Rob and I are making some majorly minor changes to this site. We hope that you like them and that they make it easier to navigate and find all the information we have squirreled away here! It’s not quite finished, so please be patient while we work out some of the kinks. Post all comments and feedback below, and do let us know if you find any links that aren’t working. Read on for more details, and make sure to sign up for our mailing list!
First off, we’re very excited about our new header and logo. The old header with the photo of durians hanging above just felt sort of….blah. We felt it looked outdated and dull and didn’t communicate what our site is about or our raging excitement about durian!
Our site is about traveling, durian and traveling for durian. We started with Southeast Asia, but seriously, we just can’t help ourselves. We find durian everywhere we go, and we’re constantly on the move. So even though the old banner was a photo of the very first durian we ever saw hanging on a tree, which is a very cool memory, it’s time to move on. We’re thrilled with our new look, and we hope you are too!
Second, we finally, finally, FINALLY have a drop down navigation menu. Hooray!! All the credit goes to the illustrious Rob, who spent many hours finagling that finicky code to work in our custom Blogger template (tip: don’t start your blog with Blogger. It’s really hard to customize).
Now, our content is actually visible to be perused instead of hiding in the cramped quarters of the archives. We have over 300 posts all about durian, from travel stories on our year-long adventure to recipes, articles about whether or not durian causes high cholesterol to resource pages on each of the individual durian species. Hopefully you can now use this information to help plan your own trips or educate and amuse yourself with the King of Fruit.
