I Did A Thing: Writing Essays With Wine Redesign


As you may have noticed there has been a considerable redesign over here on Writing Essays With Wine. After over 4 months of blogging I decided it was time to actually design my blog and try and get it to a standard Im happy with. My previous design was, well not a design, it was just a plain and simple title. When I started blogging I hadn't wanted to spend lots of time on the design if I ended up not carrying on with blogging, but now I think Im here to stay for a while so I needed to step my game up. 

I had a lot of help from my boyfriend, he designed and made the header and helped me pick a colour scheme which Im really happy with. However all the coding and other things I did myself just through googling and finding tutorials that told me exactly what to do. Im not 100% happy with it yet, but Im pretty proud that I managed to do it (almost) by myself. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions on the new design, as well as any tips or tricks and any areas you think need improving.

    1. Thanks so much! Im really proud of it! I'd love to make you a header but it would look like something a 5 year old drew! My boyfriend made this one for me, he's a pretty talented guy :P

    1. Thank you :) Im really happy with it. I did all the coding for mine myself, and I had zero idea what I was doing, I just goggled all the things I wanted and read tutorials. I'd be happy to help if you want some advice, not that Im any expert at all, I can just tell you how to do the things I've done haha.

    1. Thanks so much Sam! I had no idea what I wanted to do with mine, luckily my boyfriend is pretty creative and just kinda designed the header for me and we went from there!
