So…… after almost a year I FINALLY have a new-ish design. I wanted to revamp the entire theme, but I’ve honestly spent MONTHS trying to find one that works the way I want it to and my current one is the only one that comes close.
You all know I’ve said in the past before how limiting I find free accounts when it comes to design and it’s something I really struggle with. I was fully planning on purchasing a premium account until I realised it was billed yearly, not monthly. Unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of money up front so I tried to work with what I have, the best I could.
Despite knowing a decent amount about web hosting I still don’t feel quite ready to make that leap for a number of reasons. The main one being that I’d need a month by month web host, which do exist, but then that means if I’m short one month (which is a high possibility) then my blog is down. Obviously, this wouldn’t be an ideal situation, haha. At least here my blog will be here no matter what.
The header image for this theme is pretty limiting because of the way it rescales to fit certain browsers and mobile devices, so I had to keep it pretty simple, otherwise pieces would be cut off on different screens. My entire design method is simplicity, which I struggle with a bit because I see other people out there create these incredible intricate designs but then I also think sometimes simple is better. When there’s too much happening in the background it can distract you. Or, maybe that’s just me trying to justify my methods 😎 Either way, I’m pretty happy with how the header turned out. I like the colours and it’s straight to the point.
I only changed the most recent featured images because I’m lazy as hell.
Honestly, not a whole heaps has changed, but I hope you guys like it!! Would love to hear your thoughts ♥
