4 simple goals before 2013 - halftime update part II

Here is the second part of my 4 simple goals challenge update:

3. Make a home:
No progress here, I'm afraid. Still no pictures on the wall, still no cosy corners:-(. I'm thinking of starting a pinterest board to gather some inspiration, but I guess a homely home doesn't come overnight...

4. Improve Anchor & Sing:
I haven't actually started the Blog Love E-course yet, but I had a lot of other things on my to-do list that I wanted to implement anyway. I also got a few additional ideas from the 'Blogging for Creatives' book (see this post for a review).
So, here's a list of recent changes to the blog:

- a search bar after reading the DIY Blog Redesign series from The Flourishing Abode.
- a Creative Commons License
- categories to my sidebar
- my twitter feed to the sidebar (I'm @anchorandsing if you would like to follow)
- a note to my comment form
I have also updated my blogroll and it's now revolving.

These are mostly really simple and small changes and yet, some of them took me forever! I guess Rome wasn't built in a day, but there's so much technological stuff to learn about when you're fairly new to blogging, it's quite mind-boggling. Anyway, I'll keep at it and hopefully you'll see some more exciting changes soon.


  1. ooh, that blogging for creatives book looks good! i've been all into these sorts of books lately, and am going to look it up on amazon now. x

  2. I hadn't heard of the Blogging for Creatives book before. I'll have to check it out!

    As for making a home, I've found that it's easiest one little bit and piece and a time. Before you know it, you've got something that's beautiful and nearly finished! I love vinyl wall decals for decorating our rental.


I love to hear from you!
