A Blog Refresh


From the beginning everything on "The Clothes Horse" has been a labor of love by me. I began snapping pictures with my basic camera hanging from a tree branch and typing up posts at 1am after I closed a night shift at my convenience store job. My photography has improved (upgrading to a tripod helped a lot!), my writing schedule is more sane, and even my personal style has developed through the intervening years. What hasn't changed much is my site-building skills. But I sort of like being this one-woman team; I sometimes decline Thomas's help with photographs because I'd prefer to take my own and I've let a blog layout I was tired of linger because I didn't want to ask for someone else's help. But change is good and while this blog is still a one-woman team most days I did get help from Kaelah to make the new layout/look. She gave me something updated and clean; a site where the photographs can be the focus. I definitely recommend her if you're looking for a website update for yourself. It's good to be independent, but it's also good to know when to ask for help!
So the blog is bright, shiny and new-looking and I'm re-branding slightly from The Clothes Horse to A Clothes Horse with a custom url (finally!) to match. When I started blogging no one was using the name "clothes horse" but a few months after my blog started to grow, while I was still a student, every domain containing my pseudonym was bought. I really love my blog name and still identify with it so I've been reluctant to change it, but I finally found the perfect solution in a minor name adjustment. I hope you like the new "A Clothes Horse" and continue to stick around for more style posts and 1am ramblings.

  18. Looks about the same to me and isn't even responsive.

  19. @Anonymous, can you explain to me what you mean by unresponsive? Maybe it's an issue I can get fixed. Mobile does look the same as it was before.

  21. I love the new look! It's so strange to see something different after following you so long on your old blog layout, but I like this sleek minimal look. And I hope it inspires you to keep writing and photographing! :D
