Starting A Blog

Shit List Saturday? That doesn't sound good. WRONG! Listen, sometimes life just throws some shitty things your way. Whether it's the glorious FL traffic, spilling a drink on your new outfit, or trying to figure out the subtext when you receive a text, we just HAVE to comment on it. We've all been there, we all need to vent, let's do it together.

It's only appropriate that for the first Shit List Saturday, we comment on the fact that starting a blog is NOT easy! Don't you ever let me hear you say "Starting a blog is simple, anyone with a computer can start a blog." The first few days of trying to figure things out I'm pretty sure I looked exactly one of my recently used emojis:

Ok, sure, it may be simple AFTER you've stumbled around 14 different blog sites, had to delete 7 previous failed sites, changed your name 5 times, and watched what feels like 150 Youtube videos just to figure out how to make a different page for your adorable weekly categories.

UGH! I'm sorry web tutorial 214, you want me to try and code something? You've got to be joking. And don't even get me started on trying to choose a pre-made design template (shout out to Etsy for helping us on that front).

I'm going to be straight with you guys, this blog is going to need some fixing from time to time. We're still figuring it out but we'll get there. And so far the headaches have been totally worth it.
I can already feel my stressed out face emoji slowing fading away.

  2. Yupp... Story of my life right now. How *did* y'all make separate pages for each of the lists? Been trying for the past few days and still can't figure it out... Well, thanks for being my total inspiration (all of you guys)! Check out my blog (if you have time) at fashuccino.com and give me any feedback (sure there's lots. sigh.)! Have a great day!
