Follow Friday #52: Blogging and Writing Resolutions


Feature and Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow!

Question: What New Years Blogging or Writing resolution have you placed on yourself?
Answer: I want to learn more about web design, HTML, and CSS so I can spruce up my blog this year. I might take classes or something. I am not sure yet. 

I also want to officially say that my book WILL get done this year. No more reasons why it's not perfect, I need to move on and try to get this thing published so I can start on book two of the series.



Please let me know if you followed me in your comment, so I can follow you back.

  2. Good luck with your book and web design! I work for a company doing graphic design and creating websites and it is a ton of fun. The linky thing is up now :) Here is my FF. Old Follower :D

    1. Ahhh, so jealous. I want a job like that.

    2. Hmmm...I wonder if it is a browser or cookie problem...May want to try closing out your browser and opening another one, or clearing your cookies. I hope it shows up soon.

    3. I cleared my cookies but still nothing. I did link up through my phone, so it's good. Don't know why it's not coming up on my computer. Some others are still not seeing it either.

  3. Jennifer, I'm having the same problem. Can't find the linky thing either. Not sure why? I've tried the same things you have. No Luck!

    Anyway, love your responses to this weeks question. Good Luck with the writing!

  4. Hopping through. Sorry you were having trouble with the linky. There seems to be a group of people having issues tonight. Not sure why this happens sometimes. Cross fingers that it'll be better in a few hours.

  5. Those are both great resolutions :) HTML and CSS are fairly simple, I'm sure you'll get the hang of it in no time :) Oooh book 2? Well hey, at least you've started your book! Mine is just all ideas and a picture board xD

    1. LOL, ideas and a picture board is a great start. I wish I plotted out my book before I wrote it. It has taken a lot of fixing up.

  6. Great resolutions! I also also need to bush up on my HTML but once you understand it all it fairy simple.

    I've been slowly learning some HTML, but I recently paid for someone to do my blog design, was too impatient :( Now I'm kinda regretting it...wish I had just gone with a pre-made design from Parajunkee and then learnt designing myself. As we speak, I got a few HTML/Web design books from the library.

    1. Thats a good idea. I should get some books from the library too. I like your blog look so it worked out I think.

  14. Jennifer, it's quite fun when you slowly learn HTML, I was too impatient so in the process of getting it designed by someoen else, however, I like learning little things to add to my blog design elements.

    Here's my Feature & Follow Friday post.
