Exciting changes 2014!


"If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sun beams and you will always look lovely." -Roald Dahl

Being the new year, we decided it was time to give the blog the big revamp it needed. So here we are, you are looking at the new 'Shop Style Conquer'. We kept some key elements the same, but our main purpose of the makeover was to make the blog more user-friendly and easy to navigate. Our biggest change? We are now officially shopstyleconquer.com!! Yes, we took the plunge and purchased our own domain name; we are loving it!

For all of those other bloggers out there, we can totally relate to the frustrations of designing your own blog and mastering HTML. We decided to video the process of the blog revamp and share our experience taking this new step with our blog. Whether you are thinking of starting a blog, or perhaps your blog is in need of a makeover, we hope this video will provide you with some helpful tips and tricks, as well as a good laugh.



 Here some handy links that we used throughout the process:
Responsive blogger template (used as base for template. Has help in comments)
- saving and backing up blogger templates
- Basic CSS help
- HTML in the side bar tips
- removing widget titles
- buttons that change colour with hover
- HTML colours
- blogger search widget isn't working but this tutorial does!
- Godaddy (where we got our domain name)
- Tutorial for setting up godaddy on blogger 
P.S always check the comments of tutorials, there are often some great tips in there!
Using "inspect element" on your page is also great for figuring out your template.


We hope you like this video, show the love by giving it a thumbs up and sharing it!
Stay tuned for more exciting posts on www.shopstyleconquer.com !!!
