Journeys and Jottings – A “new” look

Hello everyone ! Welcome to this edition of Journeys and Jottings. I am very excited. I am unveiling the new look on the blog and we have worked the entire month making it happen . I would love to know what you guys think – both of the blog and the logo.

The blog is over twelve years old and I finally decided that it needs a new design and logo as well.  And you will also see that there is a different content strategy that will evolve from a few travels as well this year.

I am a little late this month, but every delay brings with it something worthwhile. So while this month had a lot of hiccups,  we are back with a bang ! This is the second time I am having a new look for the blog.  The first one was almost five years ago when I moved from Blogger to Word Press. And now we are making a whole lot of changes which will be work in progress,

The month came with a lot of hiccups. Server issues , clean ups and even the site had been down for a few days. I had to change the theme at the last minute as well. Added to it, I had a bit of an issue with GA code as well, as the traffic was not monitored for over three weeks. But that is history.

So, here we are – a new look . Do let me know what you guys think and send me your feedback. As we are still doing a few tweaks here and there, we will be making a few more changes. But I would like to hear from you ..

    This is great. Looking forward to more. Why don’t you add a place for readers to share their travel experiences. Will add to content and participation, I believe

    Hey, Lakshmi. I like the clean look of the logo and the idea that your readers are joining you on your journeys. I’m sure that many would love to lead the life you do, but as you’ve penned down so well in ‘Seven frequently asked questions on travel blogging’ it requires a lot of hard work and perseverance.
    Here’s a toast to the new look and to traveling even more with you. Happy journeys!

    Have been reading you for some time now. My takeaway is this, Lakshmi… my vantage point. Your photos/ comments on your homeland are superior to those from your international travels. My preference would be for you to keep those later travels personal; let locals – as you are in India – handle their own turfs. There are millions of international travelers (read: wanderers), just like you and me, and each carries away impressions from travels away from home; they are personal to their experiences and what they happen to see, unless followers are friends and family, of course. Take no offense: this comments applies to other bloggers I read, as well. Your blogging about your own backyard carries much greater weight, for me at least. I’ll leave it at that! Thanks for blogging! MikeG
