Blog-ception, a post about the blog itself!

Today, I decided to show you the front page of the blog, and explain a bit how you can navigate it more easily, if you’re interested on it. I know some of you have had some issues in the past, and I thought maybe there are more of you out there! In order to do that in a clear way, I’ve decided to take a screenshot of the front page (or rather, a bunch of them), and explain it. I hope this helps! First of all, you’ll find the top menus and the featured posts. There are two different top menus, one for the different pages of the blog, and one for categories. These menus, along the name of the blog on the left, will always show at the top. If you ever want to return to the front page, simply click on [shutter and ink] and you’ll come back to it. The pages of the blog are About, Blog, FAQ, Contact me and Disclaimer. You can find this menu on the top right corner, …

The story so far…

Recently, I got curious about the beginning of this blog. I’ve been blogging for the past three years with more or less frequency on this same site, only it had a different name back then; I can’t really remember how it all felt back then, so I decided to have a look around the archives (which you can also do by filtering the contents using the drop-down arrow just below the main category menu and above the featured posts). My first post was aptly titled Welcome, and introduction, I’m nothing if not organised, I guess. It was interesting to read it again, and realise that of all the things I listed I wanted to write about, I’ve done most of them. I still like drawing, but my drawings are so bad that I never want to show them to anyone (although that’s something I might be planning to change this year, we’ll see). Everything else is still there: photography, crafts, writing. It’s nice to see that after three years my hobbies and passions are pretty …

Finally, a decision made. Expect change!

I’ve finally found a new theme for the blog, one that I really like. Do you know what that means? That for the next few days I’ll be playing around with features, pages, menus, fonts and colours. I will try to keep the disruption to you guys to a minimum, but I guess some stuff might not work properly at some point. In order to practise beforehand, I’ve created a private blog, where I’ve managed to play around with the theme’s features, as some of them are quite new to me! Ideally, I’ll have it ready by Sunday evening, if nothing gets in the way, that is. I might be looking to some re-branding, or maybe not, I’m still not sure about it. There’s a logo I really like and would love to use, that a friend made for me, but I’m not sure how to make it work with the overall blog idea that I have in my mind. All in due time. That’s it! I hope you’re having a wonderful Thursday, and I’ll …
