  1. Hey again Zelus-
    Hope you got my reply on my blog post. Again, thanks for the comment. So I wanted to give you some feedback, as requested. First of all, I super love your blog name. I feel like my pencil is often just that- hopeful. It would be cool to learn more about why you chose that name (maybe you've already written something and I just haven't discovered that post- I'll look for it.) As for your layout, it is cute, especially the header, but I find it a little bit...what's the word...hard? Aggressive? I'm not sure. I think just adding a bit more color would be fine, and maybe playing with the font. But hey, this is your blog and your space, if you like it, then I say keep it. Who cares what I think. Whatever it is, make it how you love it. Your hashtags gadget is great, and I like the pop of blue. Your posts are neat, and I love the reasons to smile idea- I have been thinking about it since I first opened it and you inspired me! I think I might start doing those posts. Anyways, this comment has gotten pretty long so I think I'll leave it at that. I hope this feedback is helpful. I'll be joining your blog- this is definitely some creative genius to follow!
    P.S. I have two lucky bamboo plants and I love them too. :)

    1. oh, one more thing I forgot to add- I would consider making the posts all the way displayed instead of having the read more button. It is just sometimes a hassle to have to open and close all those tabs. But again, it's up to you.

    2. Thanks for the long comment, I really appreciate your time and effort to give feedback! I'm not exactly sure how I got the name, but I liked writing and hope was quite important to me, so boom.
      For the harsh part- I agree, but at the same time I wanted a kinda 'minimalist' look... will continue playing around with that!
      Wow, we must have telepathy or something. Because at the time you were writing that last comment, I was editing my html code to have the 'continue reading' tab.
      Like wow.
      I can't.... words.

  2. ooh you messed with the format a little I LOVE IT!! the yellow looks so good! totally whimsical but classic too.

    1. Haha thanks! I'd received some feedback (from the survey I asked you guys to take, THANK YOU SO MUCH I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND EFFORT) and thought I'll play around with the CSS codes and stuff xD


Hello! If you have anything to add onto the post, or just to say hi, here's a smiley face for you :)

I love comments, I do read and reply to every single one, so do tick the 'notify me' box so you can read my replies.
