While Janice and I are back in the United States with access to amazing internet, we wanted to spend some time on the blog to upgrade the layout, content and performance. While we are in the islands, it is very hard to find decent internet and working on the blog is extremely difficult at best. This is why the blogs about our adventures have a delay compared to the live map.
So during our trip through Nevada, Utah and Oregon – Janice and I discussed updating the website and I immediately got to work. We wanted to apply a theme that would display well on the phone & computer. After hours and hours of browsing through zillions of different themes, we decided on a new theme that was simple, elegant and much faster than the previous one.
We really hope you enjoy the new blog layout and experience several new features:
1. Much faster: I moved our blog to a different server provider and the pages will load much faster!
2. Layout: Better layout for our mobile users
3. Maps: New map that illustrates all of the places we traveled for Season 1 & 2. We will have the realtime map reactivated when we return to Grenada in the middle of July.
4. Homepage Slider: New carousel on the homepage that will allow for us to showcase our more popular blog posts.
We are still working on a few issues and layout preferences. We hope to have it 100% finished before we return to Grenada. Hope you enjoy and please browse around and send us comments and suggestions about the new layout / changes.
