Unless you are brand new here at LiP, I am sure you immediately noticed that LiP looks different than it did before! Yep, I’ve updated the looks of the site again. It is something that I do once per year, on average. I don’t like to change the look too often, but I find once per year (or so) is a perfect interval! It keeps things different, without shaking things up too often.
Yes, it’s a new look, but it’s a little more than that too. And, the other thing is… new look, but still the same great content that you have come to expect on LiP! Interesting articles, informative and entertaining. At least that is the way I hope you feel about LiP, and I hope you keep coming back for more.
So, what is new other than the look?
Well, the biggest “new” thing is that LiP is now fully compatible with your mobile devices. So, whether you are going to view on a Tablet, like an iPad or an Android tablet, or if you want to read LiP on your Mobile Phone, the site should look great, no matter how big or small your screen is. The site will automatically adapt itself to fit nicely on the screen of any device that you use to browse it. In the past, this was not the case, but I figured that with Smartphones quickly becoming a standard, it’s time to make LiP a little more adaptable. And, this does not mean that the site just switches over to a plain jane “mobile theme” that is just black and white. No, you get the whole experience, just in a different screen size. The images are still there, and the text is large enough to read even on your cellphone.
Other than the mobile adaptability, the other changes to the site this year are just cosmetic. Since I am pretty happy with the features of the site, I did not feel a need to really do anything feature-wise, except to add the mobile capability.
So, welcome to the new LiP. This is version 6.0 of the site, and the site is just a bit over 6 years old now, makes sense, right? The new looks are a little more basic this year, and I wanted to go back to basics. But, even though it is basic, I still feel that the site looks good. I hope you think so too!
Thank you for your being a regular LiP reader and participant! I really appreciate all of my friends and readers here on LiP!
