That’s Not My Age has a new not-so-basic look!

Websites are like wardrobes, they need a refresh from time to time. And That’s Not My Age’s update was long overdue. Neglected while I knocked out a couple of books, the old site was feeling a bit sorry for itself, a bit basic. This summer, my aim was to whoop things up and so I’ve been working behind the scenes with a web designer/developer on a much-needed revamp. Aesthetically the new-improved That’s Not My Age is cleaner and more modern – and should be much easier to navigate. A couple of neat features have been added: going from post to post is simple and straightforward (when you finish reading one post, a box appears making continuing reading a doddle), superior categorisation means that all the glorious content is more readily available and I’ve added a new ‘Outfits’ section (with all the stuff that I wear). To improve aesthetics, I’ve ditched the sidebar for larger images and a pop-up bar. This isn’t going to flash up on-screen and drive you nuts, it will simply appear every few posts with my weekly selection of ‘Not-so-basic-basics‘, details about my book and so on. Widgets for my Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook pages are now in the top right hand corner. I won’t list every little detail here, but please have a look around and let me know what you think…

 

I’m delighted with the update. I was beginning to think that web design and development was the new plumbing – inundated with cowboys and charlatans, impossible to find anyone decent and when you do they are fully booked, forever. Anyhow. Thank you Tom at Stirtingale. If you’re looking for expert design advice, web development and tech support this is the most professional person I’ve ever worked with. By a long chalk.

Welcome to the new, improved That’s Not My Age; it’s not-so-basic. I hope you like it. And here are a few more everyday essentials.
