Work in Progress

I have been so busy lately! I can’t share everything yet… It’s a surprise and you never know who is reading this. I will be sure to update you as soon as I can!

If you haven’t noticed, the blog looks a lot different! I am going for a clean minimalist design. I spent days looking at different blog designers sights but just couldn’t pay someone else to do it before I gave it a shot myself. It is still not exactly what I have in mine but I am going to keep working at it. It is a little too plain at the moment. Any suggestions?

I am pretty proud of myself for creating my own button! It wasn’t hard at all after I figured out what I was doing. I tried out a bunch of different pictures but decided on the sushi photo since it is my absolute favorite thing to eat. I worked really hard on it and would love for you to take it! You can find the grab box in the far right column.


If anyone is a whiz at blog designing I would love any tips and/or suggestions you might have! Feel free to comment below or email me at I am still learning and could use all the help I can get!

I also added a bunch of buttons of other bloggers to my favorites page! I think they are so fun and an easy way to share blogs.

I added a Reviews page.

  • If you are a blogger, did you design your own blog?
I started with a blogger template and have been tweaking it.
  • Did you learn how to design/html from formal training, self-taught, trial and error, etc.?
I have a minor in Computer Applications and Technology. Basically I learned about Microsoft Office and the basic HTML coding. So I am in no way an expert. Mostly it is all trial and error.


  1. I feel ya. I really really need a blog makeover, but i'm not quite ready to pay someone to do it. Maybe in a couple months :) I love the minimalist look. So much easier to navigate!

    Hope your having a great weekend!


    1. Thanks! Yea I am sure I will eventually decide to get someone unless I magically overnight become a design expert:)

  2. SO fun! I love the new look - I like to change things up every once in a while :) Everything I do on my blog is either trial and error or from google :) I have learned a lot - but it still takes me for-ev-er to change anything haha! Good work on the buttons - they look a little intimidating to me.

    I actually just took the plunge to have a designer work on my blog (official as of yesterday!) - I've got until late Feb till I'm in her que so I'm looking at March for my actual roll out date. It's exciting but I'm a little nervous!
