Hi all, I have a good news to share. Remember that I mentioned that I would be revamping my blog? Yes, I had moved to a new place now. I imported the content from this blog over to the new site as well, so you could still check out my old posts. From now on, I will be updating over at that new site. Hopefully with the new layout, I will be more motivated to blog frequently with better posts. So, do check out my new site, and let me know if you have any comments! See you there!
It’s been awhile since I talked about the design for new new blog layout. So, this is one of the design that was drew by me. It’s one of the shortlisted designs. I am still trying to figure out the direction that I am after. Hopefully, I would be able to come out with something real soon. E.
I am thinking if I should change the blog’s theme. Thus, I was playing around with the themes that are available. I have shortlisted these three themes: Photography Theme, Superhero Theme and Twenty Eleven Theme.
I am currently using Twenty Eleven Theme, as it is easy to use. It has everything that I need or want for a blog. However, after exploring Photography Theme, it gave me an idea that I could merge both my port folio together with my blog. This will allow me to have everything on one site. The overall control is on a platform. However, I need to pay for the theme and I will need time to figure out how to use that. As for Superhero, I like the fixed header and the overall look and feel of the theme.
Thus, till now, I am unable to think which is the theme that I exactly want. I think I have to think through on the long term basic on what my focuses are, before I proceed to use the theme. Hopefully, I would be able to figure it out soon. E.

I had a hard time thinking of the colour scheme of my blog. I am 100% certain that the content area of the blog has to be WHITE. Well… at least I settled the content area.
Since I have no idea where to start from, I flipped through pages of the colour bridge. I didn’t look through every single colour, but I tried to observe which colours attract my attention and listed them out. After that, I started to compare and shortlist the ones that I could relate to. The above image shows the colours which I had shortlisted. My favourites are 2735 C and Reflex Blue C. Surprisingly, these colours are similar to the colour series in my wardrobe.
It wasn’t easy to streamline down to these colours. Furthermore, I would still need to further shortlist them, choosing only five(?) and making sure that they complement one another. It’s going to be tough, but I believe I could do it.
Do you like any colour(s) from the above list? E.
As and when I have ideas, I would just doodle a rough sketch in my iPad. I was thinking hard on what should be the focus and what should be included for the design of the header or the logo. I was wondering if I should either incorporate in a cat or a horse-shoe. After all the doodling, I have a rough idea of how the final design would be like. It’s going to be minimalistic – “less is more”. Hopefully, I would meet the deadline that I set for myself.
As mentioned earlier, I would be revamping my blog. So, I was thinking about the theme and the concept for the blog. It’s not easy. I know what I don’t want. At least, this helps a lot in the brainstorming process too.
So, I managed to come out with a draft of the header. However, this is not the final version. There’s just something missing about it. I can’t figure out what’s missing.
Yes, like the title suggested, this site would be under going a revamp. However, it doesn’t mean that I would not be posting any more posts. Right now, I have yet to think of any design or theme. So, the revamp would not take place so fast. It would be enforce slowly but certainly. Hopefully, I would be able to showcase the new look by the end of September. I have about 6 more months to come out with the design. During these 6 months, I would be blogging about the process of revamping, as I will single handedly do up all the designs and layout. I am looking forward to see the result.
