Daily Monday

Experimenting with new themes

While searching and applying for jobs, I got reminded about my passion for coding. It’s been a while since I created something from scratch and I really struggled trying to get things to work this time haha. It took me two whole days to complete the final look of this. But I’m sure I’m going to make more tweaks here and there as time goes on.

This theme was actually quite similar to the previous one, but tweaked in a way that it’s cleaner and somewhat bigger? Haha. I suddenly miss Serif fonts, which is why I used it as the main family font for this theme. Also, I wanted to add avocado green and salmon pink colors as a shade to this theme, but I didn’t do that for now since I’m too lazy to tweak more styles. Maybe black and white are good enough? Lol.

I originally wanted to make the post format as masonry (like Pinterest posts) but I decided to give up after tweaking with some js and getting frustrated at my own blog for having lots of caches. I guess that project is for another time. I’m just happy that I can make it responsive for both PC and mobile perfectly this time!

Let me know what you think of the new theme and also feel free to let me know if you have any suggestions to improve this!

Daily Monday is here!

After hours of coding and staying up till 3 AM just because I couldn’t leave my work undone, finally, I finished this new layout! I named it Instalike cus it looks like the Instagram profile page. Haha. It’s been awhile since I’ve actually coded something from scratch, to be honest (well not really, some of the codes were recycled from my old themes). I was confused and stressed because I forgot how things worked in WordPress. God bless the creator of Google Search for always helping me out when I don’t know what to do.

Also, I changed my blog name just because! I just felt like changing it haha. I don’t know why I came up with Daily Monday but it just feels fresh? Something like starting a new week, starting anew. I don’t know how long I’ll stick with this name, but it’ll probably change again soon lol.

The layout is not 100% bug-free yet, and some of my pages haven’t been updated to suit the current changes so you might discover some errors. I’m also still working on the mobile version of this theme. Please do let me know if you found one so I can (hopefully) fix it. If there are any suggestions, I’d be happy to take them as well!

Until then!
