We are so excited to launch the new InspireMeToday.com!
We’ve been working for the past few months to create this new and improved experience for you. We love the beautiful new design and think you will too! Some of the highlights of the new site include….
Great New Functionality
You’ll notice right away that our homepage has changed dramatically to highlight new inspirational content of all types! Each day’s Brilliance will be posted front-and-center so you can access it right away. You’ll also find a nifty slideshow of recent Inspirational Photo Quotes, this week’s Inspired Interview, excerpts from our latest blog posts, the most recent question and answer in our Ask a Luminary series, recommendations of new books and upcoming events, and suggested courses- all on the homepage!
We have some great improvements for our Inspirational Archives as well. First, we are now sharing titles for our Brilliances! We decided to highlight the key points of each Brilliance in this way so that you’ll have a better idea if a specific Brilliance will be helpful for you. Second, we’re now suggesting other posts you may like at the end of each Brilliance and other posts. Just hover over a specific image to read the title of the suggested post, then click through if you’d like to read it.
To further help you find the inspirational content you need, we’ve also added topical information to our content. You can view the topics a specific post has by looking just under the title on its page. You can then click on a topic to view other posts that may interest you. You can also see a full compilation of all of our topics by clicking on “Inspired Topics” in the navigation bar at the very top of the site or by visiting Inspired Topics directly. We have a lot of inspiration, so we’re still working on indexing and titling our back archives. These improvements to the archives will continue to get better over time!
Learning more about our Inspirational Luminaries and reading their posts has never been easier. You can now view information from a Luminary’s profile right at the end of their Brilliance or other post, plus, when you click through to their full profile, you can easily see all of the posts they’ve ever made, whether it’s a Brilliance, quote, blog post, or interview! You can also see a full list of our Luminaries if you just want to browse.
Our new Inspired Interview player uses the latest technologies to work better on more platforms and offers more accurate timestamps and play counts to boot! In addition to leaving a comment on the interview’s page, you can now leave comments tied to a specific time in the interview by clicking on the waveform of the interview at the point you want to leave the comment. How cool is that!
Last but certainly not least, the new InspireMeToday.com is mobile-friendly! We are thrilled with the responsive design and love that you’ll now have a great experience whether you’re on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer!
Exciting New Ways to Stay Inspired
We’re introducing two new major offerings with the new inspireMeToday.com: Ask a Luminary and Recommendations.
Ask a Luminary lets you submit a question to our Luminaries about issues you’re struggling with. We’ll pick one of our Luminaries to answer your question and share their response publicly, knowing that what one of us goes through is often relevant to many others. You can ask a question right now or view all of the questions answered to date in our Ask a Luminary archives. You can also access the archives through our main navigation.
Many of you over the years have asked for recommendations for tools and resources to help you live the life you want to lead. Our Recommendations share books, courses, events, and more that we want to recommend for just that very purpose. You can see our latest recommendations on the homepage or access our Recommendations from the Inspirational Archives menu in the main navigation.
Our daily and weekly newsletters now feature all of our inspirational content types, so you can more easily find the items of interest to you, while staying inspired with quick inspirational quotes from our Luminaries and, of course, with our daily Inspirational Photo Quotes. Plus, both newsletters have a beautiful new mobile-friendly design to match the new InspireMeToday.com! If you’re not already signed up, we hope you’ll subscribe today. Remember, you can always switch from daily to weekly or vice versa if you decide you need inspiration on a different frequency!
And More To Come!
We’ve got more improvements brewing as we speak (cough: app update!) and look forward to share them with you very soon. We greatly appreciate all the feedback we’ve received over the years and during this project about how we better serve you. We couldn’t inspire the world without you!
Thank you so much for being a part of the Inspire Me Today community. We love you, we’re here for you, and we can’t wait to see you again tomorrow!
Love and hugs,
Gail, Kristan, and the InspireMeToday.com Team
