to contribute to its future, I’ll be adding something like a PayPal donation box somewhere.
  • Resources page. More links, reference documents, etc.

If you notice some quirks to the new PlainSimpleFaith, please send me an E-mail letting me know (ben@plainsimplefaith.com). I want this site to be as helpful as possible as you seek to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord” (2 Pet. 3:18).

I really appreciate your readership; it is an honor to have you visit this website.

So, new look! Nothing profound, I know, but what do you think?

    Looks great! As one who also recently did a redesign, I know the time and effort this took. Great job, and keep up the good work, brother!

      Thanks brother! You’re right, it can be kind of tedious. By the way, the new design on your site looks very good! I’m glad you did it.
