I finally did it!! Late last night, I ditched my circa-2009 WordPress theme and the logo that I had slapped together during another late night session, and replaced them both with a snazzier, cleaner new version of…everything! I hope you like the new logo and the airy new layout. It should be simpler, faster, and work better on more devices (hello, dear mobile readers, I love you too!).
I’ve still got a few tweaks to make here and there, but it’s finally on its feet and I’m super-duper excited.
Also exciting, I’ve dropped Feedburner (what’s that, circa-2005?), and replaced it with Mad Mimi for sending out new post notifications. I’ve copied over the email list, so hopefully everything goes smoothly with that, too.*
And now, an even more important announcement (drumroll please)…
October Unprocessed is back, now in its fifth year!
As you probably know, each year I lead October Unprocessed, challenging people to eat no processed food for the entire month.**
I took the first challenge with my friends Dana and Lindsey, back in 2009 before I started blogging. Since then, I’ve led the challenge here, while sharing guest posts from other bloggers, authors, and experts on a range of “unprocessed” topics throughout the month. It’s been a life-changing experience for me and for so many people who have decided to take the leap and participate.
I’ve set up a separate page for the challenge, which includes how I define “unprocessed” and the pledge itself. If you haven’t done so already, please jump over to that page, find out what it’s all about, and take the pledge!
* If you run into any issues with the new site design or emails or whatever, please let me know. Thanks!
** I encourage everyone to participate at a level that’s comfortable for them, so if a month is too much of a commitment, that’s okay. Read more on the main page.
