2015 and A New Look

January 08, 2015

We're already a week into 2015, how crazily fast has the time fly by? I hope it's not too late to wish everyone a happy new year though *pops confetti*. Now, now, I won't be sharing my new year resolutions here (maybe not just yet) but haayy, I've made a new layout for my blog! *pops even more confetti* 

When I announced my blog clean-up before, I thought about giving my blog just a simple, fresh new look. I remember saying to myself: "Hmm I'll just tweak a few bits here and there, recode some simple stuff and voila, a new look!". But boy, it was anything but that. You see, my past layouts were always built (customized) from the old Blogger Minima template as it was the one I am most familiar and comfortable working with. But it seemed that I won't have the access to the layout editor in my dashboard if I revert my template back to classic (!). And trying to arrange the widgets and page elements manually (!!) would just burst my brain out.

So I looked at my closest option: the Blogger Simple template. Coding everything was harder than expected because a. I have seemed to forget all my coding knowledge, b. A few codes/tutorials are outdated/weren't working because I dunno why and c. Reading lines and lines of codes made me dizzy. Despite everything, I somehow managed to put together a new layout *cries*. It is far from perfect and there are tons of things that I'll re-do (the hideous header, and the allover-the-place navigation bar, just to name a few) but regardless, I'm happy with the way it looks.

I updated the blog content too. I got rid of the Mixtape Saturday series, deleted a handful of posts and I finally have an about page. There is still so much left for me to do but for now, I need to sleep.

  1. Happy New Year! The new design looks great! it's amazing how much time and energy even for the simple and effortless look.

    1. Thank you so much! I think it's because I'm still learning so even the simplest thing could be so difficult for me hehe :)
