My College Blog’s New Look!

If you’ve visited my college blog in the past, you probably did a double take today.

Yes, The College Solution looks dramatically different. And all I can say to that is THANK GOODNESS!

I had grown sick of the old look last year, but it required a lot of work before the launch day for the new site finally arrived.

You’ll find all my old posts still archived on the site and I’ll continue to blog about college as often as I did in the past. I hope that the new look to The College Solution will make visiting my college blog a more enjoyable experience. If you haven’t spent much time on the site, please do. There is lots to explore.

I think my updated college blog looks at least 1,000 times better than the old one. I want to thank Mike Dickerman, who redesigned the website from North Carolina and Visual Asylum for their design work — including the banner — right here in San Diego.

The blog is not completely finished, but it was in good enough shape to unveil the site today. I’d love to hear what you think.

As for me, I’m celebrating tonight.

      Thanks for your kind words…. About that Twitter link, I do have one. Just scroll to the bottom of my home page and you’ll find it on the bottom right hand corner. I love getting more Twitter followers!

        Hi Lynn,
        The new design looks great! I have a quick suggestion for you: have you considered adding a “Tweet this!” link to your posts? I wanted to share this post on Twitter, and it would’ve been much easier if you had those buttons.
        Thanks!
        -Jeff

          HI Jeff,

          Thanks for the suggestion! I’m going to pass it along to my web guy. I’ve been thinking the same thing. Currently, you can find Twitter at the bottom of my home page, but that’s not very useful.
