Follow Friday # 1

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. This week's featured bloggers are Kristin Can Read and Ex Libris.

Question of the Week:  
The New Year is here -- and everyone wants to know your New Years Blogging Resolution! What are you going to try to revise, revamp and redo for 2012 on your blog?

I think this is a very nice question for my first ever Follow Friday post. Personally, I don't do a New Year's resolution list because I just tend to break them and look the other way when I did. :)

But here's my New Year's blogging resolutions:

1. I'm trying to add a post slider/feature slider on my blog but it's really hard. Everytime I try to do one, it looks like a giant box of nothingness. So I'd really try to make it work this 2012.
2. I'll comment more. I make it a point that when someone visited my blog and leave a comment, I'd reply as fast as I can. I'll keep doing this and visit more blogs.

And I think that's all. I'm proud of my blog the way it is and I'll keep it that way. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Happy New Year!


  1. I obsessed over a slider when I was revamping my blog. And I still kinda do. I like mine the way it is, but I like how clear others have managed to get the photos. If I were to attempt to zoom in on the covers, it always comes out blurry! I don't know how other bloggers do it and I haven't had the courage to ask. Lol. Ah, well.

  2. @Stephanie

    Ooh, I've checked out your blog and it looks really cool! How did you manage to do it? Amazing. Love the new look!

  3. HOLY CROW! I totally agree and understand your resolutions.
    For most of 2011, I have been obsessing over trying to add a slider to my blog because those sliders were just so damn beautiful! But I have absolutely no idea how to put one.
    And that was my missing resolution: commenting! I so need to comment more.

    And and and! You're from the Philippines! :D Haha me too. Following back!

    Hi there Kababayan! :) I wonder who'd be great enough to tutor us clueless about this mysterious post slider.

    And you're from Makati! I'm from Cavite/Manila. :D

  5. Hopping through. I would like to learn more about blog design. Definitely hard.
