Hello! It’s been a while…a long while. Almost two months, in fact. Please allow me to explain my unplanned summer hiatus–Looks & Books’ server was hacked in mid-July, causing many web firewalls and filters to block it as “malicious content.” Joe was diligent in finding the problem and correcting it, but it took a great deal of time. While we were at fixing the technical glitches, we also decided this was the perfect opportunity to finally re-design the site, something I’ve been wanting to do for nearly a year.
Once all of that was finally done-(ish….still working on some tweaks!), I really had no excuse but to dive right back in. But I found myself procrastinating, waiting for the perfect moment to get back into it. The fact is, there is no perfect moment. Writing this blog is time-consuming and I’ve been busy with work, freelance projects, wedding planning, and taking care of our new dog Chief. Oh, and also enjoying the rest of the summer while it lasts.
As relaxing as this break has been, Looks & Books is important to me and I plan to approach this new iteration with enthusiasm and maybe even a few new features. It just took a hurricane (or tropical storm) to get me to sit down and put words back on the screen.
What have you been up to this summer? Read any good books? Discover any cute designers or items? What do you think of the new design? Leave it in the comments!
