What’s the difference between and

on 9.8.2014 vs.

People often ask me if my premade blog themes will work on their WordPress blog. The first thing I always reply is: “Is your blog on or is it self-hosted?” This question usually causes confusion, which I completely understand. There are two kinds of WordPress, and figuring out which does what can seem like a puzzle. So to clear up the confusion, I figured I’d explain the difference between and (also known as Self-hosted WordPress).

An easier way to add social media icons

How to add social media buttons without uploading images

My very first blog design tip is about how to add social media icons to your blog… without uploading any images! But wait, why would you want that? Well…

You’ll save time because you won’t have to create the icons yourself or hunt them down on the web. They’re also easy to customize in terms of color and size. They’ll look better because they’re scalable vectors, which means that you get clear, pixel-perfect icons at any size. No blurry images — even on screens with very high resolutions!

So how does it work, you ask? I use the free resource called Font Awesome, and it really is awesome. Alright, this is starting to sound like an infomercial, so let’s get started!

My summer goal

on 8.25.2014

I had one goal this summer: Start a blog. I’ve been reading and following blogs for a while, slowly but surely falling in love with the blogosphere. I love scrolling through my Bloglovin’ feed and looking at fashion outfits, reading beauty reviews, learning new DIY skills, drooling over design inspiration as well as beautiful photography. What I’m trying to say is… I wanted to be part of that world (yes, I’m a Disney nerd and will use any excuse to reference the movies). So here I am!

My blog will mostly be about design. Blog design, web design, graphic design. It’s what I love. I’ll be sharing tips and tricks on how to prettify your blog; why responsive design matters; how to add extra features to my blog templates, and much more. I’ll also be showcasing new templates and client work.

You can follow on Bloglovin if you’d like to keep up with my blogging journey. Until next time… :)
