    Ever wondered what that description on WordPress themes meant? What does ‘responsive‘ mean when it comes to a blog theme? Well, wonder no more because today, I’m going to tell you exactly what responsive blog design is! *cue enthusiastic cheer for this short educational post* If you haven’t seen it before when searching for a WordPress theme, then I highly recommend that you do, if and when you decide to vamp up your blog. The good news is, most blog themes on WordPress are responsive – but what does that even mean?

    BLOGIFUL DAY 3 | How to Make Your Blog More Visible: SEO 101

    Welcome to Blogiful Day 3! Today’s topic is a big one. A topic that I’m not even an expert at (although my colleague is since I work in Marketing). Despite that, I’m going to try and explain the wonders of SEO as simply as I can. In understandable English, without all the jargon – in the context that you guys are bloggers (experts don’t shoot me). Don’t worry if you’re scared of technical things, because most of the important parts of SEO are not technical at all (and you might already be doing them too!) It is, unfortunately, another technical subject that makes it less accessible unless you self-host your…

    BLOGIFUL DAY 2 | Blog Signatures: Why & How?

    Welcome to Blogiful Day 2! I really hope you guys enjoyed the posts Kat and I published yesterday for our official Blogiful event launch. Today, I am bringing you another cool topic I’ve had some questions about in the past ~ the mighty blog signature. If you’ve read posts on my blog before, you’ll know that they usually always end with a cute lil blog signature that says ‘love, truffles’ and my social media links (check it out now, down below if you haven’t). And, there are many reasons why blog signatures are and should most definitely be a thing – which is what I’ll be sharing with you today,…

A typeface is the overall design of lettering;[1] the design can include variations, such as extra bold, bold,…

    My 2020 Most Anticipated Releases

    While this isn’t a traditional discussion post, I feel like many bookworms tend to discuss what books they’re looking forward to, so here are mine! It’s unfortunate but also kind of good that my list of anticipated releases for 2020 is so short. I don’t plan on buying a lot of books this year so that I can concentrate on my physical TBR so this is definitely helpful but of course, there are a select few books I’d love to get my hands on when they come out in 2020. The Map from Here to There by Emery Lord You could say that I’m a fan of Emery since I’ve…

    My January TBR | Bujo Snippet

    What better way to show you guys my TBR than to give a quick snapshot of my bookish bullet journal? In case you missed it on my Instagram story earlier this week, here it is 🙂 I’m so excited to get into these books after I finish my current reads. At the moment, I’m finishing up Ninth House and I’ve been listening to the audiobook of The Devouring Gray which is so great so far. What are you reading and what’s on your TBR for this month? Do you guys like these TBR bullet journal snippets or a traditional TBR post? Let me know,

    2019 Wrap-Up, #YARC2019 Results & 2020 Goals

    Happy New Year! 2019 is over, and what a wrap-up I’ve got in store for you. There is so much to talk about because so much happened this year. I graduated from university and somehow managed to read 55 books, on and off keep blogging and do so much more – so here is my 2019 wrap-up. My Reading in 2019 It was definitely hard to keep myself reading this year. I was struggling with mental health and really didn’t feel like it much for like 80% of the year. The fact that I achieved my goal of 50 books is kind of amazing to me and I’m so proud…
