Under Construction

It may have been a month or so ago that I last mentioned that I would be making some changes to the blog. I was not very specific at that time, and I'm still not going to give away all of my secrets just yet, but I am going to talk about some of the changes that are going to happen.

First of all, I'm looking at changing the colour scheme and background of the blog. While I still like the colours I originally started with, I don't know if it's quite right for what I want this blog to really be. I think I need something a little less plain, but I'm not planning on going too absurd or extreme.

I want to find something that looks good, and makes this blog feel more like my personality. I am actually thinking about using an image or a pattern for the background instead of just a solid colour. I think that would be a good way to make it more unique, and stand out a little bit more.

Secondly, I am going to rework the page tabs that you can choose from the top of the blog. I intend to introduce an entirely new page on the blog, which will hopefully become a big focus for us. I may change the order in which the tabs are found at the top, and add or take away as I feel is necessary.

Thirdly, I am intending to revamp the various series of posts that I have. I may be reducing the number of nail art posts that I write and share, because now that I'm working, I find my nail polish gets destroyed far too quickly. I may start writing some more posts about school in the fall, once it starts, because school is very important to me and I think it's important to talk about the impact of post-secondary education. I'm sure I will also get some other ideas as I'm working on it.

Lastly, for the past few months, I've been considering changing platforms. I'm not sure if Blogger/Blogspot is the right platform for my blog, because it has such limited features. I may move over to Wordpress to be able to have more opportunity for customization and freedoms. However, I am still a beginner to blogging and creating a website, so I have not yet made this decision. It may take a while before I am able to figure it out, but I'll be sure to let you all know!

So, that's pretty much it for the changes I'm working on right now. It may be a little imperfect here on the blog for a while as I work on making these changes, but be patient and it will only be getting better!
