    March Wrap-Up & April TBR

    March Wrap-Up  & April TBR   Well, March went by pretty quickly! It was so busy; I started my university semester (studying writing and editing for the first time eek) and my workload at work almost doubled. Between those two as well as juggling my mental health and design side-projects, it’s been a little unreal. I didn’t read as much as I’d liked and once again I’ve had to put down the two big books I’ve been ‘currently reading’ for months (Eldest & Morning Star) but eventually, I’ll get to finish them 🙂 – probably in May since I’m doing a month-long readathon whoops. I’ve also been doing graphic banners…

    February Wrap-Up & March TBR

    February Wrap-Up & March TBR   It’s MARCH ALREADY?? The year is flying past and there are still so many books on my TBR to read (perpetually stuck between happy ^_^ and sad T_T cause the TBR is never going down but more stories to read, the better). Feb was not the greatest reading month for me. Despite having a big break from uni this month, I was so unproductive and somehow busy, yet not? I also was very unwell for a little while which sucks so it’s all about playing the catch-up game now. The highlight of February for this blog, however, was the BLOGIFUL blog design event, my…

    BLOGIFUL DAY 6: Blog Coding 101

    Customizing Your Blog With Code: HTML, CSS & Plugin Basics   What is HTML & CSS? As cool as it would be, blogs are unfortunately not created by magic and yes, do involve coding. Basic coding, however, isn’t super hard to understand and make up the basic building blocks of all websites including blogs. Now, with WordPress, depending on what kind you use, you can alter your blog and change its HTML (WordPress.com & WordPress.org) and CSS (WordPress.org). As defined by Wikipedia, HTML is: “Hypertext Markup Language is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications.“, which is jumbo jumbo for the language you use to create…

    BLOGIFUL DAY 4: Your Blog Menu

    Your Blog Menu | The Importance of Navigation   Your blog menu may be something you don’t think about much when designing or re-designing your blog, but it’s actually pretty important! Your blog menu is the core of how others can navigate your site and if they can’t navigate very well, your blog doesn’t have as great of a user experience as it could achieve.

    BLOGIFUL DAY 3: Photography Tips

    Photography Tips | What If You Don’t Prefer Graphics?   Who said you had to have graphics to have a cute blog? While my lovely co-host Kat has a super cute and beautiful blog with the most adorable graphics (don’t forget to check out her BLOGIFUL posts right >>HERE<<), I, on the other hand, have preferred to use mostly photos for my imagery. Personally, I think it works great and it works for me. It keeps things interesting and not as completely uniform or synonymous and I also like that I can incorporate my bookstagram photos into my blog too. If you would prefer to use photography rather than graphics,…
