It's been more than three and a half years since I launched Tea-Guy. Here we are, a couple hundred tea reviews, a dozen or so accessory reviews, several book reviews and three World Tea Expo recaps later.
It's time to step things up a bit. My commitment to you may seem to have waned with less frequent posts. Let me assure you, this is not the case. If anything it pains me to not have had the opportunity to engage with you as I would have liked.
I started Tea-Guy as an experiment. An expedition of discovery looking to find valuable business opportunities in the tea industry and chances to mix and mingle with my fellow tea lovers. I have done this. I've become addicted to it!
I've received praise for my content and writing style. I've received praise for my methodology when reviewing teas. I've even received praise for some of my tea travels reviews (which I love to do by the way.) Just about the only thing I haven't received some level of acclaim for is the design of the blog itself.
But today is a new day. This week is a new week. The world we live in won't stop or slow down, it moves faster every day, and within it we all individually can take an opportunity to reflect. Some of us use tea as our excuse to do just that.
The start of next week marks the beginning of a new era with Tea-Guy. A completely new design with more readable layout and design and more modern amenities will welcome you. I couldn't be more pleased with the design and implementation put together by my team of tea drinking monkeys.
This redesign comes in no small part by the constant lack of traffic to deeper areas of the site. I've written articles on a myriad of topics which simply haven't been viewed by you. I'm not sure if this is more because of the theme or because I haven't chosen to highlight it at times. But I refuse to believe those articles are of no interest to you as readers.
When the changes go live next week, please take the opportunity to critique the design and let me know how you feel about it and what your thoughts and recommendations are. We've worked hard to improve your experience, and I'd really like to focus on that.
