Welcome to my new home in the cloud.
I would be grateful to hear from you how do you like this look & feel? Honestly I feel elated and very happy to find a space that reflects my style and my decor.
When I jumped back into the blogosphere after a gap, I realised things have changed quite a bit. Sites have become more responsive and social icons needs to be prominent and above all the site has to be presentable and most importantly optimised for viewing on a smaller screen.
So when I confronted all these disparate requirements that come with changing technology and a change in tastes and preferences I decided that I needed to have a good self hosted platform. I was bit apprehensive about the move but after talking to a friend blogger I realised it is not as tough as it sounds. Hence I muttered up the confidence to move my files from blogspot to a self hosted WordPress.
With extremely limited knowledge about manoeuvring the sites behind the scenes,
I badly needed external help. Luckily I found Siteground that helps to host WordPress and offers free service to shift contents as well customise them to one of their standard themes that they offer.
Their online support is remarkable and for a non geek like me, I had loads of silly questions to ask, that were patiently answered & I finally managed to make the site live…
The theme was my own choice so I downloaded it from SolePine. It is one of the brightest and very responsive theme. I also found their support network quite amazing as you can easily raise a ticket with the author of theme and they are happy to extend their support.
Now all that is taken care of, and I have my keys to spear my website. I thought of kicking it with something sweet and drool worthy.
My boys have been begging me for homemade donut since long time. Every Time we head up for swimming lessons we end up buying donuts and this was getting to a point where I had to give it a go and try it myself at home.
It is an easy treat … dry active yeast helps to make it lighter. So during the school holidays, my boys teamed up to knead the dough and give it a go after watching the Video.
Dressing up the donuts is unlimited but honestly the warm homemade donut with cinnamon and sugar was amazing.
The boys were a bit reluctant to toss all the homemade donut with sugar and cinnamon so I made some frosting to play around.
