Welcome to the New Look of Food in Jars

food-in-jars-new-look

For many months now, my friend Roz has been working on a refresh for this site. She has squeezed it into her evenings and weekends and finally, this last Sunday night, she and Scott flipped the switch and made the new look live. I am entirely delighted by it.

You’ll notice that the navigation has moved from the header bar to the left rail of the site. A few people have mentioned that they miss the list of links out to other blogs. It still exists and can be found here (currently, the link is buried on my about page, but I’m trying to find a better, more obvious home for it).

Another thing that might jump out at you is that there are some new ads up in the right sidebar. Instead of simply using an ad network, I’m now offering anyone with a Food in Jars-appropriate ad to buy space in my sidebar. Prices start at $75 for a small ad and there are price points for lots of different budgets. Click here if you’re interested in learning more.

Finally, there are still a few bugs, broken links, and issues, but we’re working on fixing those as soon as we can. If you notice anything looking amiss, please do let me know!

    Liking your new look! I just starting reading your site only last week, and I just can’t stop. I started at the beginning of your blog but I’m no longer finding the archives…. maybe I’m just not seeing them? Thank you for making canning much more approachable.

      The archives still exist, but they’re on the list of things that don’t have a good home yet. Here’s the link directly to them: http://foodinjars.com/archives/

        Thank you for the link. I had my first attempt at making jam today, your vanilla strawberry recipe. I was soo nervous but everything turned out ok and now I have some pretty little jars lined up on the counter. Can’t wait to dig in. Celebrating my independance from Smuckers today, ha ha.

    Very nice look to it. Summery, fresh, with a vintage touch to it. Just the sort of look a modern canning site should have!

    It’s super cool! One comment–the header fonts are pretty hard to read on mobile. They go kind of fuzzy when zoomed out, at least in Safari.

    I love your new look! I have had you in my google reader, now bloglovin’ for awhile. Then I pulled my new canning magazine out and read your piece on page 40, so fun! My new goal I added to my to do list is for sure canning. I am growing lavender and would love to do some canning with it in a jelly form:–) Thank you for all you share, and do! Take care, Terra
