How I gave my blog a makeover! :)

*Hi! Welcome to my blog if you're visiting from the "One Project at a Time" link party at A Bowl Full of Lemons! Hope you enjoy my post! Feel free to look around some more! If you would like to know a little more about me, click here!*

If you've read my blog for a while, then you may have noticed that I gave it a makeover! To see how it looked before, click here! It took a while and I have probably gone through thousands (ok, not that many) blog design, HTML & other related tutorials, but I think it was all worth it! I'm planning to add a few things, but for now that'll remain on hold (click here to know why). In this post, I'll mention all of my resources that I used to do the makeover!

#1 - Background:
I searched site after site looking for a background that I liked. I knew I wanted a subtle, patterned, blue/teal (preferably a light shade) background. Finally, I came across Fabulous Blogging's "Best Free Websites for Background Images" post and went through all of the sites. I found the current teal and white polka dot textured background on Background Labs (link for this one is here)! All I had to do was download the PNG image - it was as simple as that! This site also has some other great backgrounds, so make sure to check them out!

Moving across the world?! :)

Hi! 

Just wanted to give you an update saying that we (ie, my family and I) are moving from India to the USA! I'm currently busy packing & studying for standardized tests, but I will be doing a few travel related posts soon, so stay tuned for that! If you have any requests (especially related to travelling), leave a comment below! I'll do my best to do them! 

That's it! Make sure you subscribe to my blog (buttons in the right sidebar) so you know when I post next! Thanks! :)

Blog Makeover?! :)

Hi!

Well, you might be able to tell, my blog looks different. Very different. I gave it a makeover! Took a while, reading tutorial after tutorial & trying to figure out HTML (hey, that kinda rhymes! If you say it kind of fast) but I finally did it! Of course, it doesn't look super professional and all that, but it's much better than before, don't you think?

I might go over what I did do to give it a makeover in detail, if you would like me to! Leave a comment below! It wasn't that hard at all!

And now for the Before and After!
