happy new year 2018, and small updates here and there

All the small things

First things first; HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! I hope that 2018 will treat you well, and be a good year overall!

And then on to the tiny update. As stated in my last post, I wanted to change a few things that you probably wouldn’t even notice. And so I have.

I started by changing the widgets a little, adding my Tumblr to the lot, while (sadly) removing my Storenvy. As I’ve still not been able to open the shop, I see no reason for it to be in there. I’ve then deleted the widget for donating via Ko-fi, and just placed the button in the ‘Find me here’ widget instead. I think it makes the widgets look a bit cleaner. I also deleted the drop-down menu for Ghosty, because seriously, it’s already linked under ‘Shop’. This de-clutters the menu a little.

I’ve also added something to the menu though; my anime reviews. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while now, and since one of my New Year’s resolutions is to add at least 10 new reviews this year, I figured that it was about time. Another reason for doing this is because of what I can see in my statistics. Overall, my fun section and anime reviews get the most traffic from Google searches, and of course I’d like to make it easier to find all of my reviews on a single page, should those visitors want to read more.

And last, but not least! I’ve gotten rid of all the Instagram photos linked from my account to this blog. Or, well, I just planted them on here as static photos. I’m sorry for losing out on the videos and slides that were implemented, as I’ve only switched out with the front photo of the slides, and blah. But really, the posts were old, and I doubt it’s going to bother anyone, as long as the main photo is visible. My Instagram accounts for crafting and my little dog are open to the public, so if it DOES bother you, you can always go have a look at the originals.

Oh by the way, did you know, that Instagram is gonna change for the even worse soon… again? They are gonna throw in random images from those your friends are following. So if you follow someone who follows content you don’t like, then pity. Whoa, I hate the service more and more every day. Oh well.

That’s it. Nothing big, but it was still quite time-consuming. I won’t change the layout or colors after all, or at least not anytime soon, as it requires more time than I’m willing to spend on it right now. I just want other stuff done first, but I’m very happy with the small changes I’ve completed now 🙂

(This post was brought to you by automatic posting, because it’s New Year’s, and although I neither drink nor party, I’m probably way too tired to do this today, haha!)
