About Our Redesign

construction_signphoto by meddygarnet

As you probably noticed, EMandLO.com just got a bit of a face-lift. (We’re hoping the work is more Demi Moore than Joan Rivers.) We know change is hard, but if you give it a chance, we think you’ll find that it’s easier to find the stuff you like with this new format. We produce so much content every week and before it was disappearing so fast! This way, everything’s categorized — if you like Wise Guys, there are the last four entries right on the homepage; if you like our advice, same deal; if you like confessions and polls and comments of the week, there they are in the Confessions section. Plus, a nifty animated feature scrolls through all the best recent content.

You probably also noticed our new toys section — we’ve partnered with our favorite sex toy store, GoodVibes.com, to give you easy access to some of the toys we think are the best out there. Let us know if you’ve got a favorite toy you’d like to see featured. And because we gots bills to pay, we’re also looking for advertisers, so please spread the word! Our rates are ridiculously reasonable, and our readers — er, that’d be you — are quite the catch. Here’s an incentive: If you introduce us to an advertiser and it leads to a campaign on our site, we’ll send you a free signed copy of one of our books. You’ll also be helping to make sure that this site sticks around, because we can’t keep doing it for free forever.

Stay tuned for a few more new features, including a more vibrant and user-friendly “Latest” section right on the homepage. If you have any constructive criticism or suggestions for how we could improve the site, please feel free to leave your comments below, or email us directly using our contact form. But if you’re just going to poopoo the site because you liked the old version better, please save your breath and simply bookmark “The Latest” page — it’s basically a replica of our old homepage, allowing you to quickly browse the first paragraph of the ten most recent posts and click back through the archives chronologically.

Finally, we’d like to give a million thank yous to the designers, Rob Tourtelot and Joey Cavella, who also happen to be our respective other-other halves. (If you’ve got a site that needs “work,” you should hire them!)

I like the new layout although I find the colours a bit cold. Also, wasn’t there a search functionality before? I would like to be able to look up an article that I remember reading here some 5-6 weeks ago. But still, good job!

It took me a few days to get used to the new design, but now I love it! I especially love the “recent comments” section, so I can see at a glance what people are commenting about. Good job, ladies. Keep up the good work!

Tell the nice web-lackey who’s doing the grunt work that the site now loads properly on my machine. The letters section has the article title nice and indeed quite elegantly separated from the letter itself. Looks real good. Congratulations. Now, if only someone could do quite as good a job on my love life….
