I haven't seen you guys in like, forever. (actually, I've never seen any of you, but you know what I mean).
But what is this? These strange pastel-ly colors splashed across the header? The whiteness? The cleanliness? The strange, whimsical font in which the header is written?
in which a girl reads blog, despite the difference of appearance.
: To disguise the underlying moldiness of the blog yesterday I decided to do some (much needed) renovations. This could have turned out terribly since:
1) I don't even know what HTML or CSS is
2) I forgot to back up my template before I started
3) Did I mention I don't know ANYTHING about, well, anything?
but miraculously my blog is in intact and I think, better for it. I designed the header and the heart with book titles and pretty much everything else new you see (not the blog template from scratch, I just fiddled around with it). I sort of had a revelation in terms of minimalism and clean lines (I'm such a fan of lines) so I decluttered my sidebar of all but the essentials, and I'll be adding a lot of the stuff I axed to my new pages (I'm still not quite done with those. I still need to do a new blog button as well.).
This was a very lovely experience because I found out that I can, in fact, do interwebby template things by myself and I stumbled across TYPOGRAPHY. Which I've seen before but hadn't realized was quite so cool. So I'll be experimenting with that from now on because it's strangely calming and soothing especially since I don't know what I'm doing.
However, there was a very, very scary moment in which I accidentally disabled the commenting system and there were no more comments on my blog and
I AM NEVER, NEVER LEAVING AGAIN*. I MISSED YOU GUYS SO, SO MUCH.
And what am I doing with this new freedom? I FEEL AS FREE AS A BIRD. A BIRD. FREEEEEEEE. FLYING TO FREEDOM.
Well, I'll be back to blogging, for sure. Reading. Writing. Listening to music. I have my life back. *happy dances*. I am very leisurely typing this out and there is no more sense of impending doooom. *cries a little* *gabbles incoherently*
SO HAPPY TO BE BACK! I can't wait to get back into commenting, I haven't visited some of my favorite blogs in forever. And thank you X1000 for all the lovely comments you left, I've been reading them all (even if I haven't been replying).
And what did a miss? blogging scandals? awesome posts? your awesomeness? (of course, I missed that, tehe). Fill me in or link to things that you want me to see :)
*restrictions such as vacation apply. tehe.
