I am back! I’ve spent the last lovely couple of days in beautiful Berlin. More on that soon, but I have some Blogging 101 challenges to catch up on!
Firstly; to start a regular feature. I have already been attempting to do this with my “I Made That!” Mondays, so I decided to try and continue with this instead of starting another and not being able to keep up.
Second challenge; create a custom image widget! Well seeing as I’d hashed out the details of my regular feature, why not start with something relating to/advertising that? So I made a little custom image for “I Made That!” Mondays to go in my sidebar! Check it out over there! I think it’s cute!
Thirdly (stay with me here, I’ve been away for a week!), was to add a new page. I’ve actually added two! (Yes, I am a complete overachiever). The first is a contact page with a contact form and details of my social media pages. The second was a collective list of what will (hopefully) be a lot of “I Made That!” Monday posts. I wanted a page to make it easy and accessible to reach any of my makes without having to search back through the blog posts.
Lastly I had to sign up for another blogging event! After looking through the community event listings – and boy were there a lot of events that I thought looked cool! – the one that really stood out to me as something I wanted to be a part of was the Weekly Small Pleasures blog event, organised by Mani over at A New Life Wandering. I love the idea of sharing a little simple thing (or things!) that have made me smile during the week, hopefully to brighten someone else’s week a little bit more. So I’ll be participating in that from this week!
In that vein I’m going to share – a very small – something that made me smile this week. I am unashamed to say that I managed to go all the way to Germany…to buy a coffee from Starbucks. I’m a terrible human being and a complete tourist. But this interpretation of my name by the lovely barista made it all worth it:
I love it. I might have to start using it as an alias. I hope you’ve all had a lovely week! I’m going to try and post about my trip tomorrow when I’ve had time to collect my thoughts and checked to see if I took any photos that weren’t blurry.
