Hello Sweetjellybean readers!
(and a big shout out to my lovely followers who recently joined the bean team! We’re a bunch of jolly beans here! )
This is just a catch up on my whereabouts and
excuses reasons for all the silence in the last few days.
Lately, yours truly have been doing a lot of self-learning about some mind boggling tech stuff to enhance our blogging experience especially for blog beginners, including myself. And since I’m fully aware that most of my new followers joined in the fun after the little DIY tutorial back in July, I wanted to learn something new so I could share them with you.. because I really want to keep you here, guys. 🙂
More Sweetjellybean tidbits:
– Sweetjellybean is almost 4 months old! Wow, time definitely flies. I didn’t even realize it until I started writing this post. And I am very lucky to have your never-ending support and blog-loving that made it possible for me to sail through the blogsphere further. Stalking each other has been a lot of fun! For those who would love to tweet with me or tumble, you’re more than welcome to. Don’t forget Facebook, I’m all over there. Just click my personalised social media *bean(icons) on my sidebar ——>.
These are the beans you want to be clicking – see you on that side! 🙂
– Blog hopping!
While ideas are cooking up in my head and waiting to be served, I’ve been blog hopping and leaving my blogprints to those who followed, commented and liked Sweetjellybean recently. It’s actually quite fun and is one of my ways of showing my appreciation for taking your time to visit my blog.
Also, it took me to one great blog like the Gnostic Bent by the awesome Mr Scott. His amazing post about 10 Things Why It Suck Being A Guy earned him the Freshly Pressed’s Page of Fame, as well as being chosen as one of the best FP’s of July 2012! You might want to check what the buzz is all about.
Over the weekend, I had a very techy challenge, when one of my blog followers asked me for help with her blog format. It was a challenge (that could have made my brain to combust) that also sparked an idea for my next post. This next post will involve simple, but useful tips for us blog beginners. So what’s this space peeps.
And so far, I’ve heard from two bloggers that they’re having issues with Pixlr Express fonts not appearing? That no matter how much you move around the Color picker, it still doesn’t show up and remains white? If you’re having the same issue, please let me know and I will take this up with the guys behind Pixlr and get some answers. Keep in touch, please.
Quick fix on the issue above:
- Font’s color issue – staying white or gray regardless of how many times you move the Color picker/slider.
Don’t you just love it when one of your followers go out their way, in the name of blogging? John at JohnMountFord.com did just that. So, if you are experiencing the same issue as above, here’s the quick fix to it. Thanks to John for messaging me and letting me know of the solution. Here’s the screenshot I did just to elaborate it even more and hopefully would prevent the same problem from happening.
Post-wise and design. I want a clutter-free blog and a clutter-free drafts section on my phone. Clutter-free blog means no headache for you when surfing my site! And clutter-free drafts section, means I can think clearly and properly. It’s a work in progress, so please bear with me.
My drafts section is full of
crap unfinished posts that when I checked again, they were not blog worthy at all, so discarding them was the best choice. How do you organize your posts? Do you set a schedule for them? Or are you one of those excellent writers who just post whenever that blogging feeling strikes you?
– Beauty alert:
I was fortunate to be chosen* by Leor to review one of their boxes. This is a UK based company that offers all natural pampering products, from face mask, lotion to bathing products. I will be sharing with you one of the FeelGood Box products, so ladies and gents (because no one says you can’t be pampered, too), stay tuned. And oh, Moms or Mommas-to-be, you’ll be pleased to know that their products are safe to use during pregnancy and also baby-skin friendly. Momma, you deserve a whollata pampering.
And BB cream lovers, you might want to stay close with me since I have more BB creams to introduce to you as well as skincare products, courtesy by wishtrend.com.
And last but not the least, you continue to inspire me. Hence, I’ve managed to come up with a new tagline fitting for Sweetjellybean – and basically I’ve decided for this to be ‘the one’ for the rest of my blogging lifetime.
Check out my newly revamped header/s (and yes they’re interchangeable so you’ll see different ones every click of a page!)
Guys, I value your comments, suggestions and opinions, so please feel free to talk to this bean.
So guys, what have you been up to? How’s blogging world treating you these days?
* A big thanks to Breige, at Beautyandthebestoftherest for recommending me to Leor.
