Hello! Welcome welcome welcome to the new Channeling Contessa!!! I am so excited this day has finally come and I can share the new site with you all. Let me tell you, it’s been a long time in the works. I have the amazing Katelyn from Smitten Blog Designs to thank for transforming the ideas in my head into an actual blog. We’re still working out a few kinks so bear with me across the next few days. But let me give you a little tour!
Recipe Index: On the nav bar at the top you’ll see a link for the new Recipe Index! I am so excited about this. For months I’ve been longing for a better way to organize and navigate my recipes, and this is just that. All my dishes have been broken down into categories, and each individual dish is listed so you can easily browse.
Delicious Finds: On the right hand side you’ll see “Delicious Finds.” Beyond the recipe index, I wanted a section dedicated to highlighting specific CC recipes- ones from previous years that feature seasonal ingredients, or great dishes that have perhaps gotten a little buried. I’ll be changing those up each month.
CC Life & Home: While Channeling Contessa is primarily a food blog, since I started it, it’s slowly grown and expanded into other areas, namely my home and my life. I wanted things to be a organized as possible in the new space, so I’ve pulled out those posts and am now listing them in their own section. I also hope to grow this section, specifically in the area of home decorating and organization- so stay tuned for that too.
Biz Notes: Last week I introduced a new series focused on sharing snippets of my work life, now that I run my own business. I’ve dedicated a specific section to that as well, as it’s an area I foresee growing immensely across the next few months.
Social Media: My new bright social media icons are hard to miss at the top, but what I’m even more excited about is the matching share icons at the bottom of each post! Aren’t they darling? They might be favorite thing about the whole space. Now it’s super easy to share anything and everything on CC.
I think that about covers it for now! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. The new set up is so inspiring, I can’t wait to share lots of big beautiful photographs of my food, home, and life. I’ll be back tomorrow with the recipe for the delicious ice cream you see pictured above- have a great night!
