My Latest Big Project: The Mom Invented Website

The new Mom Invented website

The new Mom Invented website

Well, today marks the official launch of the new Mom Invented site. I’ve spent the past many weeks getting the look in place, the content ready and the custom templates set up. It was my first time working with the Mimbo Pro 2 theme, and though I still have a few things to work out, it’s been pretty easy to work with and the developer has been great with responding to my questions.

Though there’s plenty more we plan on adding, the site has launched with well over 100 posts from its past newsletters, and it’s ready to start bringing women with business and product ideas the information they need to really get going and realize their dreams.

This is by far the biggest site I’ve set up, and I’m really excited to see how it grows. So check it out and support Tamara by leaving a comment or sending a message.

Hello New France To Go!

I’ve been meaning to work on my blog’s design for a long time and just kept putting it off. But when Evan purchased a theme for his new knowledge base site from Woo Themes, they were (and still are) having a buy one get one free deal, so I found one I liked, called Thick, and started playing around.

It’s quite different from the barely modified WordPress default theme I had for nearly a year and a half, and I’m excited about the new possibilities for showcasing more content, more photos and more updates from my social sites.

The old France to Go

I am sad to see my old header go — I did love that canoe photo Evan took of me in Big Bear. You can still find it on my About Me page.

Next up will be a redesign of my portfolio site, which is much needed since I’m doing so much more work than just magazine/website writing.

Let me know what you think of the changes and if there’s anything you feel is missing. I’m not qute sure about the background yet, but I did have a lot of fun going through all those photos from my travels over the past couple of years. Look closely — there are 64 different travel shots in there.

Here’s a non-faded, larger view of the background, including me sticking my head in an alligator’s mouth, tulips in Hyde Park, listening to sounds at Haus der Musik, Communist-era statues in Budapest, the London Eye, horseback riding in Spain, the Rose Bowl (in an Orange Bowl sweatshirt), Maui’s bamboo forest, the floating gate at Miyajima, the Osaka Sky Buildling, the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, the Temple of the Dawn in Bangkok, and me stalking an albino peacock.
