Let’s restart

Sometimes we need a refresh button in life.

Sometimes.. the refresh button is just sitting there waiting for us to press it.


I think a lot of us generally find it difficult to step out of your comfort zone and restart something that is so insecure in life. But if you take that risk, 90% of the time, you will find yourself in a better position.

For the last two months, I have been working on this new design for my blog layout. Like life, I have reached over to the refresh button to refresh the life of my blog! I want a new fresh start to bring more exciting content to everyone!!

Many thanks to my webdesigner B (Bibiano Wenceslao), who has been patient with me throughout these two months and worked patiently with my demanding self (I can be such a bxtch at times). You can check out his designer portfolio here. 


New Blog Design - Chaigyaru.com

With the launch of this new blog layout, I want to introduce the new functions (also cause I’m really excited) that comes with it!

I love that this look is a much cleaner, more professional and more interactive design. It is also mobile-friendly so you can now read my blog off your mobile without having to download every image on the page (faster loading time and less data usage).

With the use of NuffnangX, you are also able to read my content off the NuffnangX app and comment via the application. Rather than the typical commenting system, I have implemented a Facebook friendly commenting system so that you do not need to enter your personal information again and again when leaving comments. You may also RT and Like my posts easily with the click of a button – I encourage that as it’ll make me very happy :)

If you have not already noticed it, the header contains my social networking links. This is an open invitation for you to stalk me on any of the other platforms. I am available on Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter, Tumblr and I’ll be happy for you to email me anything!

If you see anything that does not look like it’s in the right place, please let me know! I appreciate all feedback!

On a side note, if you’d like to advertise, please see this page and contact me here.

    It looks great! I’m reading from NNX and it works well. I’ve been overhauling mine for months too and nearly there. Yes, fresh is a good thing :)

    Oh wow, what a refreshing layout! It’s a far change from the pink but I still like it!
    Not sure if this is on purpose but the Youtube logo on the header doesn’t lead to anywhere? The Instagram, Tumblr and e-mail work fine though :)

    Those lashes (that you’re wearing in the header) are GORGEOUS! D: which ones are they? (if you don’t mind me asking.. ^__^”) and I love the new layout : D it’s super pro! And the features in the top header are so cool!
