YA Midnight Reads Revamp FP

Hello hello hello! Remember us? Those three lunatics who are infatuated with books? Yeah, we’re back. AND LOOK AT THE PRETTY DESIGN WE BROUGHT BACK WITH US.

And of course, it could have only been designed and coded with the help of the Great and Powerful Mitchii. So girl, THANK YOU SO MUCH for dealing with all my emails and questions and everything in general. You rock. <33 If anyone is considering a new look for their blog, I recommend you check out Mitchii’s work because she can make some real magic happen.

The basic idea was to keep the colour scheme (that is, blue and purple) but have a much more professional, clean and simple look. Personally, I’m absolutely IN LOVE with the new design and I love the girl and moon vector which reminds me of the Dreamworks logo which just works nicely. (Dreams – Sleep – Midnight – YA Midnight Reads, anyone?) I hope you all love it as much as I do 😀

Aside from the new look, there are some other changes that are happening to this blog:

  • Midnight Madness Newsletter, our weekly wrap-up feature, is now a bi-monthly thing. This is simply because us three aren’t having as much time each week to give you a proper and thorough wrap-up and well, quality over quantity!
  • We have a new feature! Midnight Blogging 101 is a new feature that will commence soon on the blog. Basically, this is where we’ll be posting blog tips and tricks on all kinds of things to help you guys out! If you want us to answer YOUR question in one of our upcoming posts, feel free to email us at yamidnightreads(at)gmail(dot)com
  • We are going to be posting more consistently. While it’s pretty much impossible for us to post more, we do plan to post at a more consistent rate so that we aren’t spamming you one week and giving you total radio silence the next. Time to crack down on the scheduling.
  • I cleared out all our Categories. I remember reading a post about it on Ashley @ Nose Graze‘s site once upon a time and now I finally acted on it and now the categories are so clean and simple!
  • There will be more mini review posts. If you remember, before I went to America, I had a post which contained a bunch of mini reviews in one post. You’ll be seeing those sort of posts more often, because they’re surprisingly more popular and they help us keep that review pile under our feet.

Now, we’re going to try something new this time. I’ve been wanting to do this for ages but haven’t found the right opportunity to post it, so why not now, since we got a new design and all?

In short, we made a rather quick survey for you guys to fill out. It’s basically just for us to know how you honestly feel about YMR, so we can move to improve and maybe change the blog for the better. It’s completely anonymous so go ahead, and give us your honest opinion! It only takes a few moments 😉 If you cannot view it below, please click here to view it in another tab.

Along with this survey, we also have a giveaway to celebrate the occasion!

    • Larissa says:

      AWWW YAY! SO GLAD YOU LOVE IT. And I agree, moon girl is awesome ~~~

      You also raise a good point about our last layout, I felt that was a bit of an issue too. Least it’s fixed now!

      Thank you girl! I think the banner is honestly my favorite part of the redesign personally (: I think Mitchii deserves so much credit for her talent.

  27. Joana Aleixo says:

    Awww I really like the look!! I also really like the look on the survey!! I love the colors and it looks all so dreamy. :3

  28. I LOVE. It is so very pretty, I like the way you have brought “Midnight” into it! I have been mad at myself for using the term midnight because I felt like I had to have a “darker” theme, but you have obviously proven me wrong- yours is bright, and beautiful and still very much “midnight”.

    I should clean out my categories too! Thanks for the reminder 😉 Also, I am excited about your new blogging feature!! And I am with you- mini reviews are kind of fabulous. I have done them a few times now and I really quite enjoy them! Great job, ladies 🙂
    Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight recently posted…This Week At Midnight (58)My Profile

    • Larissa says:

      Awww thank you! I think we all wanted to retain our midnight theme but also go a more simplistic and neat route. “Midnight” can be a bit limiting at first but once you really think about it there’s so many ways you can take it.

      Haha your welcome [; Mini reviews are the perfect solution for when you don’t have a lot of things to say on a book but still want to review it.

  29. OH MY GOD IT’S AWESOME GUYS!!! 😀

  30. I am very much IN LOVE with your new look. It’s so clean, so fresh and so now you know? It’s exactly the kind of design that balances cute and smart and I like it. There’s a lot of new blog designs happening at the moment, we’ve got one new ourselves (created by me!) and it’s such an exciting moment, so I’m pleased you girls are excited!<3

    • Larissa says:

      <33 Glad you love it! I agree that it feels a lot more neat and simplistic. Ooooo and smart too, that's a good way to describe it. And girl, you honestly deserve such respect for creating your own design- I honestly wouldn't know where to begin if I had to do that.

  31. OKAY FIRST UP THE NEW LOOK IS STUNNING AND I LOVE IT AND IT IS MY FAVOURITE YET. OMG!! YOU GUYS HAVE OUTDONE YOURSELVES. Secondly: I’ve missed you all!! Thirdly, you’re like one of my top favourite blogs of eeeeever, so duh I love everything you post. And I did the survey and as much as it PAINED me, I clicked all the truthful options instead of being horribly sarcastic. I totally deserve an award. Or a cake. Or something. Buuuuut AHHH IT’S GLORIOUS OKAY. YES. *calms self*

  37. Diamond says:

    YAY! CONGRATULATIONS GIRLS I LOVE THIS NEW DESIGN.
    It’s clean, simple, professional, yet fits. Perfecto. I’ll definitely consider your designer when I change my blog design (which will be this year!) Do you feel like she really took your direction or you just gave her some ideas and she ran with it and got it right? Just curious I know different designers work differently, and I’m in research mode!
    I can’t wait to see the upcoming changes. I’m a fan of the mini reviews. Like I said in my survey, I think that it’s great for those of us who maybe don’t love contemporary books too much, but can’t wait to read your fantasy and dystopian, etc books 😉 Then there’s a little of each and I’d check out every one. Also I love giveaway posts with content like discussions or just random whatever.
    If you hosted a read at hon or ANYTHING I would be there. No joke. I’m IN. <3

      Thank you <33

      I agree that it does take the blog in a new direction, but still holds onto our original "midnight" theme. I would definitely recommend Mitchii as a blog designer, I could literally stare at her designs all day. We definitely did have input with the design, but she also had some brilliant ones herself.

      Ooooo. I now know which survey answers are yours hehe [; You really did raise a good point about a lot of our reads being contemporary! I agree that mini reviews are great, though personally I have a tendency to write essays ooops.

      <333 that definitely makes me want to do a read a thon stat

  39. ERMAGERD your new layout is sooooo stunning! I love that you kept with the colour scheme but cleaned it up a little. Absolutely love it girls!

    I’m so excited for what you all have in store. I think the bi-monthly wrap up is a good idea – I’ve started doing monthly instead because I just can’t find the time anymore. Blogging has gone on the back burner because of work 🙁

    Can’t wait to see what else you all have in stall for us. Woop woop! xx

      Yeah, we’re all so busy with our lives that bi-monthly is the way to go. Also, it makes it so you have more interesting things to say LOL. Like in weekly ones it was sometimes hard for me to think of anything to say. I feel you on the pressures of work though /:

      Wooooo! Can’t wait for you to see what we got planned

    The new blog design looks wonderful! It’s so nice and clean, and very easy to read (I’m an old person, I like things I can see without having to squint – or maybe I should just remember to put my glasses on more often idk).

    Ooh, I do like the new design! Definitely something to celebrate- it’s always fun and nice, having a new theme and clearing up the blog, isn’t it? It must be something that happens around this time of year, because I’ve noted quite a few bloggers (myself included) doing design revamps, which is pretty neat.
    I enjoyed your mini review selection, though I like the big reviews, too, so I’ll look forward to a bit of both (mini reviews are great for decreasing a review pile, aren’t they?!), and already I’m sure I’m going to have fun with your survey.
    Happy reading! Xx

Lol don't worry about big reviews, you'll still get plenty from me. Omg, I swear I'm incapable of not writing an essay for a review.

      Thank you <33

  44. HOLY MACAROONS OMG!!!!! This is so beautiful. I cannot even. I am in lost of words. Ahh….eh….. OMG. Mitchii can never go wrong! I’m so excited for the things you prepared for this blog. Really looking forward from you girls 😉

      Right? Mitchii never disappoints, all her designs are amazing and I am so happy with the design as well.

      I cannot wait to share all the posts with you, girl 🙂

  45. I love your new design so much. It’s so simple, yet that’s what makes it beautiful. I also love how relaxing and gorgeous the color scheme is. I should probably work on posting more consistently, as I haven’t been doing much of that lately. Best of luck on all of your blog changes!

    I’m finally on the PC so now I can leave a comment. The blog looks absolutely spectacular, simply the most stunning book blog I’ve ever seen. My goodness, I could sit on your home page all day and just marvel at how utterly gorgeous it is! <3

    I did the survey. I'm a big fan of surveys and although it's anonymous, I'd love to see more random postings (like your fangirl one) and discussions between you all. You guys have an incredibly dynamic. I wouldn't worry about keeping to a regular posting schedule, you're all at school and need to have social lives as well. Even a post per week is enough, I'd hate to think you guys are putting aside studying just to blog. We'll all still be here. I might just sit here and wait for you. It's so lovely and calming.

    I love mini reviews, because I get the overall feel for the book, but because they’re mini there are more books to read thoughts on (I don’t actually know if that made a lot of sense but the point was: hurrah for mini reviews!).

    Midnight Blogging 101 sounds super awesome, and I cannot wait to read the posts you guys have in store!

    *still drooling over the design*

  57. OKAY I AM SO TERRIBLY SORRY THAT THIS COMMENT IS CENTURIES LATE, BUT, HAPPY DANCE, THE NEW LOOK IS AMAZING, YOU GUYS!!! (As expected of Mitchii — she has design skills that are basically goddess-like.) Yup, I love how fitting the logo is, and you’re right, it does remind me of Dreamworks! 😀 And also, the color scheme is lovelyyyy. I love the waves in the footer!

    I know the survey is anonymous, but I’m pretty sure you can tell which entry was mine, LOL. I don’t really mind what you guys post, because I know I’ll love reading them. Even your reviews which can be so hilarious sometimes! So I hope YA Midnight Reads continues to be the fun and snazzy blog with its witty and perfect blog — now with a brilliant design to match! <3

    Books are always my escape root from school,study, the real world. Things in books are always so much better! Hardcover makes stuff extra special! I like what you did with the blog!

    Loving the new professional look to the blog and yes, the newsletter is better bi-monthly. Quality over quantity. Also, I’ve subscribed via niacarnelio@yahoo.in, I ended up pressing enter before I’d typed the whole thing. Whoops! 😛
