New Look for Site Using WordPress Static Front Page

I’m pleased to have had some positive comments about the latest new look for this site. I’m hoping the new layout and some changes I’ve made to the content will help me communicate more effectively in terms of my business focus and the services I offer.

Des Walsh dot Com web siteThe most fundamental change has been to move from the “blog-as-site” model to having a static front page, with the blog as part of the overall site rather than as the front page. This is technically easy to achieve in WordPress (although getting everything to work as I wished, after making that change, presented a few challenges).

I’ve also switched to using the iThemes Builder child theme Ionic Sky, with some layout and style variations which are not too difficult to achieve, even for a non-techie like me, using the iThemes variable layouts and style functions.

My main aim in all of this has been to achieve a clearer presentation of the main services I offer, under the two headings of social media strategy and business coaching.

The new dropdown sub-menu in the navigation bar above will hopefully help with navigating the site.

I would definitely appreciate any feedback on the site re-structure.
