The WordPress.com homepage has a purrty new look for logged out users. The team at Automattic created a more modern look that targets potential new users directly. The post image above is from one of the new slides letting users know that WordPress.com is a perfect place to blog your cat pictures. There are a few other slides for other… umm, niches.
The new design also shows a couple of random themes from the .com theme showcase (which also just got a small redesign and some performance enhancements) as samples of what is available. And there’s a fancy graphic for all the networks you can share content on from within the platform. The option to enable a custom domain is also highly visible.
In case you are wondering, the headline font on the new design is Lato Ultra-Light, which in my non-designer-and-therefore-worthless-opinion, looks delicious.
Go give it a look if you haven’t seen it yet. It’s likely many WPCandy readers are logged into WP.com most of the time, but now you know what your friends will see when you recommend to them the easiest way to get started with a blog.
