My latest project was another Blogger to WordPress conversion, this time for www.larecetadelafelicidad.com/. The old site had a great dedicated following, fantastic photos and recipes, but lacked confidence in showing its ability. The old homepage was bland and only had one blog post showing with a tiny link to view the previous posts underneath. There was no search function or category listings.
The author of this great blog SandeeA wanted to keep the large photos but also keep the design clean and tidy. Designing a website or blog theme for a client is never easy and you must guide the client into the right direction but at all times listen to what your client wants.
In the end the design worked perfectly for the blog. The great photography by SandeeA plays a major part on the homepage and really makes her previous recipes stand out in a more confident way. You can now search through the entire catalog of recipes as well as browsing all the recipes.
With all these images on the homepage its vital that the text links are also prominent together with the options to share her recipes via Facebook, Twitter and Google and keep her subscribers happy.
