Giving Birth: the New Look of Redhead Writing

New stuff at RedheadWriting.comWell, I’m true to my word! Then again, I am always. Well, most  always. Except when I’m playing poker. It’s a very permissible environment but I won’t go on and on but I will tell you that I once bet my bra in a $5/$10 no limit live game at Commerce Casino in L.A. (I won.)

Welcome to the new look of Redhead Writing! We worked over the weekend and I want to thank a few people for making this happen:

  • Courtney over at JudithShakes Designs for the theme bling
  • Erin Pheil and Josh Petrucci at TimeforCake for the behind-the-scenes work on the move from the dev site and some plugin debugging
  • Cali Harris for her tireless work into wee hours editing posts to get formatting up-to-date

The new site is still a work-in-progress and you can look to see this pubescent gal’s figure fill-out by the beginning of May. Till then, here are some cool new features of Redhead Writing for you to explore:

  • Fan of my weekly Bitch Slap series? You can find the entire collection in its new home on a dedicated tab for easy reference.
  • Have you heard about Redheaded Fury? Well, it’s my personal blog and it’s new home is here on Redhead Writing. Read my ramblings back to 2007 in their very own category and on a special page.
  • Like Porn? You know you do. You can read all of my top-rated/commented on posts on the Porn tab.
  • Do you like my new favicon?
  • Check out the Blogroll. I’m running the Collapsible Blogroll plugin, which worked right out of the box and I totally dig.
  • Related Posts: I’m running the Thumbleated Related Posts plugin, which is admittedly a bitch. While it pulls the first image in any posts as its thumbnail, it won’t pull images with captions. We spent the day yesterday pulling image captions and updating alt text. Entirely sucky and it still seems to be performing questionably.
  • Bookmarks – So Sexy! At the end of each post, you’ll see the Sexy Bookmarks plugin. I like it a lot , Jen-ney (in my best Forrest Gump voice).

So now, if you’re not a subscriber to my RSS feed, use the handy box at the top right of any page on the site. RSS, email – your choice. You can also find quick links to my Twitter and Facebook Fan Page there as well.

As always, thanks for reading – we’ll see you tomorrow!

Hello Erika Napoletano I'm listening to Milt rosenberg on WGN Chicago and reading/perusing your site simultaneously...yes I'm fucking multitalented?  I do like the new format, clean, crisp and sexy like a brand new pair of white silk panties. Nice job as always...keep up the good work you bitch Danny

It's such a change, wow. The site is clean and bright -almost glares at you and slaps you in the face which seems appropos. Amazing to think that now have one stop shopping for porn, fury and bitch slaps. How convenient. CherryPS - I gave you 3 votes on that other thing that I can't remember now what it is but do you need me to vote again (do the rules allow?).

Annnnnnd thank you for making the link be "/top_posts" instead of "/porn" so I can click it at work and not worry!

Love it. I love any site that gives porn and bitch slaps, clearly I'm not the only one. Is it possible I have finally found my place in the world? ;)

Congratulations on the triumphant evolution of snark, Ms. Napoletano. My personal favorite is the Favicon - after perusing the splendor of Redhead Ranting discovering "the digit" was the cherry on the...cake.

I like the new look overall. Reminds me of a notebook kind of. The referrer thing on top is interesting. I was able to confuse it though :). Also looks good on an iPad.

Always start with Porn...follow it up with a Bitch Slap or two with some Redheaded Fury mixed in ;-)

Porn, bitch slaps and fury all in one place. I don't even know where to start. Ok, probably with the porn :) I like the new design!

So far, so good. But the vertical text on the tabs is going to drive me batty, for two reasons:1) The Contact tab isn't visible at my normal browser size.2) The White-text-on-bright-color-tabs is harder to read.Might I suggest some icons in addition to the text, that would contrast better with the tab images?I'm wondering if the new WP 3.0 native menu options will make it easier to do what your theme does with vertical integration. (Ooh, that even sounded dirty.)

Thanks, Michael! What's the royalty schedule like on "snarketing?" Might have to steal that ASAP.

One-stop snarketing! Love the new look! Well worth the wait.
