LFB got a facelift this weekend!

This weekend, I decided to go with the less-is-more approach and have reduced the design, menus, and sidebar content on LFB considerably. I hope that this approach will make the site a lot easier to navigate. If you are looking for a particular series, do not fear! I have a whole page dedicated to LFB’s re-occurring series, which you can find on the sidebar under the category “quick browse.” I will still be making some small changes in the coming weeks and months here and there, but I am really happy with this simpler approach to things.

I would love to hear your feedback on the new design and to find out if it is easier to understand what LFB is all about at one quick glance!

Schedule Changes

You may have also noticed that I have been posting less frequently during the last few months. As much as I wanted to stick to a schedule of daily posting, with all my new life changes – moving, fixing up my new flat, starting my photography business, doing photography client work – it is just not feasible to force myself to churn out daily posts. It has taken the fun out of blogging, put me under tremendous amount of pressure, and makes me feel like a hamster in a wheel, never really finding time do make big things happen for LFB or my photography business.

So for the time being, I am taking my foot off the gas for a bit and will be posting an average of every other day. There will be some weeks that I might be posting daily, and I do really hope to make that the standard soon but for now, this is just the best option! I hope you guys won’t be too disappointed!

  • well done rae :) love the grey, can’t wait to have a proper browse through soon again!

    • rae

      Thanks Lisi, so glad you like the new design and hope you get a chance to have a proper browse through very soon!

    • rae

      Thanks, Kate!

  • Love the new layout, very simple but easy to navigate =o)


    • rae

      So glad to hear that it is easy to navigate! Do you find the navigation easier and less overwhelming than before?

  • It looks great Rae! Glad to hear everything’s been going well, don’t feel guilty for not posting as often!

      Thanks so much Jane, and yeah it’s a fine line because I am trying to really make LFB both my passion and career so I feel this obligation to daily post and keep raising numbers, but I think I need to sit back for a bit because I feel a bit like a dog chasing it’s tail!

  • I get what you mean life can get pretty busy at times! its good to find a schedule to fit into that

      Could not agree more with you, Candice!

  • Elizabeth Hisle

    Post whenever it’s best for you! I have always said that when blogging is no longer fun, I’ll quit. So keep it fun for you. :)


    • rae

      Oh I agree with you entirely! I am still going to try to shoot for as many days a week as possible, but try not to take it so hard if I’m not able to do so every week!

  • Looks great! I’ve been seeing these kinds of designs more lately and I absolutely love them :) Quality over quantity always, so don’t feel bad for not posting every day. Xx Eline


    • rae

      Thanks so much lady! And yes, I guess like all things, even blog designs go through different fads and I think these very clean minimalistic ones are very popular at the moment! And yes quality over quantity is key, quality ever day is the ultimate dream though!

  • I love the new design! And don’t feel guilty for not posting as often – quality over quantity is always a good rule of thumb, and a writer’s love for what they do is better than someone who puts out daily posts because they think they have to.

      Thank you so much lady and yes I know it is a good rule of thumb and I never post shit quality stuff (at least I hope not, but I only post things I am proud of!) but I just end up staying up for hours just to churn it out and it just hasn’t been healthy for me. I also get so behind on commenting here too and just feel so horrible for not being able to reply to everyone and then comment on their blogs, but it really takes hours a day if I were to stay on top of it all. Still trying to figure out how to handle the commenting dilemma :(

  • Cool new design! I look forward to your new posts

    • rae

      Thanks Lulu!

  • OMG! I just love love love and adore your new blog template! ♥♥♥ ◠‿◠ Another tiny reason, why to stop here more often!

      Thanks Alice!

  • I’m loving the new look! It’s so clean and minimal. Totally my style!


    • rae

      Mine too! Thanks, Andrea!

  • Love the design and your video!
    I also visited your YouTube channel and subscribed! Great job!


    • rae

      Thanks so much and how sweet of you, thanks for the youtube follow!

  • meg

    Loving the design! And girl, post when you feel the need to do so! I think it’s the best way to blog, to be honest. It works for me, I like to think.

    • rae

      Thanks so much, and yes I agree! I mean I would love to post daily and I will try to keep doing so, but I won’t beat myself up for it when I can’t manage it!

  • I love the new design. So minimalistic and easy to use. Well done!

    • rae

      Thanks, lady!

  • The new design is fantastic. It’s very clean and showcases the photographs well. I go back and forth between a white background or grey with content in white all the time. Makes everything look neat!

    • rae

      Thanks so much! I felt that as well – that this new layout is a lot better for showcasing photography.

  • This summer I’ve been pretty good about keeping on top of blogging, but these last two weeks before school have been crazy for me, and it’s only about to get crazier with school starting again, so I don’t mind your schedule change at all! The new design looks great :D -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    • rae

      Thanks for the support, lady and yes, sometimes life just gets too busy! So gald you like the design!

  • Love the ‘quick browse’ section on the left, you have such a clean and neat layout!

      Oh so glad that helps navigate things better! Thanks Natalie!

  • Congrats on LFB’s facelift! I love the new design! And it’s pretty nice to hear you are rescheduling so you can balance everything. I feel like I’ll have to do that pretty soon hahaha <3

    • rae

      Thanks so much and yes, balance is key – will keep trying to daily post, but will not be do dogmatic about it because it just isn’t healthy. And yes, adjust your posting to fit your needs, girl!

  • Stella Asteria

    Congrats on your new blog facelift my dear! I am on the re-scheduling process to right now and I love it, it is so exciting right?
    Thanks for sharing! x

    • rae

      Thanks so much Stella! And yes, re-scheduling sometimes just has to happen!

  • Congratulations on the new blog design! I just found your blog after, so I didn’t know the before, but this design is SUPER user friendly! I’m loving the simplicity. Also, I really relate to what you’re saying about posting less to keep blogging more stress free, and fun as opposed to stressful from all the constant deadlines. Good luck with the new schedule, and I am excited to see the content you create!

      Thanks so much and no worries, but so glad that you did find LFB and like it! And yes, blogging is such a fine balance between enjoyment and stress haha! Glad to have you as part of the LFB community now!

  • I absolutely love the design!

    • rae

      Thanks Nicole!

  • I love the new design! It looks beautiful, and I love that you still kept all the posts underneath each other as you scroll down. A lot of the newer layouts I’ve been seeing around when people redesign their blogs look beautiful but kind of lose the bloggy feel that still makes the most sense to me when it comes to navigation. You did a great job! :)


    • rae

      Thanks so much and yes I agree – while I would like to have it in a two-grid system (having some problems with getting that to work, ha!) I know what you mean. Some new layouts are so fancy and magazine-style that they really do not feel like blogs and I often get really confused about which post is the most recent and it just ends up annoying me! A blog should definitely still have a bloggy feel. Thanks love!

  • I love your blog design! I have been eyeing on this theme before! :) I’m a new reader by the way <3

      Thanks so much, Janine and so glad to have you as a new reader! Welcome! :D

    The new look is perfect! Love the coloring, fonts, and layout, and it’s still so you. :) x

      Thanks so much Stephanie!

  • So much love for your new design girl! Nice and clean. Congrats!

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Corina!

  • Do you, you do well so fantastically :)

    • rae

      Aww shucks!

  • Your decision is understandable, good luck with everything that’s going on! I love the design!

      Thanks so much lady and hope you are doing okay. I read your last post, if you need anything please email me – I can then exchange skype info with you if you like and we can have a bit of a chit chat :)

  • Your blog looks so lovely
    and posting everyday is quite hard, that is understandable :)


    • rae

      It really is! I would like to still aim for that but not hold myself locked down to such a demanding schedule!

  • I really love this new layout, it’s so beautiful and simple and the fonts are gorgeous. Love how it showcases your photography more too!

    • rae

      Thanks so much, Joyce! And yes, it is such a great layout for showcasing photography! Could not agree more!

  • The new layout looks AWESOME! And I completely know what you mean. I too have been wanting to start a side photography gig, and with a full-time PR job AND a blog, I’ve let my posting fall to the wayside. It’s not that I want to, but like you said, it’s not feasible to post daily when there are so many things going on. Quality is better than quantity in my opinion. Major props to the ladies who find time to do it all!

    Natalie Was Here

    • rae

      Thank you so much lady! And yes it just honestly just too hard to do it all – I am going to try but not beat myself up over the head if I can’t manage it. Best of luck to all that you are trying to do – it sounds like you have a ton on your plate as well! And yes quality over quantity errryday. I just hope to one day be churning out quality posts every day consistently!

  • LOVE the new layout. Simplicity is always so elegant :)
    ps; adorable little feline in your photo, I love kitties.


    • rae

      Thanks so much, Marta!

  • I love the new layout, it’s so chic and elegant, and nice and clear to navigate too! I know what you mean about changing up your posting schedules, sometimes it just has to be done to allow for more time for you without blogging getting too hectic. Thank you for the very kind words on my last post too, those paper flowers sounded so cute! – Tasha

    • rae

      Aww thank you so much Natasha! And yes it can just get to be a little too much somtimes! And no worries, will be sharing some photos of the flowers soon!

      • Yay, I look forward to them!

  • Been a silent reader for a while, but this time I have to say it out loud that I super love the new design! x


    • rae

      Aw thank you so much, and silent readers are welcome as well! So glad to finally get the chance to “meet” you and say hi though!
