So many updates! Twenty Years Hence 3.0 has arrived!
After three and a half years of running this site (wow!) we decided it was time for an update. In truth, we decided it was time for an update about a year ago, but between travel and work things sort of… fell through the cracks. As many of you may know (if we’ve been doing our job right) we’ve been growing our web design and digital marketing business and as our portfolio of clients grew along with our site’s content (and potential content) we knew we needed a better portal to the endeavors we’ve been pouring our hearts into.
We had some work to do.
First and foremost, our previous theme was a hot mess on mobile. Beyond that, the amount of content we have has grown exponentially since the debut of our last theme, and the seams were starting to creak with the effort of containing it. We saw that it just wasn’t very easy to find our older content, nor was it easy to find our other resources. So, to that end, we finally updated our look and added a ton of new content while we were at it. This new framework is custom-built by us, from the ground up, and gives us more flexibility by an order of magnitude. We know our site will continue to grow, and that we’ll keep adding new features and content, and this new platform will make it so much easier for our readers to find it all.
So, what all have we done?
So many photos.
This is a huge one. We’ve shot well over 70,000 photos since we’ve been traveling and thus far only a tiny fraction of them have made it to the site. We’ve been back on this side of the world for over a year now (wow again!) and we’ve still barely scratched the surface when it comes to writing about our nearly two years in Asia. So, while we play catch-up with all of our long-overdue posts, you can sift through our photos from the last three years and get a feel for what’s coming. We’ve uploaded at least a thousand photos spanning nearly every location we’ve visited, with many, many more to come. Check back often, as the galleries will be constantly expanding and updating.See our photos here »
So many destinations.
While we haven’t written about everything, we’ve certainly logged it in one capacity or another. If you want a visual representation of where we’ve been, along with the relevant content associated with each place, check out our new interactive map on our destinations page. Click a pin to find out more about that destination.
Also, we’ve updated our Lodgings by Country page with a new, more user-friendly look. It’s a growing list that will eventually contain a basic guide to everywhere we stayed while abroad (it has quite a few places already!).Our interactive map » Lodging by country »
So much work.
We’ve been busy in the last year. Not only have we been cooking up this little gem, but we’ve been rapidly building our online business as well. Now if you’re in the market for a website, graphic design, freelance writing, or Google AdWords online marketing services you can learn all about how we do what we do right here on this website. You can also see a lot of our most recent work (with more coming soon!) to get a feel for what we have done for our other clients.Our work » Design Services »
So much everything.
We’ve revamped our homepage and menu to provide more access to everything we offer. It’s easier to find our newer and older posts and we’ve added some fun categories to inspire new and old readers alike. Also, the new theme is completely mobile responsive, so we say to you, mobile (and tablet… phablet?) users: browse away!
We just couldn’t be more excited about all of this, and we hope you love it.
Since our site is so big now and is always a work in progress, if you find anything that seems out of place, or doesn’t work, don’t hesitate to let us know!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and read our stories, after all, you’re why we do all this in the first place!
