Last month we launched a brand new Showit blog website for Chicago blogger, Jess of The Windy City Mama. She hadn’t updated her design in years and wanted a total overhaul to her online home.
We started with a new color palette and slightly updated version of her logo to create an online experience that’s not only visually appealing but also highly functional. Without further ado, let’s dive into the fantastic features that make the new thewindycitymama.com a must-visit destination!
Jess opted for our custom web design package and within two weeks her blog had been migrated to Showit and launched to the public. Honestly, that’s why we created this service—simple, straightforward with a quick turnaround so you can focus on growing your business.
Soft and Inviting Showit Blog Website for Chicago-Based Mom Blogger
1. Stunning Visuals and User-Friendly Design
Her website has undergone a stunning transformation, boasting a sleek, modern design that’s as easy on the eyes as it is to navigate. Which is the most important! Having your readers be able to easily discover new and existing content so they stay on the page longer.
Blog design is where I really embraced Showit’s powerful design capabilities! It’s so flexible and allows you to do so many cool things to create a unique and visually striking website that captures the essence of Windy City Mama. Each page is thoughtfully crafted for an exceptional user experience, making it easier than ever to explore her content.
2. Seamless Integration of Showit and WordPress
The marriage of Showit and WordPress is one of the most exciting aspects of our blog website redesigns. We’ve harnessed the design flexibility of Showit and the robust content management of WordPress to offer a seamless experience that makes managing a blog a breeze and making design updates so easy.
Showit takes care of the design, while WordPress powers the content. This ensures our website not only looks fantastic but also functions flawlessly.
As a ex full-time blogger, this has easily been the best combination for blogging and design that I have ever experienced.
3. Lightning-Fast Loading Speed
We know that people make split second decisions about whether they want to stay on a site, and having a site that loads fast is necessary. With Showit and WordPress, we’ve optimized her website for speed ensuring that content loads quickly!
4. Mobile Responsiveness
In an age where many of us browse the internet on our mobile devices, a mobile-responsive design is crucial. One thing I love about Showit is that we have the ability to design the mobile site completely separately so that it looks and performs perfectly on your phone, which we all know people are looking at more than desktops anyway!
5. Engaging Blog and Content Features
As a blog-centric website, content is the heart of The Windy City Mama website. With the power of WordPress, we can provide businesses and bloggers with a user-friendly reading experience.
It’s easy to explore the latest articles, videos, and updates.
6. Enhanced Search and Navigation
Whenever I design a website, navigation is always top of mind. The goal is to make it as simple as possible to find the pages and content people are looking for. Too many tabs is overwhelming, too few and people don’t know where to click!
We utilized a unique navigation that has the most important links at the top and then a collapsing menu for blog categories and additional links so they’re easy to find, but keeps the top of the page looking clean and tidy!
I absolutely loved working on this site for Jess and bringing her vision to life. This redesign represents a significant step forward in growing her business. If you’re ready to up-level your business, I’d love to be able to help you achieve your goals!
