Thanks for all the kind words on the new layout. When Kaye suggested this new layout to make the pictures we've been working so hard on pop, I knew it was the way to go. It feels like the grown up version of Mattieologie. The grown up version who all of a sudden got a better and up to date wardrobe.
It's funny because some of my friends really weren't into the layout at first and if we're being honest here, I'm sure some of you are still getting used it (and aren't craaaaazy about it). I saw a small surge in my blog traffic within the last week and it's no coincidence that it happened after the new layout premiered.
As I get older, I'm starting to realize that I'm not really focused on being liked. My objective in my work (and life) isn't approval, but results.
It's just better that way.
