Mark’s Daily Apple Redesign Finally Coming!

The long awaited redesign of Mark’s Daily Apple is almost here. Yesterday I tweeted to all my fellow tweeters a screenshot of the redesign (follow me on Twitter for exclusive updates!). Today it’s your turn. Below you’ll find an image of the new and improved Mark’s Daily Apple (click on it for the full size). I’ve only included the one truncated image because I don’t want to give everything away just yet. You’ll have to wait until Monday for the unveiling, a video from yours truly and an introduction to all the new features and changes.

I’d love to hear your first impressions in the comment board. Thanks!

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Nice! Looks cleaner and easier to navigate (top navigation is always good). I just hope load times etc. don’t take a hit.

    Also, it’s good that it’s easier to find the “comments” function.

  2. Mark,

    The new page design looks wonderful. As someone who has been reading you for a long while, I really wouldn’t care if your info was written on a piece of grass feed top sirloin. The material is what counts, and your material is second to none.

    Keep up the great work.

  3. Will the store have anything else available other than the book and/or your supplements? Specifically, what about the “Grok On” shirt I saw recently on Son of Grok’s blog?

  4. Can’t wait to see the new sight and look forward to pre-ordering a book.

  5. Mark, with the current layout, it is kind of tricky to get hold of all the relevant info about a given topic.

    If I had to organize the content, I’d use the following criteria:

    What is primal
    Why go primal
    How to go primal

    The third category is where I usually dig around, because implementing the lifestyle can be very tricky depending on location, old habits, resources, etc.

    Every one of your posts has useful information, and the forum will very likely be useful to find “that recipe you talked about last year”, or this link regarding X.

    A FAQ would also be extremely useful: diary, alcohol, myths about exercise, etc.

    My two cents. Cheers!

  6. SerialSinner – All good thoughts. In fact I’ve built a Primal Blueprint 101 page to answer all FAQ and to be a guide to the best MDA material. Check back Monday!

  7. Looks a bit like Tim Ferris’ website @ http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/ , perhaps it’s the green color and general layout.

    Congrats on the new design, looks like this will be a great way to attract more people into primal lifestyle.

  8. looks good. green and black is one of my fav color combos. count me in on the pre-order for the book. will you be doing more interviews/guest postings? will there be a expanded primal testimonials section? thank you mark! the p.b. is working for me in so many ways! i hope to be able to use your book in helping friends and family go primal.

  9. Have you checked to make sure this looks good on cell phones? I’m a a PC today, but most of the time I use my cell phone for the web, and a lot of sites don’t work so well.

  10. Hey what’s with all the bogus love? I like the old site just fine. It does what it is supposed to do and is very informative and laid out cleanly. New revamped version. Well lets just wait and see.

  11. oh no! It’s not like Tim Ferriss’, it’s almost exactly the same, but even more corporate looking! Two photos of you on one page (one on the book cover) and big jug of your nutritional supplement? Feels much more self-centered, Border’s Bookstore, boring. Please keep yer old cute friendly flying title. “Mark’s Daily Apple: the blog and lifestyle of Mark Sisson” is awkward english and redundant – we know it is a blog, we know its about lifestyle – and arguably not only about YOUR lifestyle, plus Mark named twice.

  12. Just as long as the header photo isn’t a Flash animation that takes ages to download, it’s looking good from over here!

  13. I must say that I like the old design better. It’s cute, simple, and unique. And what happened to your tagline? “Serving up health and fitness insights (daily, of course) with a side of irreverence” is much more clever and effective than “the blog and lifestyle of Mark Sisson.” That being said, I read your blog for content, so a new layout won’t turn me away…I will just miss the old one.

  14. Mark, It’s gorgeous and much easier to move around on! Thanks for having this blog and place for us to also share thoughts and ideas together.

    All the best with the news site and the book… Congrats!

    PS: Great success stories section :-))
    cheers
