I’m beyond excited to announce the launch of a new website for Diary of a Bored Housewife! Here’s a quick look at the process and an overview of this new design for the lifestyle blogger, Michele.

A little about the client and project

Michele is a Cleveland-based empty nester with a little extra time on her hands now that her kids have all grown up and left home. What’s a bored housewife to do? Well, if you’re like Michele and you have a terrific fashion sense, zest for travel, and a lot of wit…you start a lifestyle blog!

I worked closely with Michele to choose the perfect WordPress theme for her site, then I went through a few rounds of customizations to help get it looking just as she hoped it would. We also added in a few key functionalities to help keep her audience engaged: email opt-in and auto post notifications through MailChimp integration, an Instagram feed, and a latest post slider on the homepage. The goal of this site was to provide Michele with a beautiful platform for sharing this new phase of her life with the world.

Kind words from Michele

“Blaz Design was recommended to me by another blogger and they were right, as working with Shannon was the smartest decision I could make as I started my blog. Shannon was patient, knowledgeable, and so easy to work with. I love the final product and it’s a really comforting feeling knowing I can contact Blaz Design should I have any questions along the way. Thank you!”
