A New Look

yellow-maple-leaf-2Nothing beats the New Year than a new look!  If you’ve been a long-time reader of The Outlier Model, then you’ll certainly notice the new look and branding. I hope you like it! ;)

Over their two years of blogging, CF and Brian managed to write over 439 posts, with over 4170 comments. They were also able to build up a sizeable social media following, with over 1178 Facebook fans, and 1885 Twitter followers. That is certainly an achievement, and I think they did a great job!

When Brian and CF transferred ownership of their blog to me in mid December, I also decided I wanted to give the site a new look, to go along with A Fresh Start. But lo and behold, the best laid plans of mice and men did not come to fruition. I ended up with full-time shifts at work, and my trusted friend (my laptop) decided to pack it in. Without a computer, full-time work, and Christmas approaching, re-branding The Outlier Model was definitely a low-priority and left on the back burner.

Fast forward to January with a new computer and a new look! I hope you like the theme, which is also a responsive design. That means its mobile friendly, and can be viewed on virtually any device. Be sure to say hello and let me know what you think! ;)

For those of you who don’t know me, I am also the blogger and writer behind the Dividend Ninja. I retired from the web design industry back in 2010, after running a successful design company for over six years.  So looking for a designer wasn’t too difficult. Other than my time, re-branding and designing, the process didn’t cost me a cent. But  more importantly, I’m pretty happy with the new design, and looking forward to building up the site!

I also wanted to extend a big thank you to all of you (loyal readers,) who have continued to follow and support The Outlier Model.

Best wishes for the New Year!
Cheers
Avrom

  3. The new design looks really nice. Happy New Year!

  4. Did not know the site transferred ownership! I’m excited to see the plans you have for Outlier Model.

    • Thanks! DC,

      Most people like to keep things quiet when they take over a blog, I prefer the Ninja approach. I’m looking forward to building up the site and seeing what the future holds… Brian and CF had some great articles here and built up quite a community. I’d like to keep that going.

      Thanx for the support!
      Cheers

  5. Hey,
    I love the new look! It’s fresh and easy to navigate, well done.

  6. I like the new look! Easier to read. Always a bit jarring to read someone new on a site you were once reading, but welcome! I look forward to getting to know you better!
