I made a number of changes PACKED with a LOT OF MARKETING stuff in it. Allow me to explain my decisions. Oh yeah, it’s iPad / iPhone and smartphone compatible. There are no parent-child nodes to maintain simplicity.
After studying my Google Analytics, not everyone is like a photographer with 27″ or 30″ cinema displays. Actually, many are laptop sized. Plus, slightly smaller images allow for the sequence of images to flow like a story.
A very good example is a blog theme I designed a while ago for Jose Villa. And he’s still using it, so I’m assuming he likes what I did and more importantly it works for his business. You can get a copy of his theme below.
Plus, it loads faster!
I chose to go with a large typography for clear navigation. I also minimized many functions to narrow choices. Ever heard of “paralysis by analysis”? It means by having too many choices, users cannot decide, therefore won’t decide.
Example – Whenever I dine out with Julie at restaurants with huge menus, I can never decide. I always tell Julie to pick for me as long as I get half of hers.
So rather than inhibiting viewers, let’s help them pick the right choices. Plus it follows the users wherever they are.
Fully-widgetized sidebar so you can add your own things. Plus, there is an area for your own profile to promote transparency.
Post Footers (Calls to Action)
After a viewer lands on your post and looks through all of your lovely images…what is there to do at the bottom? Either comment, scroll all the way back up to find a contact button… or leave. Usually it’s the last. So I added customizable links at the bottom. The marketing strategy behind this is called “call to action.”

Thank you for the support and hope you all like it,
