Brand Spankin’ New!

Guy’s I think I’ve figured it out, I figured out why I’ve been in a blogging rut.

Summer time is definitely still to blame but in actuality, I think it was the lingering fact that I was bored with the look of my blog. Sure, it was cute, girly, and just what I wanted- at first. Butย just recently I felt like I didn’t even care to look at my blog. As if it wasn’t as visually or aesthetically stimulating enough for me anymore.

I know the answer is simple- go Self Hosted! I mean, yeah, one day I will, but that day is not today. To be honest, I’m okay with the free layouts that WordPress supplies us and after some trail and error last night and into today- I did it.

I changed my layout!

It’s clean, sleek, easy to look at, and easy to navigate through.

First and foremost, I gave myself a new header photo.

Blog name to the upper left corner and my social media links to the upper right corner

If you’re looking at it through a cell phone view– still clean, sleek, easy to look at, and easy to navigate through.

And the Menu bar drops down to my social media links.

As of right now I am so excited and happy with how it looks! I’m sure many of you who utilize the free layouts also use this one too, let me know if we share the same one ๐Ÿ™‚ The best part is, I actually feel like I’m ready to blog again!

xo, JJ

      Aw thanks sweets! I totally support the change, it was fun testing out the different themes but totally relieved I found one that spoke to me! Are you self hosted or do you use the layouts wordpress has?

        I use the layouts wordpress has, as I just kinda started on this website. I’ve changed my theme like 5 times but I still haven’t found one I’m truly content with! I like the look of the one I have know, but I’m not sure it’s very fitting to other people. Would you mind checking it out and telling me if i should change it?

    And I definitely want to change my theme too, I have been ready to change it for MONTHS but I just never had the chance to look through and give them a shot ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    I’ll have to do it sometime this week, hopefully before September because next month is going to be hectic in the blog LOL

  13. Oh yay Jenny, I already saw this new theme briefly a couple of days ago, but now looking at it I really love it! This one looks so much more sleek like the other one and I think it fits totally in with your whole blogging subjects! I like it, oh, I also like that big picture on the left, it’s so clear! xo
