So, I Basically Broke Everything




As some of you may notice, I’m in the process of redesigning my blog. This has caused mass chaos and much stress. Some things are broken and/or strangely colored right now. I will be trying to fix them over the next few nights.

Also, I know nothing about blog design. Any feedback would be massively appreciated. I hated the redesign when I first saw it last night, but then I took an anxiety pill, and now I have mixed feelings about the redesign. So, obviously my design judgment depends entirely upon the status of my brain chemicals and therefore can’t be trusted. Let me know what you think.

  1. I love it! The only advice I'd give is to customise your Follow by Email and Search gadgets to fit your blog look, thesepaperhearts.com has tutorials for both of those ( & it's just CSS so it's really simple!).

    1. Awesome! Thanks for the tutorial site. I’m planning on changing the social media buttons, but I wasn’t sure how to do the Email or Search buttons.

  2. I totally get it! I'm decent enough with Photoshop but I royally suck at web design. That's why I still haven't gotten around to redesign my blog even though my design is ancient and I hate it, I just break out in hives every time I even think about the work one must put into it.
    I really like how it turned out for you though. It looks very clean and old-school. I would only move the first few links on the right somewhere else so they would be more noticeable :)
    Good work!

    1. Thanks! I might change those links to tabs when I remember how. I think there’s a fairly easy way to do it.

  3. Redesigns are so stressful, right? I am planning on doing one too and I just don't know if I can handle it!

    1. Yeah, redesigning wasn’t nearly as fun as I thought it would be. I spent a lot of time doing the same thing over, and over, and over until it looked OK enough.

  4. I think it's very unique and tastefully done. I've been slowly making changes to my blog design too, but I really just want to take a whole day to focus on it and get everything done at once. But there's this silly thing called "work" that keeps getting in my way...

    1. Thanks! It took me 2 nights to get the blog to this point because I couldn’t work on it during the day. I didn’t know that redesigning would be so time-consuming. I was using one of blogger’s pre-designed blogs before, so I don’t have much design experience.

I do a happy dance every time I get a comment. (You should be grateful that you’re not around to witness this dance. It’s truly horrifying.) Leave a link to your blog so I can visit you.
