Remember those sayings, “You can’t judge a book by its cover” or ” Looks don’t matter.”
I think they kind of do when it comes to a blog.
My first blog theme was Suburbia, which I found out doesn’t exist anymore. I’m not surprised, it was quite ugly. I’m not sure why I decided to choose in the first place. It clearly showed I had no idea how a blog layout should look like. I changed it to another theme, which I think was called Bueno, however I literally just looked up Bueno now and it looks completely different than from what I remembered it to be. My most recent free WordPress theme was Mantra. It was alright, but let’s be honest, it wasn’t very appealing to the eye.
HUGE thanks to the readers, fellow pf bloggers, and commenters who still came. My content must have been good enough to a certain extent.
Then I decided to take the plunge, use some of my ad income and actually buy a theme from StudioPress. After a few hours of tweaking (the installation was much easier than I thought), I am satisfied with the new look of my blog (At least I think I am for now). It looks brighter and more fresh. Like it got 8 hours of sleep and awoke to a brand new start.
Aside from makin’ my blog better, I’m also gradually makin’ better food choices. I had recently picked up Oh She Glows vegan cookbook and have already made Chana Masala. I am planning on using more chia seeds and quinoa as part of my diet. Since quinoa is a part of the Peruvian diet, I had a lot of it during my trip.
To set the record straight, I’m not going vegan or vegetarian or any other one of its forms. I’m still an omnivore. I still love my meat. I’ll just try to love vegetables and less processed foods more.Image Courtesy of Suat Eman/FreeDigitalPhotos.net
