An Exciting Site Update! (and Weekend Notes)

By Camille Styles

Happy weekend, y’all! I’m really excited to share a few tech updates we just launched on the site — mostly subtle changes to improve the overall experience, but there’s one that I wanted to call out since it’s in direct response to reader requests we’ve been getting over the last several months. Our slideshow format has historically been the best way for us to present longer, richer stories like our Entertaining With series or Cream of the Crop column, but we’ve received feedback that the slides can take too long to click through, especially on mobile. SO, we’ve been busily working on a brand new slideshow format that displays the same amount of beautiful images and descriptive copy in a SCROLL format! My hope is that it’ll allow you to digest the content more quickly so you can read and enjoy more stories from start to finish. Check out this new story or this one and let me know what you think of the design in the comments. Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, and check out my favorite links from around the web this week. xo
