Brown Sista: Reloaded

This article has been updated July 12, 2009

Finally… Brown Sista is up and running once again.

First, I want to welcome everyone to the newly designed site. As you guys can see, things look quite a bit different around here and the new layout may take some time getting used to. No longer are we using a blog like design, but rather something called a “Magazine Style” design. What does that mean? I don’t know really; I just thought it was kinda cute- lol.

The new design was created by Vivien of Ewebscapes, and it has been in the works since mid April. Vivienne has done an amazing job and I thank her for steering me towards this design style. I had a great deal of fear, but with her guidance was able to get over it. If you are reading this Vivienne- thank you. I know I wasn’t the easiest person to get along with at times- ok, a few time- alright- most of the time- lol.

There are a few other people I need to thank as well. First, my girl Fashionista 101 (Shantee). She came up with the awesome color scheme, as well as so many other amazing ideas I have implemented on the site. I would truly be lost without her.

Another person I have to thank is Dede of Clutch Magazine- through her I found the amazing font used for the logo. I actually looked for just the right font for hours upon hours over the course of several days and then just by chance, I was browsing Clutch, a site I visit daily, and spotted the font. It was literally right up under my nose. I contacted the sista and she actually told me what font it was and sent it to me. Believe me when I tell you, a lot of ppl wouldn’t have done that- but Dede did. The sista has also been an invaluable source of information over the last few years. Thanks D.

Finally, I want to thank Onetta (A Word For My Sistas) and LJ Knight (Yeah, She Said It). Y’all didn’t do anything- lol. I just love you guys for participating in this site and helping to make it a better place. I did the redesign for you guys as well. Beautiful Brown Sistas deserve a beautiful site to post on. Thank you guys for bringing your talents to this forum. Love you.
