The New Look

*squealing in excitment*
Guyysss..notice anything different? Of course you do!.. I finally stepped up my game in giving the blog a new look.
How was the weekend? Mine was amazing thanks for asking. I went to see Barber's shop with my friends, it's a very hilarious movie but it's also a movie with depth, so it's a must watch.
So I know you're waiting for the part where I jump to 'inspiring' you, err..we will be taking a break from that today sorry😚 but its just because I want to basically talk about the survey that you guys filled, thank you for taking time out to respond to it by the way, means a lot.
Overall, I got good responses. More than 50% read the blog and that's really exciting, we can do better but that's a start at least.
Apart from making some little changes to the blog, I conducted the survey because I'm thinking of changing the name of the blog which is why I asked what you guys thought about the name "portable is the new hot". Majority think that it's good but can be changed which is what I think too. Nevertheless "portable is the new hot" is not going into extinction just like that, because I actually have great plans for that name. Don't worry you'll know soon enough *wink wink*
As you might have guessed, I'm considering changing the name to "Mides thoughts" hence, the instagram and Facebook pages.
Majority said the name was okay and so I'm still considering and open to other options.
I also got some really concrete suggestions. The main suggestion was that there should be regular and frequent updates. I know I'm  lagging in that department but I will try my best to make it frequent enough. I won't give reasons as to why it might be delayed at times so it won't come off as excuses, but have it in mind that I'm working on it.
Also a lot of people said they wanted more pictures. I agree as well, but I kinda dialled down on the pictures because at some point, Google adsense complained that the pictures were more than the content and i wouldn't want a situation where the blog will be discarded so I started reducing the pictures. Hopefully we've passed that stage now so I'll try to put pictures as much as I can just for you.
Somebody also wanted "colour" I hope you like how the blog looks
Guests inputs were also suggested.
Everybody likes varieties and this is something I've been looking into for a while now and i can assure you that you'll be seeing posts from other writers on the blog  just to spice things up a little bit.
Some people also suggested that I talk more about politics and stuffs happening around the country. Now as much as I'd love to do that, politics is not my strong suit at all, I don't like talking about politics because it ends up in arguments and controversies. It actually gives me headache so I try to avoid it at all cost, and yes writing is a hobby but it also requires you being involved in that particular thing you're writing about so it won't be boring and basic, thanks for suggesting though,I'll try it out sometime 😊
The new look is still work in progress as you can see, but soon enough we'll have a complete and beautiful website.
Thanks for all of your support so far, cheers to a beautiful week ahead.
Please like, share and leave a comment and now it's easier to do that, so I leave you with my happy dance..😊😊


  1. I saw barbers shop too but was a tad bit disappointed. Not because it wasn't good but because it wasn't really what I was expecting. Wasn't expecting so much depth, I just wanted to go and have a good laugh. Lol

    The blog theme is better than the other one but if you ask me, I think you should use a plain white background :D

    1. Omg! Allow me to gush first of all,the awesome cassie daves commented on my blog, this has got to be one of my best days.Lol
      As for barber's shop I totally get your drift😊😊
      And as for the theme, I'll definitely look into it. Thanks for stopping by cassie♡♡
