For those of you loyal Traveluster followers who have been around for a while, you no doubt have noticed my fancy new site design! For any new to my site, welcome! I hope you like the new look and feel! It has been a labor of love – and three months in-the-making…. I won’t bore you with the tedious tech and business details, but let’s just say that I’ve pulled a few hairs out here and there, after hiring and firing three different programers (actually, two quit on me), the fourth one was the charm. And the design! THAT was a process in and of itself (and completely separate). Then came the messy migration from wordpress.com to my new and improved, self-hosted site…..
Essentially, my site is still a work in progress and will be for the near future, as I meticulously comb through each and every archived article to re-upload missing photographs, fix broken links, and SEO-optimize every post and photo. Like I said, I won’t bore you with all the details (too late!! HA!). It’s a bit of a nightmare, but I guess it’s a good nightmare to have, relatively speaking.
All of this to say, please excuse my mess while my site undergoes construction! As you may know (if you’ve been following me), I’m somewhere high in the sky right now, en route to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Or maybe I’ve already landed- who knows! I just wanted to apologize in advance for my slowness in “fixing” the bugs in my site. I’ll be busy experiencing tango, vino, gauchos, estancias, and Iguazu Falls for the next two weeks. I’ll be posting my regular three(ish) times a week, but I won’t have much time for maintenance. Please bear with me through these growing pains! I plan to turn my full attention back to streamlining The Traveluster in August- so that it’s a smoothly running, well-oiled machine!
I hope you’re all having a fabulous summer! And do me a favor, will ya? Leave me a comment below and let me know 1) How you like the new site design (or if you DON’T like it at all!) and 2) What are your travel plans this summer or what trips have you taken already?
Thanks! See ya on the flipside!
P.S. Here are some photos from last weekend’s 48 hour jaunt to DC (well, technically northern Virginia) for a dear friend’s wedding.
Avocado tea heaven! Always making the most of every trip, we visited some of the best Vietnamese restaurants in the U.S., including Four Sisters and Bahn Mi DC! I miss good Vietnamese food!! We came to town for this little lady! What a beautiful bride she was! The best wedding cake ever!!
