Hey all, I wanted to write a small post today on a few things I've been mulling over. You may have seen me mention on Twitter about my blog htmls and the way it looks lately! I've never been fully confident updating the layout and look of my blog and it's always something I have taught myself. Recently I have been thinking of freshening it up a bit but struggling to know where to start! I really love the look of Liv Purvis' blog 'What Olivia Did' and how she has kept it true to herself yet it's clean and nicely laid out. So I thought i'd write a few things I have done so far and my future plans to see what you think.
Firstly, I found it crucial when stepping up a gear with my blog to take it from a blogspot to my own little Domain. You can use *this website* to help you with that set up! Making myself feel like this is my own corner of the web and a place to call my own! I never had a quirky name for my blog, but I quite like having my name in a .co.uk!!
Secondly, I illustrated my own banner and social buttons. Obviously I did illustration at university so am lucky enough to be able to do all the creative side of things myself. Albeit I feel it needs a re-vamp and fresh face! Was thinking of a plainer background, tidying up my sidebar and text!
Lastly, this is the tricky stuff I don't quite grasp. Html and coding my website to make it all add up and look pretty is the hardest thing! I feel like I need a blogger fairy god mother to come and help me with it all. I have taught myself the basics but I think in order to get my blog looking how I want I need to call in some favors, any volunteers (don't worry this isn't the hunger games).
