Can You Please Share Behind-The-Scenes Of DommiesBlessed?


I think you will find this part of our journey interesting if you are a blogger or have hopes of becoming a blogger and are interested in what it takes.

Today, I start with the evolution of our home page.

April 2017

This is my first homepage. At this point, I didn't even have a logo.

September 2017

Now I have a logo and a niche, Womynhood. Motherhood. Wifedom.

December 2017

New tagline, "Let's Build Strong Families Together."

January 2018

Looks like I ...

January 2018

I narrowed down my niche even more to, Breastfeeding. Hair. Homeschool. Previously, these were all under the motherhood tab.

It looks like I also ...

  • minimized the site design so that visitors knew exactly what DommiesBlessed was about

  • added a pink "Learn More" button

  • added a donation button

  • added all my social media accounts

What you can't see, is that I also ...

  • added online support through coaching, as well as

  • links to tools and resources

March 2018

I often added features for a better user experience. For example, if I noticed something helpful on another site, I would add it to mine.

Or if there was a feature I wish they had on another site, I would again, add it to mine.

This month I added...

  • log in

  • search

  • shop

  • and the tagline, "raising our queens"

May 2018

By our 13th month, I felt I had a good handle on website design. So I created another website for myself, and one for my husband [both not shown].

For DommiesBlessed I...

  • really concentrated on user experience, evident of the "Can We Help You Find Something" search field

  • updated my bio and pic

  • defined breastfeeding, hair, and homeschool

  • put as much information as possible on the front page including multiple blog posts

August 2018

I spent even more hours, trying to make my site as productive and clear as possible.

  • Here I added the call to action, "subscribe," in my header.

  • I also added informative and beautifully designed downloads, which I called lovegraphics.

  • And some quick buttons, so that it would be easier to navigate the site.

April 2019

  • I added "set goals" to the call-to-action in our header

  • I added quick buttons, so visitors could call/email from the front page

  • I increased our download stash to 50

  • I published our first ebook

  • and optimized our website footer

January 2020

Now, I'm back to the simplest bare-minimum site. I'm happy with it because it loads faster and is minimalistic.

What Have You Learned From Updating Your Home Page So Many Time?

It was very time-consuming, but also very fun. It taught me a bunch of new concepts like registering a trademark, affiliate marketing, and call-to-actions.

In the process, I've also discovered that less is more. And diving deep into a topic is better than covering a wide range of topics.

I really hope this was helpful. Want behind-the-blog insights? Grow with me here. Need to schedule a one-on-one? Use code: HEART2HEART.
