When designing my blog, I knew that I wanted a layout that was simple and clean. I wanted the design to be minimal, only incorporating a few subtle colors into the color palette. A lot of the blogs that I like to follow are also minimalistic in its design, which therefore influenced the overall design of my blog. I took inspiration from theklog.co as well as an old Tumblr blog that I had from a few years ago. Although my Tumblr blog is a few years old now, it still embodied timeless elements of design that I still find very appealing, which is why I incorporated some of those elements into the design.
