So I’ve been addicted to maintaining this blog this weekend. It’s finally my free time after my usual busy days and I’ve been itching to complete this since I launched this blog.
I think most of the improvements are done, but I’ve probably missed some little things here and there (like padding and wrong :focus colors). When I envisioned this theme, I really want to go for the minimalist look with striking typography logo and striking accent color (hence that bold pink color). But I’m still a typography newbie so I felt something is still lacking so I added that pinkish flower background (credits to stocksnap.io) to some sections. I’ve never used a girly-ish theme before, most of my themes before looked generic af. ?
One of the perks of being a Web Designer / WordPress Developer is being introduced to some of the best premium themes out there and for this blog, I am using Genesis Framework with my own custom child theme. I used to think that for my own sites, I need to do everything from scratch but that’s really a lot work – design, front-end development, responsive fixes. With using a parent theme, I can focus on design and branding (and blogging!) which I really want to focus on rather than coding. And I really don’t have to worry about the responsiveness on mobiles and tablets. (Geez, meet the web design geek in me ?)
