Building a website is a lot like moving into a new house.
We move in and arrange our belongings – maybe even hanging a few pictures on the walls. Then a week later, we realize that the furniture doesn’t seem quite right, so the bookcase in the living room is moved to a bedroom, and the picture hung in the upstairs hallway is moved to the wall next to the front door.
We want our homes to look good – and function well; sometimes we have to live in them a little to figure out how to get it just right.
The same is true for Thankful Moms.
Our site has been live since Monday, and we’re eager to know what you think. What do you like, and not like, about how it looks? Does it function well and make sense to you?
You may have noticed the menu above our photos at the very top of the page. When you click on any of those tabs they take you to different pages on our site. You can read my adoption story, and Jennifer’s and find links to some of our most popular posts.
There is a page for Kalkidan’s story too, which made me cry, so I decided to pace myself and will add more to it over time. Kalkidan is a huge part of why I continued to write One Thankful Mom for ten years – which is a long time in the blog world! She challenged me to grow and learn, cry out to God on my face, and seek meaning in my life.
I owe so much to her.
As I said Monday, this is not a turning away from the years at One Thankful Mom, rather a growing upward from the roots I put down there.
It is an honor to still be writing ten years later, and the fact that you are still reading nearly makes me cry. You are the best readers in the world.
