Plans, Plans, Plans
25th Feb 2014
There is, as promised, a new layout on its way. However, in my last post I said that I wasn’t going to be the one to code it. Well, I gave myself a reality slap and told myself not to give up on coding.
I still feel like I’m not good enough to make an improvement on each new layout I make, but at the end of the day as long as it does the job then I can live with it. And so, the new layout will look exactly like this but different colours haha!
The moment I posted my last blog post I regretted saying that I was giving up on coding. Instantly I had all these great blog ideas that I had to write down so I could remember to type them up in the near future. I really do enjoy blogging and I prefer to write something that is interesting and useful, in comparison to the usual “I went to uni” and “Everything is shit” type posts.
So, I’m making another simple layout to keep empfire looking tidy and refreshed and once that is done you will start to see lots of new posts, and hopefully more regularly.
What can you expect from the blog in the near future? Well, I’m hoping to write some posts about my home. For those of you who don’t know, Tyrone and I moved in together 6 months ago, into a cute flat in the centre of Liverpool. Just last week I signed the tenancy agreement for another 6 months. Since we moved in, we’ve been working hard to make our flat a home for us. We are renting and so we can’t make alterations to the walls and things like that, which came as a challenge. Keeping a place as small as ours tidy, organised and free from clutter is difficult. We don’t have a lot of storage space so we have to make the most of what we have.
I looked to Pinterest and blogs about decorating/organising homes for inspiration for small homes, but all I found was that what American’s consider to be a “small home” has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and countless living rooms. Okay, I’m exaggerating, because I’m completely jealous of your big homes, but there were no good ideas for genuinely small homes.
To address this problem, I started experimenting with ways of making the most out of small spaces, and I ended up coming up with some great ideas. I’d like to share these ideas with you in a series of blog posts called Small Spaces.
I also want to tell you more about my degree, life living in a city and my plans for the future. I want to share with you recipes, particularly for tasty vegetarian dishes (I’m not veggie but Tyrone is). I just want to write about everything. I’m going to avoid blogging like I’m recalling the events of the past week. You know, “I went here”, “We did this” and “Nobody will give a crap, but…”, type posts!
So stay tuned to see if I stick to my plans. I’ll have that layout up and running by the end of the week and will have lots of blog posts to follow. 🙂
