Hi! It’s me–Jennifer from Running on Lentils. After nearly two years blogging at Running on Lentils, I’ve moved to my new home, Dashing in Style. I wanted a name that better reflected my dual focus of running and activewear, and I loved the double-meaning of dashing to mean both running and how you’re dressed. Running and activewear will take center stage on this blog, but you can also expect some plant-based recipes, travel, greyhound and cat pictures and stories, and other random posts peppered in. I hope you’ll add Dashing in Style to your blog reader and stick around for the next chapter in my blogging journey.
To celebrate my new blog, I’ll be throwing a virtual launch party with giveaways starting next week. Stay tuned!
A Tour of Dashing in Style
I’ll be doing a post about my experience moving to a self-hosted site for my fellow bloggers who might be interested. For now, I wanted to give you a quick tour of site features.
Comment Reply Notifications
I put a lot of thought into the comment reply notification system. I wanted a system where readers don’t have to use an account and can opt-in for notifications, and that sends notifications only when there is a reply to the poster’s comment and not for every comment. Long story short, there isn’t an actively developed and maintained system that easily does all those things. My system does these things, but you need to take an additional step to not get notifications for every comment. I know not everyone will love this, but I prefer to let you choose whether to receive notifications, even if that means taking an additional step.
I’m going to continue looking at other solutions, but for now if you want to get responses to your comment:
- Check the box beside “Notify me of follow-up comments by email.” You will receive notifications of all comments on that post.
- You can change the setting so that you don’t get all those notifications by clicking the “Manage your subscriptions” link in the email notification.
- You will be directed to a page where you can then check the box beside the post(s), and then choose beside “Action” either
- “Replies to my comments” to get replies only to your comment or
- “Suspend” to get no further notifications.
New Posts by Email
I’ve added a new feature where you can get new posts in your inbox. Just enter your email in the sidebar (or the bottom if you’re viewing in mobile or tablet). Your email will never be shared and will only be used to send new posts. You won’t receive any other emails or newsletters from me by entering your email address.
Easier Ways to Share Content
I’ve added share options to each post and also added a site-wide button to pin posts to Pinterest. Check out my customized Pin it! button I made!
This is a work in progress. Right now you’ll just get all my posts in the activewear category. I’ll be working to make a user friendly page that’s easy to find reviews and brands instead of scrolling through all the posts.
