Ask the Readers – Redesign of Work Happy Now

Help the CauseI’m gathering information for a redesign of Work Happy Now. The current theme has been outgrown by my readership as well as myself. I have no need to trash this theme because it’s been the best theme that I’ve ever used. I’m just picky and I just want the best for all my readers.


Some of the changes I will make:


  • Three columns instead of two

  • Color change – white background with splashes of red and orange.

    • I want to convey passion.

  • Banners in the right column to highlight popular post and ebooks.

  • Summaries of each post on the home page, so visitors have to click on the “read full article” link to read the full story.

    • I believe people will be more willing to comment if they see other people’s comments at the end of the post.


What do you think? Am I missing any changes to my website that you would like to see? Just let me know in the comments. If you’re feeling shy then just send me a message from the contact page. This blog is yours too, so give as much feedback as you want. I would like to make WHN as reader friendly as possible.


Thanks for your help in advance.

  1. Hey Tom, you make a good point about the three column set-up, but I’ve thought long and hard about it. I think it will work for me because I’m not going to put any text, either on the right or left column. It’s going to be just a few sparse images to draw people to other parts of my site – similiar to ittybiz. If it doesn’t work I can always go back to the two column set-up.

  2. Hey Canadian Developer and Jacob, looks like I have three people who don’t like the three column look. I was hoping that I might be one of the few who could keep things simple and easy to navigate, but I might have to rethink my stance. I really appreciate the input.

    Hey Wendy, I’ll always keep my RSS readers happy. I will make sure that it looks good in Google reader.
