Do you remember, right before I left for Japan, I excitedly shared that the blog is going to have a new design? Well, many moons later, here it is! – If you are reading it from bloglovin’ or any other platform which I don’t know that exist, please hop into google and type www.ForeignGeek.com and check out the new blog design.
This design is truly a labor of love, for both me and the designer. Meaning, I had to be patient and wait for a very VERY long time, meanwhile, he had a tough time deciphering my messy wants, random wishes and ugly sketches. Anyways, all said and done, I am thankful for it, especially for all the technical things which would have taken me the same amount of time of acquiring a web design degree to complete by myself.
Now, let’s talk about the new sexy design. Wheee!! (For me, might be boring for you). Unlike in the past, where I changed my blog name along with the blog design once a year; this year, I stick with ForeignGeek but changed the design three times. And this is the first time I commissioned someone to do it, which if you see from the previous designs this year, arranged by yours truly, is a huge step up.
I got the design inspirations from a few blogs I admire and read regularly. The main change is the switch to magazine style which is what the cool kids are doing these days. I kept the blog header but I merged the Start Here and About Me called it The Geek. I removed the hundred tags from the last design (you can still refer to it on each blog post) and I moved the Instagram to the footer. I have also broadened my bucket list; adding into it my stamp collecting hobby and coffee obsession and called it Projects, just so it would appear fancier.
Lastly, design wise, I reinstated the Bio part on the sidebar after a numerous emails which contained “... Btw, what’s your name?“.
My name is NaNa and thank you for stopping by to my blog. I like writing, but it’s an extra dash of joy to have someone else read it. Let me know in the comment how or if you like the new blog design. Suggestion and feedback are welcome.
