Haven’t done one of these in quite awhile, but I realized that building greater functionality into my site scarcely matters if you don’t know about it. So, today I want to let you know about several updates I’ve made to stylewise-blog.com, as well as where I’m headed with features this fall and winter.
I have done a lot of backend work to properly tag posts so that they’re searchable by topic. You’ll notice that each Menu heading now includes several specific topics under its dropdown menu (it looks different in Mobile, but is still just as accessible). Now you can find specific things you’re looking for more readily.
Updated Digital Shop Page
My Guides to Ethical Blogging and Ethical Affiliate Networks are available for purchase directly through this site. Click here to access the Digital Shop (it’s also under the Resources header in my Menu).
You can also purchase my guide on Etsy.
Sustainable Brand Directory
I am in the process of transitioning my shopping directory to this page. You can see items by category, or scroll through all items. (This is also accessible under the Shopping header in my Menu.)
Updated Media Kit
While I have chosen to prioritize an affiliate and donor-based model, I will be putting together seasonal guides and at least one Holiday Gift Guide this year, which will likely be at least partially sponsored. Brands and other interested parties can view my Media Kit here. (You can also access it under the About header in my Menu.)
You probably noticed that I changed my blog title to Leah Wise a little over a month ago. While I don’t plan on changing my url, I decided that using my name better reflected the breadth of topics I cover, and makes me feel less beholden to fitting into the ethical blogger mold.
While I plan to continue to share style content – and would actually like to increase and improve personal style posts – I am aware that my interests are expanding and that many of you follow this blog for its longer form content.
That’s all I have to report right now. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!
