Blog

Hello World!

Well it took a lot of hard work but I have finally set up my first blogging website! 

It was a challenge figuring everything out but I am really pleased with how this turned out. In truth it kind of reminded me of setting up your rooms in Animal Crossing – fussy to start with but once you get the hang of it actually really fun. Thinking about it though it could also be the colour scheme!

I don’t doubt there will be improvements and redesigns as I become more practiced, but for a first attempt I am thrilled. I am very excited to start blogging and hopefully this will be the start of a new adventure. 

Current circumstances are generally pretty miserable and this lockdown is exhausting in a way the others were not. However, I am happy to have a new challenge to focus on alongside my university studies.

So welcome to Sometimes Vegan! I will start posting content very soon!

  1. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    1. Hello,

      Let me start by saying thank you for your praise, it is very much appreciated!

      This blog uses Dreamhost and WordPress and I have found the Post Page Builder plugin it provided really beginner friendly. It’s very intuitive so you can really learn from practice and a few googles pretty easily.

      Beside that I recommend getting a notepad / notepad app to note ideas about blog posts as random ideas often are good ideas with a bit of work!
      Is there anything more specific I can help you with and where can I find your blog? 😊

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and
    visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet
    explorer. Superb Blog!

    1. Thank you very much! I’ve kept it quite basic but personally I think that makes it much easier to navigate which is exactly what I wanted! The theme is BUTTON BY AUTOMATTIC and then I have just played with the colour scheme (it is a free theme)!

  3. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist
    with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to
    get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Thanks!

    1. I use the Jetpack plugin which I think helps with search engine optimization (still trying to figure it out in truth)! I have found as I post more content it is getting easier for people to find me so definitely think quantity can make a big difference to search engine optimization as well. Beside that I am planning to try Google sitemap which seems to be reviewed quite highly – it it works well for me I will report back!

  4. I’m really impressed together with your writing skills and also with the format on your blog.
    Is that this a paid topic or did you modify it your self?

    Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it
    is rare to see a great blog like this one today..

  5. My family members always say that I am wasting my time here at web, however I know I
    am getting knowledge every day by reading such nice content.

  6. It’s actually a great and helpful piece of info. I am happy that you shared
    this helpful info with us. Please keep us up to date like this.

    Thank you for sharing.

  7. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I
    could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding
    one? Thanks a lot!

  8. Great article! That is the kind of information that are meant to be shared around
    the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning
    this publish higher! Come on over and visit
    my web site . Thanks =)

  9. Hurrah! In the end I got a website from where I know how
    to truly get valuable information regarding my study and
    knowledge.

  10. Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?

    1. Hello! I recommend using Jetpack, Akismet Anti-Spam and All In One WP Security. Beside that make sure to use different passwords across your various online accounts always using a combination of capital letters, numbers and symbols.

  11. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself
    or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to design my own blog
    and would like to find out where u got this from.

    many thanks

    1. Thank you! I designed the website myself but used the free WordPress theme BUTTON BY AUTOMATTIC. I recommend using the Post and Page Builder Plugin for designing your website as it is very accessible and easy to use.

  12. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
    make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design.
    Thanks a lot

    1. Thank you very much! The theme is BUTTON BY AUTOMATTIC and then I have just played with the colour scheme (it is a free theme) offered by WordPress.
