Welcome to Version #3 of The McDonnell Rule.
Every time I change layouts I think to a theme (kind like Major Crimes crew does for each season): first version was dedicated to Major Crimes, second version generically on Mary’s career, this third is like the second version but more specific.
What I wanted to give the viewers are two things:
being captured by Mary’s incredible smile.
– a look into her career of almost 40 years.

Since the fansite is growing as days go by, and so is my passion for it (and Mary!), and the need of matching is for three different layouts I decided to keep steady on her smile image and change the background. So we have her stages year on the main site, Major Crimes/Battlestar Galactica as television projects on the gallery and her movies on the video archive.

The themes are all 100% mobile-friendly and each post has its own sharing options on sociables with just a click on the button (twitter, facebook, tumblr and pinterest. If there is any other social you use and may like to share my posts please let me know and I’ll check if the plugin has it, I’ll be happy to add! Every share makes the site grows bigger in google too.)

I will not conclude this post without the due thanks to Maria and Julia for always supporting with enthusiasm my decisions on this website and being real good advisers for what’s better to viewers, but the biggest of thanks must go to my dear good friend Frederik for I took the inspiration for this layout from his site and because he is always ready to help me figure that brilliant idea out of the chaos in my mind. Your support and friendship is everything to me, thank you Team C.!

Here it is, the new version all for you. I hope you like what I did with it, the thought and the realization and now let’s spread the Mary love, happy #MaryMonday.
