Hi Everyone! Today you will notice that Coffee and Kerfuffles has a whole new look! Late last night wordpress kept throwing errors regarding my old theme, so instead of slogging through and fixing them I decided that it was time to change our look. I will most likely be tweaking the theme as I go (because I’m incredibly picky) so please be patient with me.

Theme Changes

The new theme is the premium version of Conica by Kaira. You can download the free theme in the WordPress theme store, or purchase the full version here. It’s highly customizable, affordable at only $25, and once you get the hang of it it’s very easy to use. If you do decide to use the theme and have any questions, the developers actually do respond quite quickly to troubleshoot any issue you have.

Hosting

If you’re looking for great hosting at affordable prices, I can’t fault One.com and LCN.com. This blog is hosted on One.com, and I’ve never had an issue with them. My yearly subscription fee is £33. I’ve never even had to use the helpdesk! LCN.com is the host for my store Magnolia Furnishings. I pay £17 per quarter for their business hosting, which is an incredible deal compared to Bluehost or Siteground pricing. The LCN helpdesk team is fantastic! They’ve helped me troubleshoot PHP issues, getting my SSL certificate installed and more. They’re a highly knowledgeable team and I’m very happy with their service.

Shop

You will notice in the top navigation bar that there is now a page for “Shop”. In the next few weeks, I will be launching a small amount of things for sale in our C&K store such as snarky coffee mugs, motivational posters, and customizable anniversary prints. That’s just a glimpse into the plans I have for the C&K store! In the future, I will be adding downloads to the shop such as my budgeting course, budgeting binder, my kids chore chart template (that Punky actually loves using!), my cookbook (complete with some of my own family recipes), and more.

Blog Schedule

While I have been away for the last few weeks, I haven’t forgotten about all of you. Summer vacation and weekly occupational therapy appointments for Punky means that I have less time to devote to writing for a little while. Until school starts back up in 3 ½ weeks the post schedule will be pretty sporadic. I’m currently working on my editorial calendar so every post will be written and scheduled months in advance. If there is a specific topic you’d like me to talk about and schedule, please reach out on social media or send me an email at info@coffeeandkerfuffles. If you want to submit a guest post pitch, please send me an email regarding your idea. At the moment I am not able to offer payment for your guest post submissions, but that may change in the future.

Thank you all for being loyal readers while I took a small break. The next post will be all about Twinkl, which is an AMAZING subscription based home education resource website. If you’re looking to homeschool your children, or even just want to supplement their education during school breaks, Twinkl is the site to use!

Until Next time,
