1. Did you design and construct the website yourself?
Yes. It took me about 3 months to make everything work but I have to stress that I have a full time job and a family to look after at the same time, so I believe this 3 months was quite fast! I had to do a lot of reading but most of the information is available on Google. If you are patient you can find everything you need to create your own website.
2. What service provider did you use?
I set up everything with GreenGeegs. They have a very good service and I didn’t have any problems + the price is good too.
3. What theme did you use?
SUNSPOT – however I made some modifications in order to get the intended results. All of the themes have limited options available. Mine allowed me to decide on the background color and other options, but I couldn’t change the type of font on the header even with an additional plug-in.
4. How did you make your blog to open so fast?
I used a few tools. First of all I used the plug-in W3 Total Cache and I’m always resizing pictures.
5. How long have you been blogging?
My blog is just over a year old now but it is like a drug, I got addicted to it very fast and I do believe there are many years of blogging to come.
6. Where do you take your ideas from?
I have three main sources of inspiration. First there is my day to day life. I’m a practical person and I’m composing posts along with creating what I need for me and my family.
The second source comes from spontaneous observations. Sometimes I see some pretty fabric or compositions of colors and ideas naturally come into my mind. Then I pick one or two but I always try to take a note of everything possible and sometimes an old thought can be the base for a brilliant design in the future.
Third source is natural curiosity. I love to try new things, new techniques or new tools. There are endless possibilities out there and I love finding out if can make use of them.
7. How do you find time for all this?
This is the most difficult part of blogging. I have a full time job and a family to take care of, so finding time is complicated. 🙂 I take notes of my ideas in any free few minutes. I buy supplies on my lunch breaks and complete projects along with taking pictures in the evenings or on the weekends. I write my posts early in the morning before my family gets up and I update my blog on my tea time break at work. Sometimes I think it is unbelievable I manage a few posts a month!FAQs,
