Announcing the Re-launch of Creatively Driven: A New Blog Design

It’s here!

My new blog design is finally launched. I’m so excited to share with you the new and improved creatively driven. It has been a long wait, (about 9 months) but my “baby” is finally out in the world. I want to thank my developer, Zoey Rooney, who did an awesome job making my dream site come to life.

What prompted the change?

Over the past three year’s I have naturally grown from one blog to the next. It started with my first blog: LorettaMay Design Blog, a wordpress.com site, to the first version of Creatively Driven, all the way to now (3.0).

For version one and two of creatively driven I was using a pre-made theme named Harpoon. It served it’s purpose but I wasn’t entirely happy with it.

There were user experience problems, such as not having the ability to click on the image of the post to get to the full post. Also I couldn’t add a subscribe form or images in the sidebar.

So I made the decision after I re-designed my freelance site to create a space for me to share what i’ve learned, experiment and practice new mediums.

I want my blog to be the destination for creatives who seek information on how to start their freelance business, how to stay inspired and keep a healthy work/life balance.

I hope you enjoy the new design. I feel theres room to grow in this space and make it my own.

If you’re interested in starting/rebranding a blog or a website and are not sure where to begin, you’re in luck! I’m starting an online course teaching you the art of brand styling for the web.

  • Through this class you will learn about the process of creating a unique brand point of view that will carry through to your website.
  • I will teach you how to mood board out your ideas with my super simple photoshop templates.
  • I will teach you how to plan out your site’s core functionalities and purpose based off of your business goals.

My hope is that I help you avoid some of the mistakes I made when designing my two sites. I wasted so much time going back and forth, obsessing over the details on things that truly could have been avoided if I had just followed the right process. That process is what this class will give to you.

If you’re interested, please sign up for exclusive tips and updates leading up until the class becomes available.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back. bdgddbggebed
