    Another Investment to My Blog. Is it worth it?


    Assalamualaikum wrb. Hi lovelies.

    I'm sure some of you might've noticed the massive changes I've made to my blog since months ago when I started my new blog. I've always wanted a template which suits me best. I am so bad at organising things that I think no template has really caught my eyes as much as this one does.

    Finally

    I've been eyeing on this template since last year and haven't really had the opportunity to get it for myself. Having a proper blog template which I really like actually inspires me to write more in a better and appropriate way. And I am always trying my best to improve myself in whatever I am doing, that includes blogging.



    This current template is just like I wanted. Why?

    • First, it's a black and white theme. I've always love black but less for white. Anyway the two colours complete each other so it's perfect. 
    • It's easier to navigate and the archive are much more convenient to look at with all the details.
    • Still looks minimal and compact to me. Just the way I like it as it is pleasing to the eyes, at least for my eyes. 
    • My most favourite part are the slider. I can have a better view of my recent and monthly post each and every time I went back to my page. 
    • My ads are working just fine on this template and there's nothing better than having your blog as one of the medium where you can release some stress plus a source of a little income. 

    Goals and Satisfactions

    Actually, I had a goal of my own in blogging. I'm not a good write nor blogger but I do have high hopes for my little blog. And to my surprise it actually gives me a lot of things which I never expect to have. Satisfactions.

    Why?

    Never thought blogging could give me so many things. Back then blogging was just a medium for me to rant and ramble random things which I found really fun to do but never though it could sound so weird and maybe 'stupid' to me because you know, we had those moments where our immaturity took over for quite a number of years.

    But now, not anymore. I've gain so much from this blog even though it has only been a year since I started this new blog.

    Not a Perfectionist

    I was never a perfectionist but when it comes to the things I love, I'd prefer to have it to the point which I am fully satisfied with it. Meaning that, I'd love to have it perfect in my own views. It doesn't matter if other people find it weird or different but it is enough if my preferences were ticked off.

    Worth it? 

    Yes, everything I did to my blog was a great investment since I actually gain a lot of beneficial things from it. Never once I thought it was useless and yes I was right. Those people who are in the same shoes would probably understand what I was trying to say here. This time I promised myself not to change anymore template and I would stick to this one as long as I can. 

    So, what do you think of my new template? Let me know your thoughts on it in the comment below. 

    Warmly,
    Ray
