I’ve had the pleasure of working with Merrick on numerous occasions over the past year and have become a huge fan of her blog in the process. Merrick initially wanted to give her blog a little facelift to make it clean, sleek, and simple. We added a sticky navigation bar with drop-down items to highlight her content and blog topics. She then came back to me to add a search feature and social media icons to the navigation and a full width instagram feed above it. Another thing we added was a category gallery page (you can view it here) to showcase all the posts under a specific label.

The newest addition has been a Custom Mobile Template that matches her existing blog design. We made the navigation responsive by changing it to an accordian navigation on smaller screen sizes while keeping the drop-down items and social media icons within that. We removed post excerpts on mobile and instead used full posts that are cohesive with the overall design.
