Welcome to 2017! The first Monday of the year is probably the most beaten day because most of us are still hungover from the holidays. I get it—who looks forward to adulting anyways? Kidding aside, I hope you’ve had a wonderful time spending the holidays with family and friends—
The thing I love most about January is the opportunity for everyone to start over. Starting off with a clean slate. I used to be critical about those who declare resolutions at the beginning of the new year, but if it’s the only way to keep their hopes up, then who am I to judge them? It’s utterly hypocritical of me when I make resolutions for the new year myself, isn’t it?

Strike while the iron is hot, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do today. My tutorial on how to create the RSS feed-to-Twitter IFTTT recipe last week created a buzz, so I’m going to share another one that you’ll absolutely want to do, too. Fancy a slightly special Instagram to Twitter IFTTT recipe?
As promised, I’m going to share a tutorial today on how I use one of my essential blogging tools: the IFTTT app. The program stands for “If this, then that”, which basically does exactly what is told. Each IFTTT command is called a “recipe”, and you can create as many recipes as you like. The most used rule in my case is the RSS Feed to Twitter recipe.
This post has been sitting in my drafts for months, and I finally got around to finishing it today. As you may have heard, blogging is fun, but is also tedious. Gone are the days when one just whips up a post without even thinking about what cover photo should go with it. However, blogging, like technology, evolves over time.
I didn’t care about the aesthetics of my blog nor the many other things that comes with it until about a year ago when I started reading other people’s blog, and realized what’s been lacking in mine. Here’s a rundown on the tools and resources I use, and I hope you find these helpful, too.
I know I still have a long way to go to be considered a blogging expert, but I have learned a lot in the three years that I’ve run my blog. People blog for several different reasons, and no matter what that is, everyone starts from somewhere: a blog.
I’d be lying if I tell that blogging is easy, but setting up a blog of your own is. I will share with you today the basics of starting a blog, and hope this will encourage you to finally take the leap.
The first thing that draws me into a site or blog other than content are its aesthetic features. In my three years of blogging experience, I have seen how blog designs have evolved from simple to complex. The more complicated the design is, the more interesting it gets. In hindsight, this was probably what inspired me to learn and explore basic HTML/CSS tricks, Photoshop, and other softwares on my own.
