I've got that itch again!!!!

Around this time last year, I kept feeling bored and irritated with my blog - specifically the blog design (so much so that I actually wrote two posts about it here and here). I was using a generic template from Blogger, that kinda reminded me of wallpaper. In my mind when I chose that template, I was welcoming readers into my little living room for a bit of gisting and chatting. But then right around my birthday, I got this overwhelming feeling to change the look and feel of the blog. I played around with things and here we are now.

BUT...

I'm getting sick of the design now. What is it about June and feeling like this? I don't want to be one of those people who keeps changing everything randomly, because I appreciate consistency. However, change is the only constant, right? Blogs that I'm attracted to usually have the clean, minimalist looks - stark white background, with black lettering and maybe a pop or two of color. I'm tempted to go that route, but doesn't it seem like A WHOLE LOT of blogs look the same?!?!?! Or is that just me?

What do you think? Please respond in the poll below.




P.S. If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments below. Thanks!!! Kisses!

  2. Like you, I prefer clean, minimalist looks, I find it hard to focus and dwell on the content of a post if I'm distracted by vivid colours. White background with black lettering always holds my attention.

    I quite understand the urge to switch things up once in a while, it's almost like painting your bedroom wall with fresh, popping colour, suddenly your sleep feels even sweeter, lol :-)

    1. Exactly! Maybe a black and white palette with a pop of color - now what pop of color?!?!?!

  3. I actually like it just the way it is. Looks solid with a pop of fun. I dunno if I'm making sense. Lol. But it's cool.

  4. Your blog design is nice & simple. Instead of changing the whole design, you could jazz it up a lil bit instead. :)

    1. I got it done at an event. It was done by The Henna Place, and they're located on Fola Osibo Road in Lekki 1. I hear they're a little pricey though.
