So, that One Time when I Redesigned my OWN Blog...

Notice anything different around here? You're looking at a brand new Probably Polka Dots! What started as a fun Saturday project to prevent me from going to the mall and spending money turned into a full-on redesign. Honestly, I had no idea what I was doing, and I still am not sure how a lot of this even happened. I googled "How to...." more than I can count and watched so many YouTube videos it's not even funny. I didn't even save any images of what the blog looked like on Friday because I accidentally updated the "real" blog instead of the "test" blog...and I forgot to back the original up. Thus, totally new design. Whoops.

Some things you'll notice: 

1. Social Media Buttons! I now have fancy circular buttons/logos for each of my social media platforms. This was my first project of the day, and it was easy breezy thanks to Carrie. My favorite one is for sure the Bloglovin' icon. Too cute and clever. 

2. Lack of over-all dots. Y'all. I love polka dots. You should see my closet, but my side bar ones just weren't doing it for me anymore. I made the switch to two clean rows of dots around my header. I hope you love the simplicity as much as I do! 

3. Amazing (if I do say so myself) pages and icons. There are a few surprises and modifications coming to PPD and these icons are just the beginning. Look for sponsorship information soon. I hope to have it up within the next few weeks!

So what do you think? Hopefully you like it because the old images are lost in the abyss of my computer, and I am too lazy to recover them :) Love y'all! 

P.S. I even made a favicon - and it's a peach - I am so knowledgeable AND cute...humble too.



  1. I made my own design, too- it definitely is hard work, so that's so awesome for you! It looks great :)
