Oh Happy Day is Sparkly and New!

I’m so happy to introduce you to the new Oh Happy Day. I’ve been working on this for a long time and I’m so excited that today is the big day! Last week was my 5 year blogging anniversary so it seemed a fitting time to launch my new site. I want to say thank you to everyone for all the support over the last five years and I have lots of surprises this week to do just that. We’re still working out all the little bugs in the site so feel free to come in and kick the tires! The new site has everything categorized into sections so its a lot easier to find ideas things you are looking for. Besides a sparkly new design we’ve changed url’s to Which means if you read this blog through an RSS feed you’ll need to update the feed in your reader right here!

I want to give a special thanks to Erin Jang my designer for the beautiful job she did. She is so talented!

And I owe my right arm and first born son to Mark Allen for the genius programming job. He is smart and generous and owns more tennis shoes than you.

I also want to thank all of you for reading Oh Happy Day. This blog is the best thing to ever happen to me (besides my family) I accidentally fell into blogging like most people so I feel super grateful I get to do this for my job. Every morning I get up eat a warm fluffy croissant and think “I’m so lucky.” Thank you for giving me the best job in the world.

    Is it just me, or is the typeface hard to read? It’s probably my crummy laptop….Looks beautiful otherwise!

    Hi Jordan! Congrats on the new site. I’m a big fan of yours (I don’t know if you remember, but I am the random Asian-American girl that introduced myself while you were picnicking by the Eiffel Tower back in March.) Just wanted to make you aware that your body font it rendering a little difficult on the eyes for Windows 7 users. You can see what I mean by going here: and clicking on the Browser Samples tab. Hope that helps!

    This is fun and matches your “mood” perfectly… I’m excited to follow it along from your old blog, which I just started reading right before you moved to Paris.
    However, the main body font is a bit hard on the eyes — I find myself squinting to read it, and I have 20/20 vision. It looks like the top got *just* barely cut off and there’s a white line through most of the letters top/bottom.

    Congratulations! Funny thing: when I read your Anthology post the other day, I noted that they put your website as ohhappyday and I felt so bad that they had the wrong address! I didn’t want to mention it because I didn’t want to be “that” commenter. Haha!
