Pinteste Round-up: New Design

8 Posted by - May 14, 2013 - Announcements, Pinteste Round-ups

If you’ve noticed, this place has gotten a little bit of a facelift! (Those of you who read via RSS and email, do me a solid and come visit.) I haven’t had a major redesign here since I launched back in December 2011, so it was probably about time, right? I really hope you like the new look and that it makes things easier for you. Those of you who read on mobile, the idea is to make it a lot nicer experience for you. We’re still working out a few little bugs, so feel free to email me if you see anything that’s not working quite right. Also, feel free to shower me with compliments about how beautiful the new design is.

The other part of the redesign is the slightly shifted tagline. I know some of you are going to be upset about that and start screaming, “SELL OUT!” Well, I’ll tell you, in this case, it’s literally true. I am selling out because I was losing out on real ad revenue due to my f-bomb tagline. It’s pretty easy to say, “Fuck The Man!” and stuff when blogging isn’t your career, but this is my sole income, so I had to put on my big girl panties and make an adult decision to not let go of ad revenue just because I wanted to say “fuck” in the tagline. Fear not, though. The content of the blog is not changing. We’ll not be losing our f-bombs and penis jokes so easily.

So, now that all that’s out of the way, let’s see some of your brilliance from the comments, shall we?

Turns out I didn’t get judged for eating four extra Saltines on the 3-day military diet. Most of you concurred that it is dumb.

Anna β€’ I decided one time to do this and went out and bought all of the food for it. Then I remembered that I’m sexy as hell and have a really good diet already and HATE cottage cheese and grapefruit so that garbage rotten in the fridge when I shook my ass in front of a mirror and smiled. So my experience with the 3 day military diet was actually really pleasant.

Next time, I’ll just do that.

Goober β€’ Hahaha MRE’s just for shits and giggles… one problem with that phrase… MRE’s give you the opposite of shits and you aren’t gonna be giggling much when you’ve been on the toilet for a half hour and can’t seem to remember why you ate that MRE. πŸ™‚Β Also, when I was in the military we ate close to 3000 or more calories a day during basic training. And I lost tons of weight. It was because we worked our butts off training around 8-9 hours or more a day!

I forgot to relate my dieting poop story in the post, but I will tell you that the 3-day diet isn’t much for the shits and giggles either. I pretty much didn’t poop for 3 days.

I’m sorry it took me so long to do my latest cocknails post. But you guys didn’t mind, right?

Kelly724 β€’ A flask, lube, and some scary looking alien jizz stuck to you when you pulled out. Worth the wait.

And I told you that even though 2-ingredient cookies aren’t the worst thing ever, they taste… healthy.

Jodee Rose β€’ Healthy is the worst flavor.

Well, it ain’t the best, for sure.

Katherine Horejsi β€’ I love these cookies, my favourite add-ins are butter, brown sugar, and a little corn syrup…and i leave out the banana. Flapjack anyone? πŸ˜‰

In my failed glass cutting video, I did show you a neat device with which to remove your nail polish…

Llama spit β€’ I tried taking off my nail polish in the cat anus thing. It didn’t work and now my cat is PISSED!

Whoops.

Also, this:

Mary Elizabeth HardinΒ β€’Β I made you a gif so you can forever see the burn πŸ™‚

I’ve been gif’d!

And I love that you guys are artistically texting stuff up.

Piggie4 β€’ Nuf’ Said

anus

Here’s another one from the tortilla post.

Breenah β€’ You always inspire me so much.

I love you guys.

    Love the re-design! I’d like your curly wurly background for curtains in my living room, can you sort that out for me please? Thanks x

  • Julie Guyon May 14, 2013 - 12:41 pm Reply

    I like the new design too! I noticed the change on the tagline and thought “oh fuck! things are getting serious now!” But as long as you don’t change the rest, that’s fine! x

      Same! I thought oh geez, no more fucks or penises. And then I read that last sentence out loud to myself and laughed, and laughed.
      On the one hand, I’m a hippie so Damn The Man. On the other hand, well, a girl’s gotta eat, and there’s a time and place for fucks. And then I laughed again.

    The new design is lovely and YAY I made a round up… but er.. it is two Es in my name, not IE. =S

      Oops, sorry about that! Fixed it! My copy & paste skills are a fail. πŸ˜‰

        It’s okay, I partially blame the mix up on my mom for screwing with the spelling of my name.

    Love the redesign!

    I like that your background kind of looks like flowers and leaves and also kind of looks like tongues.

    Love the new design!! And I like that now your homepage kind of looks like Pinterest too. But a bizzaro Pinterest with much more melted plastic and penis jokes. Ooh! You should melt a plastic penis. You + plastic penis + fire would be awesome!

  • Keri’n On May 14, 2013 - 2:45 pm Reply

    Love it!! Girly lookin’ with subtle fucks and cocks and liquor! WINNER!

  • Annoying_Pedant May 14, 2013 - 4:23 pm Reply

    What is the easiest way to determine which entry is most recent? I am having trouble telling in the redesign (which is otherwise really cute).

    • Pintester May 14, 2013 - 4:26 pm Reply

      If you’re on the front page, Make sure Show All and Latest are selected from the menu and it’ll be the top left one. Also, the dates are listed at the bottom of each square.

    • TheSwede May 14, 2013 - 4:53 pm Reply

      While I do like the new design I too have issues with finding the newest entry and it took me quite some time to figure it out.
      I’m sure I’ll get used to it after a while but to me it makes more sense to highlight it at the top somehow instead of in a menu with all the other ones.

  • Amanda May 14, 2013 - 5:33 pm Reply

    I’m having a hard time with all the ads. One bar ad doesn’t allow me to see the menu for seeing the categories for the latest stuff. One ad floats and I can click the X but the large advertised post covers most of the page for me. This is on iPad. I couldn’t even see this post, just the text for it that happened to come out under the large advertised posts. It seems very messy and disorganized to me. I will probably just check back for posts less because its too much of a hassle trying to click the right thing. No big.

      Hang with me, Amanda. The mobile stuff is still getting worked out a little bit. It should improve greatly really soon!

        I’m hanging! (Insert gross penis/testicle joke here)

    Love the new design. In my heart you’ll always be “Fucking up Pinterest pins so you don’t have to”!

  • kerrilbennett May 14, 2013 - 8:31 pm Reply

    Can we call ourselves “Pintestes” and have badges with penises? My craft skills aren’t awesome, but I’m pretty sure I can accomplish this….

    • Heather May 15, 2013 - 1:30 pm Reply

      I’m down!

  • S.E. May 14, 2013 - 10:54 pm Reply

    Love the new design! Especially since I can now see adds for things such as “Twink Underwear.” How did I survive without Twink Underwear for so much of my life?

    Your email feed came through today with just “WHAT” – and the link went to 404 Not Found. I was hoping for at least a WTF or something.

      Yeah, sorry about that. Phantom glitch.

    New things frighten and confuse me…

  • Kelly724 May 16, 2013 - 12:39 pm Reply

    The new design is fancy as hell. Now I can get my fix of f bombs and penis jokes and look like a fuckin classy bitch.

  • Fluffynutterbutt May 16, 2013 - 1:32 pm Reply

    New design is working out on iPhone!! And the tag line still works, we all know what you really mean πŸ˜‰

    Love the design! It’s really pretty.

    Your new site is not very mobile friendly πŸ™ it is very frustrating to browse on my phone, will probably not be keeping as much now.

  • Joanna Likness Pendleton May 17, 2013 - 6:19 pm Reply

    I really like the new design! It works fine on my phone once it all loads up. Also, I think your tagline is fine, and you may increase your readership as well. Some of us are just closet cussers and prefer to read it in a post over a tagline. πŸ˜‰

  • Art is Therapy May 18, 2013 - 10:55 am Reply

    I love the new design and am in love with your posts. I have never been into blogs until I read yours’. Keep up the fantastically crass work!

  • Renlish May 19, 2013 - 8:20 am Reply

    Not *really* a fan of the new design… I like order. This is not ordered. My brain can’t cope! WHAAA! /whine

    That being said.. the cat anus thing. I cannot stop watching that video for the sound effect. Sheer brilliance.

  • Llama spit May 20, 2013 - 9:38 pm Reply

    FUCK YEAH! I made it to the roundup! Also, viewing the blog on my phone made me laugh. It loads normal page view and then BAM! Big ass Sonja head grinning at me and filling up my screen! (Could just be my phone, as it’s kind of messed up.) It’s fun and creepy at the same time.

  • veggiecrocker August 6, 2013 - 5:18 am Reply

    Ok, I forgive you for selling out. I am a firm believer in self-preservation. That said, the ads are… bizarre. I will still read, though. ‘Cause I heart you.
