Thank You PicMonkey

For as much as I blog, I often feel like such a rookie. Yeah, maybe I'm being a bit harsh on myself, but my blog is totally DIY, make- it-work just like everything else in my life.

  • My formatting is always cursed with random spaces and fixing it each time has come down to a methodical science (why does everything quadruple space when I paste from word?)
  • My fonts are sometimes inconsistent even though I continue to select the “default” font
  • My blog design is not near what I imagine and envision, and I spend HOURS googling HTML code to fix things that I typically can't figure out how to fix
  • I've made dozens of attempts at a new logo and background, yet I do not love any enough to actually commit 
  • My layout is not how I'd like it, but once again I waste time trying to learn HTML to fix it, and it still doesn't fix
  • My efforts to recruit followers (yeah, I only have 21) have also been a fail
  • I have no idea how to easily watermark photos or add cute tags
  • Making photo collages has always been a nightmare using some janky online collage tool or trying to rig them in Photoshop

The problem is that I want to be an expert. The reality is that I'm not. I'm a self-taught blogger with an extremely creative eye who is trapped in frustration because I can't make my blog look the way I want it to look or do the things I want it to do. My figure-it-out methods have simply just not worked.

So, why am I venting these frustrations that have irritated me for the past year? Because I want to say THANK YOU to PicMonkey for giving me a glimmer of hope.

Pic Monkey makes photo collages. Pic Monkey is easy. And best of all, Pic Monkey is free! Hallelujah, amen, thank goodness... and I don't even have to register to use it! Check out some of my DIY Wedding collage examples below that I made from PicMonkey.



So, to end this note, tell me, what makes/has made your blogging life easier? All tips and advice are MORE than welcome.

Thanks for listening!


  1. Happy Wednesday to you!

    Let me just say that you are farther along than I am. :)

    Beckie @ infarrantly creative would tell you to give it time and to cut yourself some slack. She is, by the way, the reason I found your blog.

    1. Ah, yes. Patience is a virtue. Thanks for the kind words. Glad to see some traffic from her site :) Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.


Thank you for stopping by. We love comments and kudos!
