So I Have a New Home Page

This took me a good three months longer than I had planned, but today I am ready to unveil the new home page for this site.

The new layout deemphasizes the blog and brings more attention to the tech support side of the business. It also does a better job of introducing me and telling my story. The old home page is still around, of course; it has simply been moved to the-digital-reader.com/posts/.

I would appreciate any feedback you could provide.

P.S. I'd like to thank Kandia Johnson, who helped me better understand how to present myself a creative professional (her Masterclass is an amazing value), Michael Carusi, whose site inspired my personal narrative, and Jane Friedman, because (let's be honest) my home page started with essentially the same stock page layout from the same site builder she had used (but then I added a few improvements).

About Nate Hoffelder (9910 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Good luck with the new site layout! One suggestion: maybe put a link to the new blog location in your menu bar?

  2. Looks great, Nate! Very easy to use.

  3. p.s. On the reader resources page, you could add a list of ebook email services, like BookBub, Fussy Librarian, Bargain Booksy, etc.

  4. I like it a lot! It looks especially good on a phone or tablet, which is important in this day and age.

  5. Hope it brings you lots of business. Good luck!

  6. I like you selling yourself at the top. Good idea. Not a fan of the scrolling tile/chicklet menu at the bottom from a user perspective. Either it’s too small, or just doesn’t feel right.

  7. Used to come here for news but, apparently, that’s not what you wanted me to do. So I won’t.

  8. uhm, no
    apparently meant for a phone screen
    back to MobileRead for book related news
    hopefully you still post there as I enjoy your style (particularly if you are being snarky)

    • What do you mean, meant for a mobiel device? The reason i ask is that it sounds like you are seeing the same caching error someone else reported.

      And anyway, did you see that I still have the old home screen over on the posts page?
