It has been a long time since I updated the look of Baking Bites’ main page, but I’ve been working on a new look for some time now and launched it this weekend. Sorry for any downtime. I know that I helped a lot of you out by e-mailing you recipes and messaging them through Facebook!
The new look has more pictures, although the photos on the main page are smaller to help increase page load time. You can still see the full size images when you load up the individual post pages and recipes. The main page only shows the first few blog posts, as well as some featured posts and baking tips, but you can click on the “blog” tab for a more traditional view of all the posts on the site!
I should mention that there are some cool new features on Baking Bites now, too. We are now mobile friendly, with a mobile layout that will work on iPhones and other smart phones and will rescale to work better on tablet computers and iPads!
We have a monthly newsletter put out in conjunction with Rodelle, makers of my favorite baking extracts, where you can get a recipe and some baking tips delivered straight to your inbox every month. No spam, just a recipe!
Finally, we also now have a very cool random post button at the top of the navigation bar. This button will show you a random post from the site and it is a great way to explore new recipes and be surprised by old favorites! Did you know that there are more than 3000+ posts on Baking Bites? There has never been a more fun way to explore them. A much improved recipe index will be coming in the next few weeks, as well as some other small improvements, so keep checking back for more updates and enjoy the new look of Baking Bites!
