Weekly Favorites 2.19.16Friday, February 19, 2016
I'm curious how many of y'all use Wordpress as your blogging platform? When I first started blogging (in 2010..wow!) blogger was the only platform I really knew about. Then through my job, I started working with Wordpress and learning the basics of publishing on there. I feel like the things I can do with blogger are limited and are beginning to not fully meet my needs, where wordpress would be able to. For the most part, my HTML knowledge is self-taught..(shoutout to those Myspace theme days, lol) with a bit being knowledge shared via previous coworkers. Actually, I recently added to enroll and complete an HTML/CSS/SQL professional course to My Life List. So far, every design aspect and change that has appeared on Belle in the City has been done on my own (no fancy web designer here). I'm obviously no professional (#iwish), but I've been happy with everything so far. Last week, I decided to begin to make the transition over to wordpress and am still in the process of migrating everything. (Shout out to Rachel for sharing some of her tips with me!) If you've made the switch from blogger to wordpress, do you have any advice?
I've really been wanting to share some more DIY projects with you all and if you follow me on Pinterest - belleinthecity I have been pinning up a storm to my DIY board and Recipe board. Are there any things in specific y'all want to see? A few things on my list right now are, a wooden framed floor mirror, a striped accent wall, brush lettering tutorial, and at-home face exfoliator scrub, along with a few recipes I've tried recently.
