behind the scenes

Fresh New Face



I figured it was high time to get rid of my old theme (Striking, un-responsive) and put together something more… 2015 (though the watercolor bouquet in the header bothers me a little because it’s so 2014 wedding invitation).

I’ll also be undergoing a long overdue blog overhaul. Can you believe Ditz Revolution has been around since 2006?! I’m reluctant to delete old entries because I like how I can easily access a good chunk of the last nine years, but I’m definitely going to privatize a bunch of crap that I find irrelevant. I was going through my drafts the other day and saw I had stuff typed up from 2008 that I never got around to publishing! That turned out to be a good thing because they were supes embarrassing.

It still needs a lot of tweaking and fixing, which I’ll get to this weekend. I can’t wait to breathe new life into this dumb old blog!

    I really love the new look Helga! I like the header too! It’s so nice to have a refreshed blog, that’s why I ditched Tumblr and left my “old self” with it. Haha. #Tumblr09

    Excited to see more, as usual! <3

    I miss your old theme but I really like the new one! ? It’s so simple and clean. :) By the way, I always see that font everywhere (the one you used for the word “hello”). Is it okay to know what font is that?

    This is a nice, clean look! I love the watercolors. I need to redo my site, and start blogging again. Still don’t know how people who work full time jobs do it everyday.

    • Reply Helga March 2, 2015 at 5:42 pm

      @Crystal, You have to make time! That’s what I’m doing now haha. I try and write/draft something every day.

    Your blog’s new look is just so fresh to the eyes! One of the best minimalist looks I’ve ever seen so far. Any yay for 9 years! That means I’ve been reading your blog for 4 years now. Cheers!

      @Cae, Thank you! And thanks for sticking around. :)

    It looks great! I, for one, like the wedding invitation header. WHAT ARE YOU TRYNA TELL US?

    I technically still have my old blog entries from 2004-2008. I’ve made them hard to find because lololol who wants to read my early teen posts full of exclamation points, smilies, and how nobody understood me? I can’t let them go though coz that was my an honest record of my life.

      @Raisa, Ugh I haven’t gotten around to privatizing stuff because BUSY! Hahahaha.

    Beautiful layout, Helga! I’ve been following you since Tumblr days and IMHO, this is the best “face” that your blog has donned on. :)
